You've probably never heard of this Dominican player who has spent his entire career playing in England. Maybe it is because the achievement of his career was playing for Oxford United or Mansfield Town. What's the real story behind this semi-pro veteran?

Glory was never meant for Louis, who began his first football steps in a local club Risborough Rangers. By the end of 20th century, a transfer for the striker was already arranged. He moved to Thame United shortly thereafter, but was convicted of dangerous driving in 2001 and sentenced to a year's imprisonment. He was released from Woodhill Prison nearly six months before the deadline.

Journeyman

It wasn't until 2004 when Louis eventually started moving from club to club every few months. In 2005, Hemel Hempstead Town have decided to sign him from Bristol Rovers just for him to play one match for the club. Louis must have broken some kind of record after changing six clubs that year.

International recognition

The forward earned himself a call-up for Dominica in March 2008. His national side were facing Barbados in a 2010 World Cup qualifier which they had lost 1-0. Louis failed to leave his mark, never to get called up again. 

He was most successfull at Hendon, a club who signed him away from Brackley Town in July 2013. In 25 matches for the club from Isthmian League, the 35-year-old shook the net 22 times.

Lowestoft Town became his latest home this summer. For how many months will he stay there? This was his 34th transfer ever and some records are surely broken. Is he the most transferred player ever?
