Biographical Text

Okezie Ibe began his career at Arsenal in their youth academy, before having a short spell with A.F.C. Bournemouth.
His first of several non-league clubs were Hampton and Richmond, going on to play for Aylesbury United and Leatherhead in 2003. His return of 27 goals in 2003-04 at Staines brought him to the notice of Yeovil Town, for whom he signed in July 2004. Having made only three appearances for the Glovers, he spent time on loan at Tiverton Town and Exeter City, signing for the Grecians in December 2004 and making his debut against Hereford United in a Conference fixture.

He subsequently joined Chelmsford City and finished the 2007-08 season there as top scorer. He was on trial at Brentford in the 2008 close season and also pursued by AFC Wimbledon, before he joined Ebbsfleet United in August 2008, going on to score five goals in 26 appearances.
