Career[edit]

Francis-Angol was signed by the Motherwell club in July 2011 after he started his career playing for the Tottenham Hotspur Reserves.[4] He was a regular for the Motherwell Under 19's during 2011–12, but did not make a first team appearance. His performances for the Under 19's resulted in him being awarded with a new contract.[5]

He made his debut for the first-team as a substitute in a 3–0 defeat against Panathinaikos in the UEFA Champions League Third qualifying round on 8 August 2012.[6]

On 18 January 2013, Francis-Angol signed a new contract with Motherwell, keeping him at Fir Park until Summer 2015.[7] He scored his first goal for the club in a 5–1 win over Partick Thistle on 29 December 2013.[8]

On 2 June 2015, Motherwell announced that Francis-Angol was amongst the players leaving the club, with his contract having expired.[9]

On 2 October 2015, Francis-Angol signed for Kidderminster Harriers on a short-term deal until January 2016.[10] Francis-Angol scored on his first start for the club in a 1–1 home draw against Boreham Wood.

International career[edit]

On 31 August 2012, London-born Francis-Angol was given a call-up to the Antigua and Barbuda squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Guatemala[3] and made his international debut by starting in the 3–1 loss.[11] He qualifies due to his mother being from the country.[3]
