Affectionately known as “Mali”, 16-year-old Jamali Morgan left this world before he was given the opportunity to fully display his full potential.
Jamali joined the Whitehall Football Academy on Thursday, December 1, 2022 and he started to train with the Academy’s under-17 team. It was not long before the coaches there recognised that Mali was a talented young man who understood the game of football and with that, he had the skills and speed needed for the game.
On Saturday, February 4, 2023, Mali played his first practice match for the Academy and he played on both the right and left sides as a forward against Kickstart Rush, sadly that turned out to be his only game for the Academy. On, Wednesday, February 15, he turned up with his dad, for training and that unfortunately was the last time that Mali trained with the team.
