Tackling The Champions League Remains Dream For Jamaican Defender

Author: Neil-Monticelli Harley-Rüdd

Damion Lowe, a stalwart in the heart of Jamaica’s defence, has yet to sign for a new club following May’s amicable agreement to leave Norwegian highfliers IK Start.

The son of former Reggae Boyz favourite Onandi Lowe, who joined the Scandinavian club three years ago from UCL outfit Tampa Bay Rowdies in the United States, parted from IK Start with seven months remaining on his contract.

But the ex-Harbour View FC star, who made 50 appearances for IK Start and bagged four goals, will miss out on Champions League next season with his former club IK Start. Now based in Miami, the 27-year-old is heavily linked with a return to another side in Norway although there’s believed to be interest from teams in Dubai, Greece, Germany, Qatar, Russia and Turkey.


However, having enjoyed successful stints in North America with Minnesota United, Seattle Sounders and Tampa Bay Rowdies, the free agent could turn his back on a return to Europe in order to be closer to his family.

Lowe, who’s helped the Boyz shore up their leaky defence under coach Theodore Whitmore over the past few years, played a major role in helping IK Start win promotion to the top flight in the 2018-19 season.

He had originally aimed, having ended his isolated training with the Norwegian outfit on 27 April, to have secured his future last month. His dreams of tackling the Champions League with a new club will no doubt be his priority following his disappointment of missing out with IK Start.
