Boima Karpeh (born 16 June 1984), also known as Jerry Karpeh, is a Liberian-Australian professional footballer who last played for South China in the Hong Kong Premier League.


Karpeh was the Football West State League top goal scorer in 2007 playing for Floreat Athena where he won the club's Fairest & Best Award.

A-League club Perth Glory signed Karpeh during the 2007/2008 season playing seven games for the club.

Karpeh trialled with A-League club Newcastle Jets in September 2007 but a contract was not negotiated between Karpeh and the club.

Scoring many goals for his next clubs he then made a decision in 2011 to move to India and play for Churchill Brothers and become winner of the 2011 IFA Shield Cup with them.

Next year found him in Indonesia having a complete season with 23 games and 7 goals scored for Persisam Putra Samarinda.

In August 2012 Jerry received invitation to travel in Iran and negotiate a contract with Sanat Naft but a contract wasn't established due to visa problems.

Lately in January 2013 returned to India for the second time and signed a five-month contract until end of season to play for Pune FC and scored his first goal by opening the score in club's biggest win ever against United Sikkim. In the I-League match against Shillong Lajong F.C. on 25 March, he was brought in as a substitute for Pierre Djidjia Douhou on the 46th minute, and he equalised from a Jeje Lalpekhlua pass on the 51st minute, and then equalised again on the 59th minute from an Othallo Tabia cross to ensure a 2-2 draw.
