Strong comeback for Kenyan winger in Norway
Kenyan international and attacker Christian Bwamy returned to Norway Division Two League side Follo FK lineup in July 2017 after almost two years on the sidelines making his second debut against Nybergsund.
This was his second time at the light blues with the club exuding confidence that he would perform even better and contribute beyond this season. Bwamy has made good his promise and managed to score in two of the last four outings for the club against Finnsnes, Brumunddal, Asker and Vålerenga II.
The MYSA product also seem to have claimed a regular starting place in the team after his return to the second division side following his impressive moments in training during the summer break after which he was handed a amateur contract.
Bwamy first joined Follo FK a decade ago though at the end of 2007 courtesy of a collaboration between Drømmeorp High School where he had secured a football scholarship stemming from the school’s link with former Kenyan Premier League champions Mathare United. He was among two players selected to travel to Norway.
The Harambee Stars forward who last featured for the Kenyan team in 2015 enjoyed three good seasons ending in cup finals in 2010. He then proceeded to another Division Two side Valdres in 2011 before moving on to Fram Larvik.
He however returned to Follo in the 2014 and 2015 seasons but left after the club faced relegation from the OBOS league having made 20 appearances that season, clocking 1282 minutes. Christian Bwamy has played alongside other Kenyans Wycliffe Juma (FK Mjolner), Arnold Origi, John Muiruri (FK Moss), and Paul Oyuga (Algard) in the Norway Leagues.
Bwamy has four caps for the National team Harambee Stars, having featured last in the 2015 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Ethiopia.
