Curtis Osano – Wimbledon, UK

Born in Nakuru, Kenya, Curtis Osano moved to England at the age of nine, when his father joined the British army. He started playing football at the age of 13, as a student at Collingwood College in Camberley. Around this time he also became involved in athletics, representing Surrey in the English Schools Championships, winning silver in the triple jump. He eventually rose through the ranks at Reading as a defender under the guidance of current Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and was involved with the English youth set-up, though failed to make a league appearance for the Royals.

Osano joined Rushden & Diamonds for the 2007–08 season for work experience then officially joined Rushden on a two-year contract in July 2008 following his release by Reading. He scored his first career goal in a game against Altrincham in November 2008.

Osano subsequently signed a six month contract on 29 July 2011 after his performances in two pre-season games. Luton Town extended his contract till the end of the season after a strong showing. Manager Gary Brabin said of Osano “Curtis has been excellent for us. He’s a great athlete, has bags of enthusiasm, is a hard-worker and loves to get forward.”

On 28 May 2012, Osano left Luton to sign for League Two side AFC Wimbledon, where he once again linked up with former team-mate Will Antwi. Osano had an unfortunate start to the 2012-13 campaign when he picked up an ankle injury that prevented him from taking part in the first 8 games of the season. He finally made his debut for AFC Wimbledon as a late substitution in a 2-1 loss against Accrington Stanley on 29 September 2012.
