Gambia U-20 Striker Signs Deal

Striker Alasana Camara has completed a move to Scandinavia from GFA domestic league club Steve Biko, an unimpeachable club insider intimates to this news outlet.

Camara, who goes by his sobriquet 'Jarra', is the second Gambian to join the Finnish second tier side KooTeePee after former Banjul Hawks and Gambia U-20 captain defender Ken Malamin Jammeh. The duration of the contract and fee is undisclosed. Biko coach Abdoulie Bojang directed Foroyaa Sport to Kemo Ceesay for comments, who was unreachable at press time. The signature of the left-footed huge forward increases the Gambian contingent in the Scandinavian country to seven with Dawda Bah, Omar Colley, Demba Savage, Ken Malamin Jammeh, Sam Jammeh and Saja Leigh all making up the numbers.

Jarra had a couple of trials at Spanish side Deportivo La De Cruna and in the Turkish top flight in 2009 without success. The forward was conferred with golden boot gong when he finished joint top scorer on four goals with Ebrima Bojang during the Baby Scorpion's triumphant outing in the African U-17 championship in Algeria, in 2009.
