The defender, whose team (Kanifing South) lost to Pipeline in the final, said he felt great returning to play where it all started (on a sandy playground).

In summer 2012 Ceesay left Žilina yet again to play for ŠTK 1914 Šamorín on a one-year loan.

In March 2014 the Latvian Higher League club Skonto Riga announced the signing of Ali Ceesay for the upcoming season.
