Playing Career


Club(s)
As a boy, Zamora played for the east London club, Senrab FC, alongside John Terry, Paul Konchesky, Ledley King and Jlloyd Samuel. Was a part of the West Ham United FC Academy before being released in 1999. Joined Bristol Rovers FC as a trainee in August 1999, before being loaned out to Bath City FC in January 2000, where he scored seven in five league outings, and then Brighton & Hove Albion FC in February 2000 for a three-month loan stint. Such was the success of his loan move that Zamora, for £100,000, moved to the south coast on 10 August 2000. Zamora joined Tottenham Hotspur FC in July 2003 for £1.5 million. Less than six months later, on 3 February 2004, Zamora joined West Ham United FC in a deal that saw Jermain Defoe go the opposite way. Then, on 16 July 2008, Zamora, alongside John Paintsil, joined Fulham FC in a joint £6.3 million fee, before a transfer to Queen's Park Rangers FC on 31 January 2012. On 3 August 2015, Zamora returned to Brighton & Hove Albion FC for a year, when he was released when his contract expired.
