On Monday 31st July 2017, the Club announced the arrival of striker Aboubakar Kamara.
The Frenchman joined from SC Amiens for an undisclosed fee, on a four-year contract with a Club option for a further 12 months.
Kamara began his career at Monaco. After scoring regularly for the club’s B team, he made his Ligue 1 debut against Lyon in September 2014.
At the end of the season he joined Belgian Pro League side KV Kortrijk on a permanent transfer, before returning to France a year later with Ligue 2 outfit Amiens.
2016/17 was a highly productive one for the forward, as he helped Amiens win promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history.
The Ligue 2 campaign ended in remarkable fashion. Deep into stoppage time in the season finale, Amiens were drawing 1-1 at Reims after Kamara’s opener - his 11th league goal of the season - had been cancelled out, meaning they would finish sixth in the standings.
But a 96th minute winner earned them the three points and catapulted them up to second, ensuring automatic promotion.
