Yado Mambo Given No 5 Shirt After Signing For Non-league Wealdstone


FOOTBALL fans’ dreams have come true after defender Yado Mambo signed for Wealdstone – and was handed the No 5 shirt.

The player has come out of retirement to put pen to paper for the National League Two South side – but more importantly it means a number one hit can boom out from the stands.

Last season while playing for Ebbsfleet, there were calls for the 26-year-old to be given the No 5 in reference to the chart-topping 1990s song Mambo Number 5, by Lou Bega.

But unfortunately that number was already taken by fellow centre-half Dave Winfield, and the club were forced to photoshop a version to pacify the masses.

But his new club Wealdstone have caved into pressure – and provided one of this summer’s heartwarming stories to boot.

Mambo’s new manager Bobby Wilkinson told the National League website: “We’ve decided to do it!”
