Former Sierra Leone captain Ibrahim Kargbo has signed for Vanarama National League club Welling United.

Thirty-three-year-old Kargbo’s former clubs are Old Edwardians FC, Feyenoord Rotterdam, RWD Molenbeek, Sporting Charleroi, Malatyaspor, RWDM Brussels and Willem II.

Ex-Sierra Leonean skipper Kargbo was among fifteen players and officials at Willem who were suspended over allegations of match-fixing, which the player denied.

The versatile defender played more than 100 matches for the Dutch side before moving to FC Baku when his contract in August 2013 expired, he then re-joined his former team RWDM Brussels but decided to terminate his contract a month later.

He signed for Portugese second division side Atletico Clube de Portugal in 2014 on a one-year deal with the option of a second.

But Kargbo was expected to sign for English club Swindon Town after his successful trial in July 2014 but the deal collapsed after he was suspended by the Sierra Leone Sport Ministry and Sierra Leone Football Association for the alleged match-fixing incident.

He subsequently joined Ryman League Division One North side Barkingside and then Thamesmead Town.

Karkbo goes straight into the squad for tomorrow’s vital game against Aldershot Town at Park View Road.
