The Aussie exodus from Genclerbirligi

News just in that Aussie Bruce has been loaned out to Diyarbakirspor.

Bruce was a great fellow but didn't really acheive what we hoped for in the one and-a-half years he has been at the club, scoring just seven goals in 24 appearances. He has been loaned to the south-eastern Turkey club (which has recently had some fairly big financial hassles) on a six-month deal with a one-year extension clause. The monetary details of the deal were not released.

With Aussie Bruce now gone, Gencler no longer have any Australians in the main squad. James Troisi left at the beginning of the season signing a secret deal with Kayseri - and has been getting stick from the Gencler fans ever since, and Mile Jedinak is currently playing for Antalya on loan - a decision by our management that the Gencler fans have yet to understand.

And thus, for the moment, the Gencler-Australia connection has been severed. That's if you don't count your good correspondant and Ambo Kanka Peter.
