Jefferson Louis Player Profile
Debut: Grays Athletic (A, 2-2), 31/12/2005
With leading goalscorer Anthony Elding leaving Broadhall Way in late 2005, Boro’ were fast to act in securing the services of Jefferson Louis on non-contract terms. The striker came with a slightly unfavourable reputation from fans of previous clubs he’d played for, however.
He won our fans over immediately with a goalscoring debut at Grays Athletic, though. As the season wore on, his performances started to wane; despite scoring six goals in 12 starts, there were doubts over his commitment to the cause.
Presumably having earned a deal towards the end of the 2005-6 season, Louis departed shortly after the season’s conclusion; his contract not being renewed by the club. Since then (and arguably before, to be fair), sticking at one club hasn’t really been Louis’ thing.
How’s this for a fact, though: in 2008, he was on the books for both sides who went down from League Two; Mansfield Town at the back end of the 2007-8 season and then Wrexham, who he joined in June that year.
