Bamboutos FC of Mbouda forward, Mangolo Aime Gerard created double records when he came off the bench to score his club’s lone goal in the 1 nil win against Stade Renard of Melong on Sunday in Limbe.
The goal meant the striker became the oldest player to score in this season’s championship, at the age 34 years 234 days.
Born on the 27th April 1985,Mangolo has not looked back since he made his top flight debut for legendary Cameroon League One side, Canon Yaounde in 2004.
He has gone on to represent five Cameroon clubs in the league one championship and scored for all which is another record. He shares the record with only one active player, Ashu Tambe Clevis of UMS of Loum. Both goal getters have scored for five division one clubs in Cameroon.
Mangolo scored goals for Astres and played the final of the cup of Cameroon in 2008. He finally got the competitions winners medal in 2013 with YOSA Sports Academy of Bamenda.
In a 15 year old career which has seen him win a league title in Algeria in 2011 with ASO Chlet, Mangolo has been a goal scorer for Canon, Astres, YOSA, Cotonsport and Bamboutos FC plus the above mentioned Cameroonian clubs in League 1.
Therefore Bamboutos FC is the fifth Cameroon League 1 side he has scored for.
In all, the former Under 17 and Under 23 International has played for 10 clubs in Cameroon and scored for all 10 clubs amongst which is Avion Academy, Leopards of Douala, Bonaberi FC.
He won the golden boots with Leopards Sportive in the 2006 Littoral Regional Championship. The forward repeated the trick in 2018 as the Cameroon league 2 topscorer with 20 goals for Avion Academy.
15 years down the line, he remains the reliable scorer he has been through out his career.
Bamboutos FC of Mbouda will need more goals from the forward this season.
