Ibra Sekajja, whose 2011 goal at Hull City kept Crystal Palace in the Championship, has become the latest recruit to Ryman League Premier Division club Dulwich Hamlet`s squad

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

He made his professional debut for the Eagles in April 2011 away to Hull where he scored a late 88th minute equaliser after coming on as a substitute. The goal secured Palace’s safety in the Championship, and Sekajja celebrating with a triple backflip!

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 there.

In10th January 2013, he joined Barnet on a one-month loan.

Sekajja returned to Palace but failed to feature again in the first-team and 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.

Sekajja 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 Vanarama National League side Braintree Town but made just a handful of appearances before moving to Hemel Hempstead Town in late February of this year.

Sekajja has been capped by England at under-16 level, but in August 2013, he was called up to the Uganda squad for a friendly against Egypt. He did not play as he had yet to receive his Ugandan passport.
