Former Aucklander and New Zealand U-17 international Konstantino Gorgiovski has signed a senior player contract with Macedonian second division club FK Belasica.

Midfielder Gorgiovski (16) was a member of the New Zealand side that won January’s OFC U-17 Championship in Fiji, to qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup due to be held in Indonesia in November.

As a six-year-old, Gorgiovski played for Oratia United. He then played junior football at Waitemata FC, Ellerslie and East Coast Bays before heading for Europe late last year.

The club plays in the second league and has twice played in the UEFA Cup, two decades ago.

His national U-17 teammate Marley Leuluai has also signed for a new club, joining English Premier League side Burnley after his departure from Manchester City.
