French forward Hisham Kasimu has joined league two side Sutton United.
Hisham’s astronomical rise to professional football delights Alhaji Yahya Gibrine, a former team manager of Ghanaian giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
Gibrine, the grandfather of Hisham is hoping his boy can hit the ground running and make a bigger step to the top tier of Engish football.
The forward joins the league two side from Farnborough FC who play in the sixth tier of English football.
Hisham, 25, signs his first professional contract after impressing Sutton united manager Matt Gray.
Gray was delighted to finally get his man and admitted he has long admired the forward who impressed during his side’s FA cup clash against Farnborough.
”We were aware of Hisham before he played well against us in November, and Terry Bullivant and I have watched him again since then and have been impressed with him”. Matt said upon completing a deal for the forward.
”We’re very grateful to Spencer Day and Farnborough for their help with the deal, and as part of the arrangement we will play them in a pre-season friendly next season and look forward to taking a strong squad there.” He added.
Hisham scored a staggering 30 goals to take AFC Totton on the brink of qualifying for the southern league division one.
He continued his fine form with Farnborough where he scored 12 goals mid way through to the season to earn his deserved move to Sutton United.
Sutton United currently sit 11th on the league two table and hope the addition of the forward can secure them a play-off spot.
