Quest for CL Football: Sholee Quiah moves to United
By Boy Dolo
From surplus for requirement at LISCR to leader at ELWA United and nucleus for Invincible Eleven (IE) Football Club, the rising star now found himself on the ladder to the Confederation African Football (CAF) Champions League.
At long last Nimba United have confirmed the signing of Sholee Deco Quaye on a one -season long deal from Invincible Eleven (IE).
United in their quest to bolster their quad ahead of their February CAF Champions League engagement and desire to defend their title on the local scene also brought on board two Sierra Leoneans plus a host of other local contingent for the once in a life time showpiece.
The Yellow Boys (IE) failure to retain their reputation on the local scene saw them demoted to non-division as a result of their inability to meet the CAF Club License process requirements, as such star like Quaye were loaned.
The promising young winger joined ELWA United on loan from LISCR FC where he found playing time difficult in 2011 and made his stay permanent in 2012 and his glittering show with the Faith-based Club caught the attention of IE. The Sunshine Yellow Boys moved in quickly to secure the player and he delivered the needed results which saw him gained promotion to the U23 National Team.
Quaye who is one of the top-rated young players in the Country is realizing this dream of playing at the top level, and has described the move to United as a giant step in his dream of playing at the international level.
Nimba United have at the same time announced the signing of Sierra Leonean duos Larmin Janneh and Foday Suma.
United have been in search of players with height for their defense and midfield, and the acquiring of defender Janneh and defensive midfielder Suma could solved some of their lapses, after the departure of skipper Kermue Kamara to Barrack Young Controller and a search of greener pasture by playmaker Sunnyboy Dolo.
The Mountaineers also signed Eratus Wee from BYCII, Jeremiah Seckie from FC Fassell as well as Peter Sie from Wantanga FC.
County Meet duos Prince Wilson and Mustapha Lomell who were exceptional for Nimba County in the just ended National County Sports Meet are among the list of players.
United are paired alongside Cameroonian giant Union Dula for the preliminary rounds of the competition and the first leg will come alive at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) on the weekend of February 13-16.
