Kelvin Bossman returns to Cambridge City
Striker Kelvin Bossman has returned to Southern Premier League side Cambridge City on a game-by-game basis from Conference South outfit Hayes & Yeading United.
Bossman was a popular figure with the Hayes faithful but he has decided to return to the Lilywhites for a second spell – where he made four impressive appearances earlier this season – for personal reasons.
Born in Ghana, Kelvin moved to the United Kingdom at the age of nine with his parents. His football talent was spotted when he signed for the Reading academy, and during this time, Kelvin enjoyed loan spells with Basingstoke Town and Woking before deciding to make the move to Holland to sign for topflight Dutch side FC Groningen in 2009. A loan spell at SC Cambuur saw Kelvin make his league debut in Holland, before he joined Dutch Second Division side Helmond Sport and scored his first professional goal with a winning strike against Go Ahead Eagles in August 2011. In 2007, Kelvin also featured in the Under-17 FIFA World Cup™ in South Korea.
Since leaving Holland after being homesick and deciding to return to England to pursue his career, Kelvin endured a difficult year, having been unable to find a club in England after being injured in pre-season. However, after regaining fitness, Kelvin signed for Conference South club Havant & Waterlooville in February 2013, making 8 appearances.
He was offered a new contract, but declined the offer in May 2013 and, after a brief spell at Cambridge City, he signed for Conference South side Hayes & Yeading United, whom he helped to win their opening three matches following his arrival.
He has now decided to return to Cambridge City after 9 appearances and 2 goals for Hayes & Yeading United.
