Mossley have lost the services of young striker Fabio Abreu who has signed a three year deal with Portuguese Primeira Liga club SC Marítimo.

Fabio has signed for a one year scholarship which will be followed by a two year pro contract with the Madeira based top flight side.

The exciting prospect scored with his first touch for the Mossley first team after coming on as a substitute against AFC Fylde in April after scoring consistently for the Lilywhites Reserve & Youth teams. He was capped three times last season by England at under 18 schoolboy level and scored twice in their final game of last season in a 3-2 win over the Republic of Ireland.

He had an unsuccesful trial with Portuguese giants Benfica before being snapped up by Marítimo.

Fabio goes with the best wishes of everyone at Mossley Football Club.
