Despite being named as one of the retained players for 2017/18, Bostik Premier club Dulwich Hamlet have agreed to let Ibra Sekajja move on.

Born in Uganda, Sekajja attended school in Croydon where he was first noticed by a scout from Crystal Palace playing in a school match.

He made his professional debut for the Eagles in April 2011 away to Hull City where he scored a late 88th minute equaliser after coming on as a substitute – the goal secured Palace’s safety in the Championship

During the 2011/12 he spent short spells on loan at both Kettering Town and Bromley in order to gain first-team experience.

The following season he signed on loan for MK Dons, but despite glowing endorsement from Dons manager Karl Robinson, he made just one appearance.

In January 2013, Sekajja joined Barnet on a one-month loan and made a winning start to his Bees` career.

At the end of his loan at Barnet, Sekajja returned to Crystal Palace but failed to feature again in the first-team. He was eventually released by the club in May 2014.

After a successful two-week trial, Sekajja signed for Scottish Premiership club Inverness Caledonian Thistle in October 201.

He left Inverness in January 2015, at the end of his short-term contract, joining Scottish Championship club Livingston, where he made eleven appearances scoring twice.

Early last season Sekajja signed for Braintree Town of the National League but made just a handful of appearances before moving to Hemel Hempstead Town in late February 2015.

Sekajja, who has been capped by England at under-16 level, joined Hamlet and made fifty-one appearances last season, scoring 17 goals.

Now Sekajja has left Hamlet, according to manager Gavin Rose, who said: “Having received interest from several full-time clubs this week, Ibra Sekajja has asked for the opportunity to pursue those possibilities to further his career.

“Whilst the player will be a loss to us on the field we also take into consideration that football is a short career and have granted him his wish to try and gain a full-time contract.

“We would like to thank Ibra for his efforts over the course of last season”.
