Alusine Bangura (born 3 March 1991) is a Sierra Leonean footballer forward who playes for FC Columbus in the NPSL.[4] Previously, he has targeted a call-up to the Sierra Leone national football team.[3]

Career[edit | edit source]

Playing for Mighty Blackpool F.C. in his native Sierra Leone, Bangura sealed a move to W Connection of the TT Pro League after trialing in 2009 on the recommendation of former W Connection player Charlie Wright.[5] They placed him in their reserve squad,[5] sometimes calling him up to line up for the first team. Less than a month after his transfer there, Bangura recorded a hat-trick in an 8-0 beating of Police FC in the domestic league.[6] Meanwhile, the Sierra Leonean was incriminated with sexually assaulting a teenager and was denied bail.[7] In addition, the judge was perturbed by the fact that his passport never showed that he had an extension to stay in Trinidad and Tobago.[7] Two weeks later, Bangura was released on charge after the witness refused to make a deposition or testify in court and was never officially vindicated of his crime.[8]

Over the course of 2015, the footballer trained with D.C. United Academy before entering the Maryland International Soccer Academy;[3]

Back in January 2016, Bangura joined IFK Maryland of the American Soccer League,[9] donning the number 9 and scoring two goals.[1]
