New Future for Cadamarteri
A super sub performance from Danny Cadamarteri against Fulham, when he created one goal and scoring the other, has seen the 27 year old become a hit with the Leicester crowd. Some fans might have been a little worried about the signing of Cadamarteri after he had served a 6 month ban for taking banned substances.
Cadamarteri started his career off at Everton where he broke into the team as a 17 year old. He played at Everton for 7 seasons and scored 15 goals in 110 appearances before he moved to Bradford in 2002 in a free transfer.
He stayed at his home town club for 2 seasons and in 52 league games he managed to score 5 goals. He had brief spells at Leeds and Sheffield United before he rejoined Bradford in 2005.
Whilst at Bradford Cadamarteri tested positive for a banned substance and was suspended from the game for 6 months. Bradford terminated his contract and it seemed that Cadamarteri would end up on the football scrap heap.
Once he had served his ban he struggled to attract any interest from league clubs and he was going to played a game for Grays Athletic in December 2006. However Kelly soon stepped in and saw the potential that Cadamarteri had to offer. He gave the striker a trial period at the club and Cadamarteri impressed Kelly enough to get a contract until the end of the season.
Cadamarteri started to repay the belief Kelly has shown in him during the game against Fulham and his goal celebrations show that he is going to make the most of this second chance. Obviously performing well in one game is not going to be enough for Cadamarteri to put his career back on track, but it`s a good start.
