Augustine Williams & Buya Turay make official Indy & Legion debut

On Saturday, two Sierra Leonean strikers, Augustine Williams and Buya Turay, started for their respective clubs in the USL Championship.

Williams’s Indy Eleven suffered an opening defeat in the USL Championship on Saturday despite the inclusion of Augustine Williams in the starting eleven.

They lost 2-1 to Oakland Roots SC, their Western Conference opponent, in their only matchup for the 2024 season.

Indy continues its road swing next Saturday at Memphis 901 FC at 4 p.m. ET before returning home on March 23 for their home opener against Sacramento Republic FC.

In the meantime, Mohamed Buya Turay started for his new side, Birmingham Legion FC, who won 1-0 against Phoenix Rising at Rising Park, marking the start of the new USL Championship season.

Legion took the lead thanks to Diba Nwegbo’s strike, which deflected off an opponent before finding its way into the back of the net.

Striker Turay was substituted in the 62nd minute of the game due to an injury. Their next away game is scheduled on March 23 against Hartford Athletic.

Emmanuel Samadia was present as an unused substitute for Hartford Athletic in their recent game against El Paso Locomotive, which they won 1-0.

El Paso Locomotive FC had a disappointing start to their 2024 season as they lost 1-0 to Samadia’s Hartford Athletic on Saturday night at Southwest University Park.
