As previously announced, the Crocs has finally finalized their signing of Liberian Patrick Gerhardt.

The tall defender who previously played in Iraq will don the Crocs colours, in which he will wear number 47. Robert Alberts, the Sarawak head coach is positive that Patrick will help the defences of the Crocs, with Patrick largely expected to make his debut against PDRM this Friday.

According to Datu Sudarsono, Sarawak is awaiting the International Transfer Certificate (ITC) which will allow him to play this Friday.

Patrick was unveiled by Datu Sudarsono at a brief ceremony yesterday at Padang D, making him only the second player in Sarawak to be accorded such a ceremony since 2013. The first player to enjoy such an event was Ryan Griffith.
