Seanla signed his first professional forms for Watford in June 2006 following a trial spell. He made his first professional appearance on 19 September 2006, coming on a substitute for Al Bangura for the second half of extra time in the League Cup second round victory over Accrington Stanley.
Seanla left Vicarage Road by mutual consent in February 2007 having made just one appearance for the first team. The following month he joined Conference North side Kettering Town after impressing for their reserve side, scoring four times in two games. He was released at the end of 2006-07 season following Kettering's failure to win promotion from the Conference North.
On 30 July 2007 he signed for Football League Two side Barnet on a free transfer after a successful trial. On 9 November 2007 he joined St Albans City on a month's loan. In January 2008, Seanla was transfer listed. He struggled when played out of position in midfield, and played only five times for the Bees. In March, he was loaned out to Wivenhoe Town. He failed to make an impression even at this level, however, and shortly after his loan spell was cancelled, he was released by Barnet.
On his debut for Ashford Town[clarification needed] he scored two goals in the second half in a 3-2 loss to Chipstead. He scored 5 goals in 8 games, but was unable to add to that tally due to injury, and joined Horsham in January 2009. Seanla's impressive strike rate for Horsham saw him join promotion hopefuls Boreham Wood in March 2010. He scored the only goal of a play-off semi-final against Aveley F.C. and helped contribute to a play-off final win against Kingstonian to seal promotion for the club.
