Barrack Young Controller continues to build their squad ahead of the new season with the additional signing on of former Watanga forward Kelvin Potis.

BYC over the weekend disclosed that the former Watanga forward signed a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee with the option of further extending his contract based on performance.

Potis now makes it 13 new players that have joined BYC. Recently prior to the climax of last league season, the 19-year-old put up a splendid performance for the World Wide Mission School after his institution was crowned champion of the National High School Championship.

Potis won the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and highest goal scorer awards in the tournament.

Though his former club Watanga struggled in the 2016/2017 league season, Potis performed well from the flanks, threatening opponents including BYC at the Blue field.

Potis was last season called by national team head coach James Debbah for the African Nations Championship and made his debut against Mauritania. The 19-year-old started the match and made several attempts to register his first goal for the national team, but was later substituted. Lone Star lost 2-0.

Following the signing of his two-year contract, Potis, according to BYC official page said, “This was not an easy decision for me, but I am happily joining the best club in Liberia. It is a dream come true for me, I want to win games, trophies, and develop as a footballer.”

In another transfer development, double champions LISCR FC completed the signing of central defender Terry Kamara from BYC on a three-year deal.

The ‘Shipping Boys’ completed the deal on Friday after meeting the LD $ 225,000 buy-out clause.

Defender Kamara, who spent two years at the Blue Field, won the best defender and Co-rookie of the year awards in 2016 after the ‘Go Blue Boys’ won the first division championship. Kamara has reunited with his former teammate Mark Paye who also joined the double champions earlier during the transfer window.

The defender’s former club, BYC have however lauded him for his time at the club. “We want to extend our appreciation to Kemoh Kamara for his invaluable services rendered our club during his 2 years of service,” BYC said via their official facebook page.
