TORQUAY UNITED sign Brazilian keeper Cavagnari

Gary Johnson's newly promoted National League yellows Torquay United FC have signed Brazilian goalkeeper Lucas Covolan Cavagnari from Worthing.

Cavagnari, 27, is a former Brazil Under 20s international and joined giants Vasco Da Gama as a youngster.

He counts Atletico Paranaense, Bento Goncalves (loan), Toledo, Rio Branco and Union Deportivo Alaro among his former clubs in Brazil. After coming to England he joined Whitehawk and Lewes before moving to Isthmian Premier outfit Worthing.

United boss Johnson - who led Torquay to National League South runaway success last term - said: “First of all he’s a very good goalkeeper.

“It’s very important in next season’s National League to have two goalkeepers that will be competing for a place.

“During the season we got permission from his club Worthing to have a look at him over a few days and we liked what we saw.

“He’s Brazilian and came over to find his way in the English leagues. If you’re from Brazil then Torquay’s probably the place to go next! 
We appreciate the work of James Garley of Achieve Management who is Lucas’ representative in England.

“I believe Lucas can definitely make his way in the game up the league ladder. We’re very pleased to have signed him.”
