Biography[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Caserta, Campania, Bova started his career at Campania side S.S.C. Napoli. In 2003, he graduated from Primavera under–19 team and left for Serie D side Faenza. After the bankrupt of Napoli in 2004, he left for Serie C2 club Imolese. With Imolese, he was a regular starter of the team, and earned a call-up to Italy U21 B team for 2005 Mediterranean Games, and for a preparation match against Serie D Best XI.[2] He played the match against Morocco and on the bench against Libya.[3][4]

He also selected to annual Serie C Quadrangular Tournament, but for Serie C2/B U21 representative team in February 2005.[5]

Cesena[edit]

In July 2005, he was signed by Serie B club Cesena. In although not a regular of Cesena, he also received a call-up from Italy under-21 Serie B representative team in November 2005, for a training camp and against Pro Patria's youth team (Berretti team).[6]

In January 2007, he was loaned to Serie C1 side Grosseto.[7] In January 2008, he was loaned to Serie C2 side South Tyrol.[8]

Lucchese[edit]

In 2008–09 season, he left for Lucchese and won Group D champion of Serie D. In the next season he won promotion to Prima Divisione as Group A champion. Nella stagione seguente continua a rappresentare un punto di riferimento costante nella squadra rossonera che disputa un campionato dignitoso di centro-classifica.

Curiosità[edit]

Per la sua tenacia e per il gioco maschio è soprannominato lo "spezzatibie" dai suoi tifosi. A dispetto di questo aggettivo, chiaramente goliardico, si è sempre contraddistinto per la sua sportività e la sua professionalità dentro e fuori dal campo. Persona generosissima, socialmente attivo in organizzazioni di beneficenza con il suo amico fraterno nonchè compagno di squadra Francesco De Marco.
