The former Island under-21 captain and current Muratti player has been training with the League One club for the past few weeks and he has obviously proved his worth.

Vincenti (21) – the current Coca-Cola footballer of the year – was one of four triallists who played in pre-season friendly in south London last Wednesday against Tooting and Mitcham, he also played against Sutton United the week previous together with making a substitute’s appearance against Kingstonian for the London club.

Vincenti, who declined to reveal any contract details, said: ‘I’m delighted, this is a great opportunity for me and hopefully I can move forward.

It’s a big step up and over the past two weeks I’ve played two 90-minute games against Tooting and Mitcham and Sutton United and came on as a sub against Kingstonian.

‘Personally I think I’ve done well and I’m sure the hard work put in before and during the recent Island Games in Rhodes has helped me with my fitness.

‘Had it been any other start of season I would not have put in the work I did over the summer in preparation for the Games.

‘It’s a big step up and I know I still have a lot of hard work to do with regard to my fitness – especially with my body strength.

‘This is a great opportunity for me and I really want to make something out of it.’ The former De La Salle student’s trial at Millwall was arranged by St Peter FC official Brian Foulser.

Vincenti, a product of the Jersey Football Association’s Centre of Excellence, added: ‘Brian arranged the Millwall visit for me and I’d like to thank him and St Peter Football Club for what they have done for me.

St Peter manager Jon Trigg said: ‘Everyone at St Peter is delighted.

Personally I think it is perfect timing for him as he has recently finished university and came out with a degree.

‘We all wish him the best and look forward to seeing him flourish on the big stage.’
