Nicke Kabamba (born 1 February 1993) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Havant and Waterlooville.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Kabamba was a sprinter when young, but opted to play football instead.[5] He joined Uxbridge in 2011 after scoring 13 goals for Hayes & Yeading United's under-18 team.[6] He impressed enough with the reserve squad to grant a debut on 22 November in a Southern League Cup 3–1 defeat at Northwood.[7]

Kabamba left Uxbridge in October 2013 and signed for A.F.C. Hayes.[5] After a goalscoring debut against North Greenford United,[8] he only scored one further goal for the club, in a 2–1 away loss against Potters Bar Town,[9] before leaving in November. He subsequently moved to Burnham before the window break, and started to score in a regular basis.

On 30 September 2014 Kabamba scored five goals in a game including a hat-trick in the opening 10 minutes as Burnham beat Bideford 5–1 in the Southern League.[10] On 5 December 2014, he was loaned to Hemel Hempstead Town until the end of the season.[11]

Hampton & Richmond Borough[edit]

In August 2015, Kabamba signed for Hampton & Richmond Borough on loan, later making the move permanent in January 2016.[12][13] He became the club's top scorer in the 2015–16 season with 18 goals, as it achieved promotion to National League South.

Portsmouth[edit]

On 18 January 2017, Kabamba signed an 18-month contract with League Two club Portsmouth with the option of a 12-month extension.[14] He made his debut for the club on 18 March, replacing Noel Hunt in a 3–0 away defeat to Stevenage.[15]

On 31 August 2017, Kabamba signed for Colchester United until January 2018, becoming the fifth player to enter Colchester on deadline day.[16] He made his Colchester debut on 9 September in their 3–1 win against Crawley Town.[17] After failing to score in ten appearances for Colchester, he returned to his parent club on 14 December.[18]

On 5 January 2018, Kabamba joined National League side Aldershot Town on loan for the remainder of the campaign.[19] On 9 May, Portsmouth announced that his contract, which would expire on 30 June, would not be renewed.[20][21]

Havant and Waterlooville[edit]

On 14 June 2018, Kabamba signed for National League newcomers Havant and Waterlooville.
