Serie C promotion delights for Sierra Leone-born Ceesay

Winston Razel Ceesay was pleased with his side’s playoff promotion to Serie C after they overcame Cavese 3-1 in Vibo Valentia on Sunday.

Brindisi FC returned to the Italian third division Serie C after 33 years, reappearing among the professionals after 12 seasons.

Sierra Leone-born Winston Ceesay, 22, has been pivotal since joining the club in December 2022. He featured in 22 league games for Brindisi this campaign. 

“I want to say thanks to the club for giving me such an opportunity to play for a great side. We all made history together,” delighted Ceesay told FSL News.

“It’s an amazing feeling to be a champion. Winning this was a great achievement. I am proud of the team and myself. We’re all looking forward to starting the new challenge together as a team.”

“It’s a great day for Brindisi Football Club, back after 33 years among the professionals. Congratulations to everyone, to Mr Ciro Danucci and to the boys, who have brought the blue-and-whites back into the football that counts. Score us one more goal, Brindisi”. This is how Michele Emiliano, president of the Puglia Region, celebrates Brindisi’s promotion to Serie C after the play-off in Vibo Valentia with Cavese.

Ceesay started his pro career with Italian Serie D club Troina in the 2018–19 season before he moved to Licata the following season, where he found regular playing time. In January 2020, Serie C club Siena signed Ceesay on a permanent deal.

However, the league got halted within the next few weeks due to the COVID-19 2pandemic in Italy, and he left the club without making any appearances for them.

On 12 November 2020, Lucchese announced the signing of Ceesay on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Winston made his Serie C and professional debut on 15 November 2020 in a 1–1 draw against Pro Sesto. He was released by the club on 1 February 2021 after making seven league appearances.

On 29 March 2021, Serie D Club Rotonda announced the signing of Ceesay. On 18 July 2022, he moved to Trapani.

He, however, couldn’t find enough playing time at Trapani and joined fellow Serie D club Brindisi in December 2022.

In March 2022, Ceesay received his first call-up to Sierra Leone national team for friendly matches against TogoLiberia and Congo. He made his international debut on 29 March 2022 in a 2–1 win against Congo.
