April 13, 2021 - United Soccer League One (USL1) - North Carolina FC News Release

Cary, NC - NCFC has secured another promising young addition to its squad by adding midfielder Jay Tee Kamara (full name John Thomas Kamara) on loan from Louisville City FC pending league and federation approval. The 18-year-old Sierra Leone native brings a spark to North Carolina FC ahead of the 2021 season.

"Jay Tee is an exciting young player that will add further attacking quality to our group," said Head Coach John Bradford. "He is extremely dangerous off the dribble, sees the game well, and I believe will have a strong impact in our league. He's another perfect fit for our club's continued dedication to developing young players, and I'm excited for NCFC to play a role in his overall pathway. We're also pleased to continue our great relationship with Louisville City FC, a like-minded organization for youth development. I want to thank Louisville City FC Head Coach John Hackworth, and his staff, for thinking of NCFC to provide this opportunity for Jay Tee and his progression."

Kamara, who featured for the Sierra Leone U-20 national team, is a recent graduate of the highly touted Monteverde Academy in Florida, which has seen 10 grads sign professional contracts since 2013.

The addition of the left-footed Kamara brings the NCFC roster near completion as preseason matches are underway. Kamara joins an NCFC roster that now includes Nazmi Albadawi, Luis Arriaga, Josh Coan, Malyk Hamilton, Robert Kristo, Malick Mbaye, Pecka, Peter Pearson, Shermaine Martina, Selmir Miscic, Jake McGuire, Nelson Flores, Nelson Martinez, Will Buete, Curtis DeLeon, Britton Fischer, Cole Frame, Nicholas Holliday, Drew Kerr, Marvin Mariche, Nata Martinez, Collin McCamy, Aaron Messer, Parker O'Ferral, Yekeson Subah, Samuel Terranova, Rohit Thakur, and Caden Tolentino.
