City on Nimley:

Alex was born in Liberia and comes from a sporting background, his father having been a promising college basketball player. After leaving his homeland at an early age, Alex spent time in both France and England before settling over here after his footballing talent caught the eye of several English clubs.

Snapped up by City, he thrived at the Academy and enjoyed a prolific 2008/09 season, knocking in over 30 goals as part of a formidable strike force alongside Robbie Mak. His form saw him make the move from Platt Lane over to Carrington and he adapted to reserve team football well, scoring 10 goals in league and cup competitions.

He made his debut  for the first team, becoming the 31st Academy player to have played first-team football for City, in the 6-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor and looked comfortable on a saturated pitch. He has also played for England at Under 20 level, scoring their only goal in the 2009 Under 20 World Cup.

In April 2010, Alex's progress was acknowledged by the club when he signed a new four-year contract.

Alex went on loan to Crystal Palace last season but injuries made it a frustrating period for the youngster.

He started off the 2013/14 season a high though by scoring in the Lancashire Senior Cup final against Manchester United.
