Adelaide United signs teenage sensation Teeboy Kamara

Official release from Adelaide United

Adelaide United supporters can expect to see a lot more of exciting youngster Teeboy Kamara after he signed a three year deal with the club.

Less than a week after Teeboy's historic debut appearance in the Hyundai A-League where he became the youngest player to take the field in the competition, the Reds quickly moved to secure the 15-year old attacking midfielder on a senior contract.

Due to his age and the contractual conditions of Football Federation Australia (FFA), Teeboy's contract will only officially begin on 18 May 2012, the day he turns 16.

"According to FFA regulations a professional contract cannot start until the player is at a school leaving age of the state in which he resides," Adelaide United Football Director Michael Petrillo explained.

"In South Australia the school leaving age when the student can take up employment or further study is 16. In the meantime he will be a National Youth League contracted player before he makes the transition to a senior contract on May 18 next year."
