Jamil Fearrington (born April 20, 1986) is a Danish American football defender currently playing for Arendal Fotball. He has also represented Denmark internationally at various youth levels.

Football career[edit]

Fearrington started playing football in Vanløse IF. He initially based his game on his natural strength and speed. Through practice, dedication and hard work, Fearrington became a more skilled player and eventually became a part of the first youth team. He later moved to the youth team of Kjøbenhavns Boldklub, the reserve team of multiple Danish champions F.C. Copenhagen (FCK). In the autumn 2006 he was included in the FCK first team, but only played a single official match for the team in the TELE2 Liga Cup against Brøndby IF. He had several unofficial games in the Viasat Cup and exhibition matches.

Jamil Fearrington is only the eighth American to be registered for Champions League play.

In March 2007, he had an unsuccessful trial with American giants, DC United. In July 2007 he moved to Norwegian Stavanger I.F. After a very successful six months in Stavanger, Jamil Fearrington was signed by 1. division club, Sandnes Ulf, in mid-January 2008, he left the club at the end of the year 2008 and signed on 6 March 2009 with Boldklubben Frem.[1] In 2009 he was invited for trials with both Real Salt Lake and Los Angeles Galaxy. He played a solid exhibition match for Galaxy against FC Heridiano, which attracted interest from several North American clubs.

In August, 2009, Fearrington signed with Danish 1. division club, FC Roskilde. After one year in Roskilde, he canceled the contract and signed a 6-month deal with Danish 2. division club Stenløse BK. In 2011 he left Stenløse BK and signed with another 2. division club Rishøj Boldklub. By the end of the season Fearrington signed a 1-year deal with tradition club Fremad Amager.

When his deal with Fremad Amager expired he made the move to Skjold Birkerød and signed a 1-year contract. There he managed to play every minute of every game of the season.

In July, 2013, Fearrington made another move to Norwegian football, when he signed a deal with Arendal Fotball for the remainder of the season. He instantly had a positive impact on the team, which saw them move from dead last and ending the season in top of the league. After the season Fearrington signed a new contract with the club for the 2014 season.

He can play practically any position on the field, but prefers playing right back, central midfield or center back.[2] Jamil has publicly stated his intention to play for the US National Team.[3]
