Teeboy Kamara (born May 18, 1996 in Liberia) is an Australian football (soccer) player who currently plays as a forward for Inglewood United.

Club career[edit]

Adelaide United[edit]

In 2011, Kamara signed with A-League club Adelaide United. He made his professional debut in the 2011-12 A-League season on 16 December 2011, in a round 11 clash against Gold Coast United[1] making him the youngest player to make a senior appearance in the competition. He was just 15 years and 212 days old. He also made an additional 2 appearances in the Asian Champions league for Adelaide.

On 21 December 2011 it was announced he had signed a 3 year senior contract with Adelaide United with the contract beginning on his 16th birthday.[2]

However, in spite of a promising start to his career, Kamara was sidelined with an undisclosed illness over a two year period. He was eventually released from his contract by the club.[3] He was accordingly signed by Inglewood United to play in the NPL WA.[4]

Personal life[edit]

In 2002 at the age of 6 he moved to Australia with his mother and siblings to escape the civil war in his homeland. His stepfather was the goalkeeper coach of the Liberia national football team.[5]
