Mumbai: Pune FC have boosted their strike force by adding the tall Boima Jerry Karpeh for their final assault of the I-League in place of Japanese player Daisuke Nishiguchi, who was released in the first week this month.
"The 28-year-old Jerry, a naturalised Australian, born in Liberia, Africa, thus fulfils the Asian quota as per I-League regulations," said a media release from the club. The Perth-based 6'2'' striker, who played 14 I-League games for Churchill Brothers in 2010-11, has the experience of playing for several clubs in Western Australia (Football West Premier League), which include top honours with Perth SC and Floreat Athena.
Jerry had been top scorer in the West Australian league. Subsequently, he featured for A-League side Perth Glory (2007-08) and figured in seven games. After a couple of more seasons below the A-League, Jerry decided to move out of Australia and trade his skills.
