Western Australia National Premier League side, Stirling Lions left-back, David Sesay (Pictured) has indicated his willingness to be part of the Sierra Leone men’s soccer team and defend the uniform of Sierra Leone internationally.

In a bid to realise his dream, the highly-rated agile and versatile defender is hoping to be contacted by the national team’s handlers in the near future.

Sesay, 25, who has represented Australia as a junior at the Singapore international Challenge Cup U-15s stated ‘It will be an honour to put on Sierra Leone colours.’

”I would love to represent Sierra Leone and it will be an honour, it’s just a matter of them showing an interest really,” Sesay told footballballsierraleone.net

“I was 8-years-old when I came to Australia and I’ve played for several clubs in the second division.

“I have represented Australia as a junior in Singapore, but my aspirations have always been to represent my country, Sierra Leone.”

”If Sierra Leone comes calling and showed that they wanted me, why not?”

The Perth-based soccer club currently competes in the National Premier Leagues Western Australia which is one grade lower than the Australian A-League.

They are presently third in the NPL standings four points adrift of league leaders Inglewood United.

David Sesay has been on the books of the Western Australian side as a 14-year-old boy before leaving to get more playing time by joining Bayswater.

“I joined Stirling Lions at the age of 14 but left to peruse first team football at Bayswater United, before rejoining this season. He explained.
