Warriors seal deal with Kaltak

Earlier this month, Kaltak was reported to have struck a deal with Papua New Guinea side Hekari United but, following the successful international tri-series between Solomon Warriors and Kaltak’s Vanuatu club side Erakor Golden Star, the youngster has agreed a contract with the Solomon outfit.
The two clubs recently cemented their relationship with a sister club agreement, which is believed to have helped pave the way for Kaltak to join the Warriors.
The young defender says he has dreamed of playing for a Solomon Islands club and the sister club arrangement provided the final impetus.
“After the discussions things looked positive for me so I signed the contract on Thursday,” Kaltak says.
“The reason for signing with the Warriors is because of our relationship with them.”
Solomon Warriors president Bodo Detke says the signing is a major achievement for the club.
“It has been a good negotiation to finally get the services of Brian. With this confirmation we can now put to rest speculation that he might play against us with another club,” Detke says.
In the tri-series final, Erakor Golden Star managed to get one back on the home side, securing a 2-1 victory on Friday and their first international win.
The Solomon Warriors, who had already secured the series with wins in the first two matches, rested a number of key players for the final match.
Erakor coach Timothy Wayane says while the Warriors may have fielded a different team to the first two games, the win could also be attributed to his team’s tactical response.
“The team played well and adapted their style well after studying the Warriors in the previous two matches,” Wayane says.
The tri-series is part of the Solomon Warriors’ build-up to the OFC Champions League which is due to start in late March.
