Jemal Johnson has joined Arlesey
   November 20, 2012 (1:17 PM) by Howie Michaels     Email This Post Email This Post

Jemal Johnson (not to be confused with fellow wanderer Jamel Johnson), moderately notable for his time with Blackburn Rovers a few years ago before beginning a journey through the lower tiers of England (with a brief trip to Bulgaria), has landed with a new club, Arlesey.

Whilst with the Dons Johnson made almost 100 appearances and scored a dozen times.

He spent the first half of 2011 with Bulgarian side Lokomotiv Sofia, before returning to England in the summer to sign for Southend United.

He was released by Southend in December 2011 and two months later signed with Blue Square Bet South side Dover Athletic.

He joined Conference Premier outfit Tamworth in September 2012.

Unfortunately, it appears that Arslesey lacks the indoor skiing and Iron Maiden members that Tamworth had.

Howie once received a death threat at a USA-Brazil friendly. He still believes in Fred Adu. He plays forward in coed rec, although not well.

    Wow If I was Jemal I would have used an alias or changed my name. I don’t think that I will be tracking Jemal any longer.

    This is “Non League Premier”(or eighth level), Pro / Semi-Pro, which in turn is split into 3 division (North,South,Isthmian) My father was a coach for an Isthmian League Team/I grew up with this league.
    There is only one level of semi-pro (“Non League Division 1”) beneath this. Then it is considered 100% Amateur/Sunday/Pub league etc.

    Yeah, from what I could gather this is basically where Jay Demerit started.

  3. David says:

    Jay DeMerit is a perfect example of how the lower leagues are supposed to work, finding talent and pushing up through the lower leagues to the Pro’s) Just for info: Demerit was earning $40 a week at Southal.

    Unfortunately it has also become the graveyard for ex-pro’s who just can’t hang it up.
