Countdown to Campbelltown: Kwabena Appiah-Kubi

Countdown to Campbelltown: Kwabena Appiah-Kubi

A young Kwabena Appiah-Kubi wasn’t fazed when his neighbour took him to play football for the very first time.

A young Kwabena Appiah-Kubi wasn-t fazed when his neighbour took him to play football for the very first time.

The Parramatta City junior registered for the club after originally being told he was going to be kicking the ball around – just for fun.

“I had never played football before so it was a weird experience,” Appiah-Kubi said.

The unknown didn-t trouble the Wanderers winger.

“I wasn-t nervous because I had no idea what I was doing at the time.”

The skills for becoming a professional footballer were learnt early for Appiah-Kubi – scoring his first goal for Parramatta in stunning fashion.

“We were in battle of relegation and we had to either draw or win that game to stay up,” he said.

“I scored the winning goal in the final minute off a big toe punt.

“Well that-s how I remember it!”

Success rolled on for Appiah-Kubi – his greatest achievement at a junior level would be his three consecutive Grand Final appearances.

The Western Sydney flyer acknowledges it takes strong commitment to play in the Hyundai A-League but always remembers the path he has taken.

“The junior game is about having fun and enjoying yourself while you learn,” he said.

“You get to score a lot of goals as well!”

The Wanderers next play Newcastle Jets at Campbelltown Stadium on Saturday night at 7.45pm.
