Chris "Kammy" Kamara (born 25 December 1957 in Middlesbrough) is a retired English footballer. He ended his playing career in 1995 and last managed a club in 1998. He is now a presenter and football analyst on Sky Sports.

Playing career

Kamara was born in Middlesbrough to a father of Sierra Leonean roots, and attended Nunthorpe School. After serving with the Royal Navy, Kamara joined Portsmouth in 1975, beginning a professional footballing career that saw him move between nine clubs, scoring 71 goals in 641 league appearances. The clubs he played for included Brentford, Luton Town and Leeds United - where he won the Division 2 Championship title.

Kamara was the first English player to be convicted of assault, after breaking player Jim Melrose's cheekbone with a punch straight after the final whistle in 1988.

Kamara spent short spells as manager of Stoke City and Bradford City, which saw him nearly relegated with the former but gaining promotion with the latter. He steered The Bantams to promotion in the 1995-96 season after winning 2–0 in the play-off final against Notts County.

Chris is a great friend of Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson whom he grew up with on Middlesbrough's Park End council estate. He and Gibson regularly attended matches together.
