Barnet Football Club are delighted to announce the double signing of Luisma Villa and Roberto Garcia Casabella subject to international clearance.

The Spanish duo have been with the club for a number of weeks and they have impressed during matches against Ipswich Town, Hendon and MK Dons. 

Luisma, 23, began his career with Racing Santander before moving on to play for Real Union, Alavas and Amorebieta. He spent last season with Spainish third division side Noja.

He made one appearances for Los Racinguistas in each of the 2007/08, 2008/09 and 2009/10 seasons including a 20 minute cameo at the Camp Nou in a 4-0 loss to FC Barcelona. 

26-year-old Casabella has also plied his trade in Spain, beginning his career with Real Madrid before moving to fierce rivals Atletico.

He spent two-years with Atletico B and C before spells with CD San Fernando, UD Puertollano, Lorca Atletico CF and UB Conquense. 

Following a six-year stint in Segunda B Casabella joined Moldovan National Division side FC Milsami Orhei. This led to him featuring in last season’s Moldovan Super Cup final win over FC Sheriff Tiraspol and in a 4-2 win over FC Aktobe in the UEFA Europa League. 

Both signings represent a major coup for the Bees who are looking increasingly strong as the 2013/14 season approaches.
