Biography

Since beginning his career as a striker, Elijah Adebayo has developed as a powerful centre-back, before returning to his natural role as a frontman.

Adebayo has been at the Club since joining the Under-9s, and his imposing frame is well suited to that of burly forward or no-nonsense defender. Not afraid to get stuck in, Adebayo also keeps the ball well and reads the game impressively.

A hard worker on the training pitch, Adebayo featured heavily for the U18s in the 2013/14 season, making 16 appearances in all competitions.

Elijah signed a new contract to keep him at the club until the summer of 2017 following the 2015/16 season. 

He then joined Slough Town on a month's loan at the end of October, scoring a hat-trick on his debut. Later in the season he took in a similar spell at Bognor Regis, and returned backfrom his time on the South coast with five goals in seven appearances.
