Jerome Okimo Player Profile
Debut: Hartlepool United (H, 1-0), 09/08/2014
Left back Jerome Okimo was handed his chance to make a name for himself in the Football League in 2014, after manager Graham Westley swooped to secure the player’s services from Wealdstone.
Okimo helped the Stones to the Ryman League Premier Division title in 2013-4 and, like Tom Pett, was rewarded for his role in that campaign with a Boro’ deal. He has also played for Chalfont St Peter.
Okimo was a consistent performer for Boro’, but never seemed assured of the starting berth at left back. With other lads such as Fraser Franks often preferred, the decision to release him in summer 2016 was unfortunate but not exactly a huge surprise.
