BYC No. 1 Goalie Spot: Sherman In, Urey Freaks Out

By Edwin Dolo in Monrovia

Nathaniel Sherman may have made a record breaking move to Barrack Young Controllers (BYC), but it appears his arrival is accompanied by some trepidations - the club’s first choice goal keeper Mulbah Urey seems unhappy with the deal.

Goal keeper Urey against Nimba Utd

 Our sports sources say Mulbah Urey is upset with the contract signed recently between BYC and the Lone Star number one goalie.

The former UMC Roots and Nimba United goal custodian penned a three-deal with the first division champions last Friday and was reportedly handed the number one position ahead of the club’s number one goalie Urey who is also his National Team contender.

Urey, who won the Liberia Football Association (LFA) First Division Best goal keeper award for the 2013 League season, is said to be in negotiation with some big name clubs in LPRC Oilers, NPA Anchors, and Fatu FC among others.

Our correspondent quotes sources as saying that the inspirational young goal keeper wants to keep his place in the National Team and is not ready to sit on the bench at the current status of his career.

Urey has proven to be one of the country’s best local goal keepers and has been outstanding for BYC in the last three seasons.

The Lone Star number #2 goalie was not even on bench in the Go Blue 2-0 thrashing at the hands of Ketrace FC on Sunday evening at the Blue Field.

BYC played that match with only one goal keeper. Nathaniel Sherman who is expected to be unveiled shortly is however expected to feature against newly promoted side NPA Anchors.

The experienced Liberian goal keeper last year signed for Nimba United from UMC Roots for a three-year undisclosed amount but could not stay to see his contract finished after the Mountaineers were relegated.

United were found guilty of feeding illegible player in the last campaign and face point deduction plus and additional fine of L$5000 Liberian Dollars).

Sherman has made 20 appearances for the Country at both junior and senior level of the Liberia National football team the Lone Star.

Meanwhile BYC bowed 2-0 to new comer Ketrace FC on Sunday at the Blue Field in Central Monrovia. Christopher Jackson fired Ketrace ahead with just five minutes into the match after overpowering the BYC defense.

Jackson created the second in the penalty box, as his clever attempt at goal was handed by Francis Jallabah thus causing a penalty.
