Very late last night in a London Hotel Ibra Sekajja agreed to join the ‘Boro from Havant & Waterlooville for the rest of the season. Secretary Craig Stainton signing Ibra’s transfer form and registration documents.
Born in Uganda, he attended secondary school at Ashburton Community School from 2004 to 2009.
Ibra was first noticed by a scout from Crystal Palace a Premier League club for his footballing talent whilst playing during a match at Elmwood Primary School. His pace, technical skill, dribbling, height and striking were noticed at the age of 10.
Sekajja made his professional debut for Crystal Palace on 30 April 2011, in a fixture at Hull City. He scored a late 88th-minute equaliser with his first touch. Sekajja had dominated the pitch in the last few vital minutes of the match, ensuring a draw against Hull which secured Palace's safety in the Championship. He celebrated with a triple backflip.
He was loaned to Kettering Town and Bromley midway through the 2011–12 season, to gain first team experience.
Milton Keynes Dons then signed Sekajja on loan on 7 November 2012. Manager Karl Robinson said of the move, "He's exactly what we need in the team at the moment – he is young, fearless and fast."On 24 November 2012 he made his only appearance for the side, coming on as an 84th-minute substitute for Dean Bowditch in a 5–1 win against Colchester United
On 10 January 2013, Sekajja joined Barnet on a one-month loan. He made a winning start to his Barnet career, playing the whole game in an away 2–0 win against Rotherham United, on 12 January 2013.Following his "impressive" debut, manager Edgar Davids said "I expect that he is going to be a great asset for the team. I hope he develops himself in the line that I think he can and he can become an important player for Barnet."
At the end of his loan at Barnet, Sekajja returned to Crystal Palace but failed to feature again in the first team. He was eventually released by the club in May 2014.
After a successful two-week trial, Sekajja signed for Scottish Premiership club Inverness CT in October 2014.He made his debut for the team later that month, coming on as a substitute against St Mirren. Sekajja left Inverness in January 2015, at the end of his short-term contract.
