FORMER Colchester United attacker Luke Gambin has found a new club.

The 28-year-old was one of a number of players to be released by the U's, in May.

And Gambin has now joined Maltese League champions, Hamrun Spartans.

The Malta international spent the second part of the season on the books of Newport County and helped the team to reach the play-offs.

He joined Newport having found his opportunities few and far between at Colchester, at the start of last season.

Gambin had signed for Colchester in the summer of 2019, on a two-year deal.

He linked up with the U's when he was released by Luton Town, after his contract expired at Kenilworth Road.

Gambin made 50 appearances during his time at the JobServe Community Stadium, scoring twice.

But the attacker found game time difficult to find and managed only 15 league starts for the U's, during the last two seasons.

Gambin started at AFC Wimbledon before moving to Barnet in 2009, as a trainee.

Gambin helped the Bees to promotion in the National League in 2014/15, as they returned to the EFL.

He made 132 appearances for the Bees before leaving them to join Luton in 2017 and helped the Hatters make the play-offs, before joining Colchester.

In total, he has made more than 200 appearances during his career, to date and will now be aiming to achieve success in Malta with Spartans.
