Club career

Youth career: Brentford and Manchester United

After beginning his youth career at the Evolution Sports & Health Academy in London, Bohui entered the youth system at Brentford in 2011.[4] He progressed through the youth ranks and was part of the U15 team which won the Junior Globe at the 2014 Milk Cup.[5] He made his youth team debut during the 2014–15 season and scored two goals in 12 appearances.[6] Bohui signed a scholarship deal at the end of the 2014–15 season and scored nine goals in 22 appearances for the youth team during the 2015–16 season.[7] He also broke into the Development Squad, making 13 appearances and scoring one goal.[8] Due to the closure of the Brentford academy at the end of the 2015–16 season,[9] Bohui had his contract terminated by mutual consent on 28 July 2016.[10]

On 7 August 2016, Bohui joined the academy at Manchester United on a three-year contract.[11] He progressed through the U18 team to the club's U23 team, but he twice rejected a new four-year contract and was released when his contract expired at the end of the 2018–19 season.[12][13]

NAC Breda

On 5 July 2019, Bohui moved to the Netherlands to join Eerste Divisie club NAC Breda on a two-year contract, with the option of two further years.[14] A knee injury suffered that same month kept him out until November 2019 and he made four appearances before the 2019–20 season was ended early.[15][16][17] Bohui was transfer-listed in June 2020,[18] but he began the 2020–21 season with four appearances and one goal,[15] prior to his contract being terminated by mutual consent on 5 October 2020.[19]

Colchester United

On 10 October 2020, Bohui returned to England to sign a contract with League Two club Colchester United on a free transfer.[20] He made 13 appearances before being dropped from manager Steve Ball's matchday squads in mid-January 2021.[21][22] Bohui returned to the substitutes' bench in late April and scored his first goal for the club on his first appearance for nearly five months,[15] with the only goal of the game versus Salford City on 1 May,[21] which secured the Us' League Two status.[23] He finished the season with 15 appearances and one goal and was released when his contract expired.[21][24]

Non-League football

In September 2021, Bohui transferred to Southern League First Division Central club Waltham Abbey.[25] He made a single first team appearance and transferred to Southern League Premier Division South club Hayes & Yeading United on 23 November 2021.[25][26] He made just two appearances in five weeks with Hayes & Yeading United and departed to join Isthmian League Premier Division club Leatherhead in January 2022.[26][27] Following four appearances and a friendly appearance on trial for League of Ireland Premier Division club Sligo Rovers in February 2022,[28][29] Bohui made a single appearance for Southern League Premier Division South club Chesham United in March 2022.[26] Bohui began the 2022–23 season with Southern Combination League First Division club Dorking Wanderers B.[30]

International career

Bohui is eligible to play for England, France or Ivory Coast at international level.[31] He was invited to a training camp with the England under-16 team in January 2015 and won three caps for the under-17s during the second half of the 2015–16 season,[32][33] with two coming during the Young Lions' unsuccessful 2016 UEFA European U17 Championship campaign.[31]

Personal life

Bohui was born to an English mother and an Ivorian father.[31] He attended Ark Evelyn Grace Academy.[34]
