Football Is In The Dembele Family

30 May 2017

Town's latest recruit, Siriki Dembele comes from a football mad family - and his brother Karamoko (pictured above) famously made his debut for Celtic's Under 20's side in October at the tender age of just 13.  His younger, younger brother Hassan is also at the Celtic Academy and plays in their Under 9's side.

Siriki himself made his way into professional football by way of the Nike Academy, where he was just one of two English players selected for the St George's Park outfit.

Speaking after arriving at Blundell Park, Siriki said: "My little brother Karamoko Dembele has done really well, and my younger brother Hassan is at the Celtic Academy too. He's doing really well as well. A lot of people have said that me and Karamoko are the same but it's been different for me because I haven't had much of a youth career.

"This is why this is perfect for me at Grimsby, I am in the Football League, playing first team, and I really hope to show everyone what I can do.

"That's why I am excited for the season to start," he added.
