07 Dec 2020 : Dapo wings in to join Linnets

Former Hyde United wideman Oladapo Olarewaju has arrived at Runcorn Linnets from professional football in Germany.

Dapo, 19, last year joined SV Meppen of 3.Liga - the level immediately below the two Bundesliga divisions - and played in their Under 19s side.

Born in Ireland, he is a right winger who can also operate on the left.

He spent three years at Hyde, initially as part of the youth se-up, then managed by our now first-team coach Mike Allcock, before moving up the first team.

Dapo had joined the Hyde Academy as a 16 year old from Sunday League side, Reddish Villa in July 2016.

He emerged as one of the key attacking threats for the Tigers' youth team, scoring 30 goals in one season.

He broke into the first team in 2018-19, making 13 NPL Premier Divisionappearances - plus one in the League Cup at home to Runcorn Linnets as we went through on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
