Chris Kamara Early Life and Career
Christopher Kamara was born on the 25th of December, 1957, in Middlesbrough, North Riding of Yorkshire.
Through his father, he was eligible to play for Sierra Leone and was called up to play in the 1994 African Cup of Nations, though he declined the offer.
His father was a heavy gambler, leaving his mother Irene to sometimes plead for money from neighbors in order to provide food for Chris and his brother George and sister Maria.
Kamara’s football career began when he was seen playing for the Navy by Portsmouth manager Ian St John, who contracted him on apprentice wages in November 1974 after accepting to pay the Navy a £200 buy-out fee.
He made his first-team debut in August 1975 in a 2–0 defeat by Luton Town, winning his chance after Mick Mellows was struck down with a knee injury. The next match he scored his first senior goal in a 4–1 loss to Bolton Wanderers after being set up by Bobby McGuinness.
Chris went on to play regular football at Fratton Park in the 1975–76 season as “Pompey” were relegated out of the Second Division in the last place.
He was signed again to Portsmouth by Frank Burrows, who had formerly coached Kamara at Swindon. However, in October 1981 he was again transferred after Brentford manager Fred Callaghan agreed to a swap deal with David Crown going the other way.
In 1992, Kamara returned to the Premier League after joining Dave Bassett’s Sheffield United on loan. Despite failing to nail down a regular first-team place in the 1992–93 season he made the move from Kenilworth Road to Bramall Lane permanent.
