SIERRA Leone international Abdulai Baggie made his debut for Salisbury at the weekend, with the former Tranmere and Reading winger signed hours before the clash with Weston-super-Mare.

Starting the game, Baggie lasted 85 minutes before being replaced by Newport County loanee Lewys Twamley, with the Whites drawing 0-0 with their opponents from Somerset.

The winger had a short spell with the original Salisbury City, playing five games in 2012 before subsequently trialling – and signing – with Tranmere Rovers, then in League One.

Baggie has enjoyed somewhat of a nomadic career since his spell in the pro ranks, rotating through multiple south coast clubs.

His most notable spells in non-league include helping Salisbury’s rivals Poole Town to the National South, winning the Southern Premier League in 2015-16, before making over 100 appearances for Poole’s Dorset neighbours Weymouth.

With the Terras, Baggie shot up through the leagues, with the side earning back-to-back promotions from the Southern Premier League up to the topflight of non-league football.

Baggie then spent time with National League Eastleigh, before joining their Hampshire rivals Havant & Waterlooville at the start of the season.

After failing to break into Paul Doswell’s side, Baggie was allowed to leave, paving the way for his arrival at Salisbury.

He links up with former Weymouth teammates Calvin Brooks, Antonio Diaz and Josh Wakefield, as well as former Poole clubmate Marvin Brooks.
