The Swope Park Rangers announced they have signed Ayyoub Allach and Jerome Ngom Mbekeli for the 2019 season. Both transactions are pending league and federation approval.
Allach, 20, is a midfielder that has spent his entire young career in Belgium. He made more than 50 appearances, primarily in the Proximus League, Belgium’s second division. Allach was born in Belgium but is of Moroccan descent and has represented Morocco at the under-20 level.
Ngom, is on loan from Czech side MFK Vyskov but has primarily played for Apejes FC de Mfou in his home country of Cameroon. Ngom, also 20, has represented Cameroon at various youth levels including the under-23’s.
Swope Park lists Ngom as a midfielder but most sources refer to him as a defender in general or a central defender specifically.
