Lamar Powell is a forward, who joined the Rovers first team squad for the first time at the end of April 2010 and was included on the bench for The Pirates' home game against Norwich City on 1 May 2010, although he didn't make it onto the pitch. His first, and only, appearance on the pitch came almost a year later when he came on as an 86th-minute substitute for player-caretaker manager Stuart Campbell in a 1–0 defeat to Southampton at St Mary's on 16 April 2011. A year later, having not made any further impact on the team, he was released.

He graduated through the Rovers youth system, and signed a two-year scholarship deal with the club in October 2009, a month after his sixteenth birthday. He was moved up to the under-18 squad at this time, despite still being eligible to play for the under-16s, for whom he scored 52 goals during the 2008–09 season. He signed his first professional contract on 19 November 2010, a one-and-a-half year deal that ran up until the end of the 2011–12 season. New manager Mark McGhee opted not to retain his services however and he was released on expiry of his contract.

Orginally from the Stoke Bishop area of Bristol, Powell started out playing for Shire Colts under-8s, and attended Cotham School, before going on to Filton College.

Career[]

Lamar was promoted into a Rovers matchday squad for the first time on 1 May 2010, but was an unused substitute and he returned to the youth system at the beginning of the following season, not being included in the initial first team squad list for the 2010–11 season. He re-joined the senior squad in November 2010 however, shortly before signing his first professional contract with The Pirates later that month, and made his senior debut in April 2011.

Following his release from the club in 2012 he spent the summer without a team. He was eventually picked up by Bath City on a short-term deal early in September 2012, and was immediately included in their matchday squad to face Bromley, but his lack of pre-season training took its toll and he suffered an asthma attack half an hour after being brought on as a half time substitute, leading to him being replaced after 75 minutes. This would turn out to be his only appearance for Bath, and he left the club on expiry of his contract.
