Bangkok, Thailand, February 1, 2021 – Philippine spiker Marck Espejo, who played as import for Oita Miyoshi in the Japan V League and Visakha in the 2020 Thailand League season that was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, was honored by Bahrain League volleyball club Bani Jamra in a farewell ceremony at the end of his contract, spin.ph said in its news release on Sunday.
The Filipino import starred for Bani Jamra, which won four of 13 matches and was sixth out of eight squads in the Isa bin Rashid Volleyball League first division.
In his final match of the season last week, Espejo helped Bani Jamra pulled off a 25- 22, 25-20, 17-25, 25-19 victory over A’ali.
Espejo joined the club on November 5 and his contract ended on Saturday. The former Ateneo star returned to the Philippines on Sunday. Bahrain was Espejo’s third overseas stint after playing professionally in Japan and Thailand.
Espejo is part of the Philippines men’s national volleyball team, which is still waiting for the plans of the newly-formed Philippine National Volleyball Federation for the 2021 Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam and other AVC tournaments.
