New faces: De Giorgis and Pages

Belgrano have announced the first two signings of the pre-season: young goalkeeper Carlos De Giorgis and experienced left-back Rodrigo Hernan Pages. De Giorgis played for Gimnasia de Jujuy last season without making a single appearance while Pages was part of the rotation in Banfield. The coach Ferraro had hinted that he needed to strengthen the defense with experienced players. The addition of Pages will certainly provide more depth to the defense. De Giorgis is more of a mistery since he has only filled in as a backup player throughout most of his career. But then again, this may be a strategy to cover for the likely sale of German Montoya. Who knows...

We welcome these two players and hope they are succesful and bring effort and energy to the team. We can only hope that they learn quickly what playing for Belgrano means. We don't ask much, just a strong committment and playing your arse out there in the pitch!!!
