Former Craig Bellamy academy player Umaru Samura has expressed his delight after his debut goal with Cambodian second-tier side Koh Kong on Sunday.

Samura, 23, who joined Koh Kong FC on a year deal, opened his account in the 5th-minute en-route a 7-1 thrashing of Tboung Khmum.

The midfielder, who was part of Craig Bellamy’s 2014 for the 1st Generation boys, was happy to start well with his new club.

“It was a great win and I was happy to start the season with a goal to my name,” Samura told FSL News.

“It’s a new beginning for me. As always, every young footballer’s dream is to play at the highest level in Europe someday.”

“In 2014, It was a great experience for me when I was named captained the Craig Bellamy’s academy first-ever tournament in Europe, the Milk Cup tournament in Belfast, Northern Ireland.”

“In 2017, I signed for a professional club in Ivory coast with Ivoire Académie, where I spent two seasons. In 2019, I joined FC Johansen on loan, but because of the COVID-19, I didn’t play as the season was halted.”

“In 2021, I signed for Sierra FC before joining Koh Kong FC on March 2nd 2022.”

Samura has been part of Leone Stars 2018 friendly match in Monrovia against Liberia senior team.
