Kingstonian winger Youssef Bamba has dropped down a level to sign for Westfield, it was confirmed yesterday.
Bamba has made twenty two appearances for the K's this season, but most of them came from the bench, and he has departed in search of more game time. K's manager Hayden Bird explained yesterday:
"Westfield made contact yesterday afternoon. Although we had no intention of releasing Youssef, we respected his wish to play on a regular basis.
It's been a frustrating season for him and we understand that. Despite his frustration, whenever called upon he has always performed very well. Furthermore, his attitude in training and on match days has made him a pleasure to work with." Read more on the K's reaction here.
Bamba was in his second spell with the K's, but has spent a great deal of his career with Walton Casuals, and you will undoubtedly recall the part he played in their promotion season of 2017-18, when he scored nineteen goals in thirty appearances after moving from Merstham. His previous spell with Kingstonian ended in 2016-17, a season when he made twenty six appearances, scoring three times.
Westfield travel to South Park this afternoon.
