Kamara: A Dream Come True

Forward delighted to open his Blues account against Posh

3 September 2023

It was his first goal in senior football and saw Pompey complete a first-half turnaround at Fratton Park.

And Abu Kamara was delighted to open his account for the club against Peterborough after joining on loan from Norwich over the summer.

He capitalised on an awful sliced clearance from Romoney Crichlow to find the net, shortly after Colby Bishop had cancelled out Ricky-Jade Jones’ Posh opener.

Kamara then completed a day to remember by providing the cross for Regan Poole to wrap up a 3-1 League One victory.

The forward said: “It was my first professional goal, so when the ball went in the back of the net, it was a dream come true.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment and I was just happy that it came – an assist and the three points were the cherry on top.

"I feel like that’s a real confidence booster for me and hopefully I can get some more goals in the league and we can keep winning."

“There was a bit of combination play out on the right and I just thought: ‘Let me get into the area around the back post.’

“When the ball dropped I just thought that this was my chance and I was able to put it in the back of the net.

“The fans were going crazy and I dropped to my knee and pointed to the sky, then Christian Saydee tumbled over me.

“It was pretty funny, but I’m grateful for that moment and it’s something I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

“I feel like that’s a real confidence booster for me and hopefully I can get some more goals in the league and we can keep winning.

“There have been ups and downs so far, but that’s normal and I’m enjoying it here. Everyone’s made me welcome.”
