Finland lower division club Ekenäs IF have announced the signing of the duo today. Konqobe, now 24, joins from Glad Africa Championship side Steenburg United while the striker Darren Smith, aged 23, leaves SuperSport United.
“Aya Ayabulela Kongqobe (hereafter only Aya) and Darren Smith, both from South Africa are ready for Ekenäs IF for the season. Both have a one-year contract,” wrote the club on their official website.
Konqobe is now particularly well-traveled for his age. He has been at places like Ajax Cape Town, SuperSport, AmaZulu and Chippa United.
