A great fan’s favourite, Ciardini returned to Farnborough in February 2012 following a spell at Lewes where he teamed up with ex ‘Boro boss Steve King.

A technically skilful midfielder who loves to get forward and gets his fair share of goals, he joined Southampton from youth football at Farnborough Town, before re-joining Farnborough where he has played for the youth, reserve and first-teams. Has also had trials at AFC Bournemouth and Swindon Town.

Was a member of ‘Boro’s Southern League Division One South and Southern League Premier Division squads.
