446 Temitope Obadeyi
Position : Winger
Played : 2009-10 ( on loan from Bolton )
Appearances : 11
Goals : 1
Temitope was the final signing of the season . He was 20 and had three substitute appearances in the Premiership ( Arsenal and United were two of the opposing teams ) and a decent reputation to his credit. Earlier in the season he'd been on loan at Swindon and scored twice in 12 appearances.
He came on at Bury in February when we were chasing the game and made a good impression. He managed to wriggle past his man on the by-line and lay on an easy chance for Chris O' Grady who inexplicably missed it. He got a goal at home to Dagenham two games later but otherwise he just caused frustration. There was something there; he was very quick and difficult to dispossess but he usually did the defender's job for them and beat himself. I remember him receiving a throw in at Macclesfield and the ball bouncing straight back off his shin into touch.
He's still with Bolton but 9 goalless games on loan at Shrewsbury were his only League outings last season.
