Welcome to Peterhead

Aug 31, 2022

Peterhead manager Jim McInally’s policy of spreading his recruitment net far and wide has landed another catch with Egyptian midfielder Ramez Hefzalla agreeing to join the Blue Toon on a short term deal. The 18 year old was born in England to an Egyptian father and a Moroccan mother and was asked to represent both countries of his parents’ birth before opting to join the Egyptian under-20 team earlier this year. Hefzalla is a product of the Youth system at English Championship side Millwall and is joining the Blue Toon following his release from the London club with manager McInally saying: “Ramez is a very gifted player technically who has great skill and has the potential to entertain our fans. It really is a win-win situation for both parties as we are getting the opportunity to use a player that we would potentially not have found had we gone down the traditional recruitment routes and Ramez is getting the chance to show what he can do in a first team environment.”
