Kamara played 44 times for Woodley in the Hellenic League last season and was a key part of their battle against relegation, earning plaudits from opposing teams to lift the leagues player of the season trophy.

Speaking exclusively to Football in Bracknell in June, Kamara said of his award: “Being honest I wasn’t aware I was in the running. Roger text me in the evening saying that I was up for the award, which I would have been more than happy with given our position and how well Thatcham and Bracknell have done this year. But to win it was a complete surprise. I’m really pleased.”
