Navy Boats to Football Boots
Chris Kamara was born on Christmas Day and raised in Middlesbrough. The call of the football field came at a young age, where he used to frequently attend matches alongside friend Steve Gibson who is now chairman of Middlesbrough. After joining the Navy at his father’s insistence at age 16, Chris Kamara joined the Royal Navy football team and began to sharpen his skills. His big chance came when he was scouted by Portsmouth manager Ian St. John who subsequently signed him and paid the Navy a buy-out fee. Making his mark on the field, his role as a tough midfielder found him playing for several teams including Leeds United who he helped win the Second Division title in 1989-90 before an injury slowed down his career trajectory. After a brief spell as a player-coach at Bradford City, Chris Kamara stepped off the pitch and was promoted to Assistant Manager in 1995.
