We are delighted to announce that another hugely promising player has chosen to be represented by ACHIEVE as England C international and Hampton and Richmond Borough striker Nicke Kabamba has signed as the agency’s latest client.
ACHIEVE has a proud history of discovering non-league talent and the likes of Matty Taylor, Chris Stokes, Adam Marriott, Jarrett Rivers, Greg Luer, Nathan Buddle and Jonny Margetts to name but a few have all gone on to make the moves from non-league football into the Football League under ACHIEVE’s guidance.
23-year-old striker Kabamba has been a revelation for National League South outfit Hampton and Richmond Borough, earning the club’s ‘Supporters’ Player of the Season’ accolade for the last campaign and he has scored 8 goals so far this season after signing from Hemel Hempstead Town in August 2015.
Standing at 6 foot 3”, Kabamba’s form and strike partnership with Jamal Lowe has seen the front pair both called up to manager Paul Fairclough’s contingency England C national side for their upcoming fixture against Estonia on November 15th.
Kabamba began his career with Uxbridge where he scored 28 goals in 78 appearances from 2011 to 2013 before making the move to Burnham. After scoring goals regularly again for Burnham, he joined Hemel Hempstead Town in 2014, using his pace and power to good effect, before joining Hampton and Richmond Borough, initially on loan, in August 2015. He was the club’s leading goal scorer last season, the 2015-16 campaign, firing 18 goals as the club won the Ryman Premier League title.
Speaking recently, Hampton manager Alan Dowson said of Kabamba and his strike partner Lowe: “Nicke and Jamal have been fantastic for us this year.
“If they keep playing as they have, I’m telling you now that they will be gone before Christmas and they will go for big money.”
ACHIEVE Director Dave Garley said: “Nicke is an exceptionally talented striker with a big future in the game and we are delighted that he has chosen ACHIEVE to be his representatives.
“There were a number of agencies vying to represent Nicke but he felt that our experience in moving players into full-time football was a key factor in his decision to choose us.
“We have a reputation in the industry for helping semi-professional players to make the transition into the Football League and Premier League and we feel that Nicke has every chance of following in the footsteps of some of our clients who have made that journey.
“We are excited to work with Nicke and look forward to assisting him for what we firmly believe will be, with continued hard work, a successful career.”
