12 Jun 2023 : Seasoned campaigner Godwin Abadaki enlists with Billy's Army

Our latest aquisition Godwin Abadaki is a seasoned campaigner, who in 2022-23 made 31 appearances for the then Pitching In NPL Premier Division outfit Stalybridge Celtic, scoring twice.

Front man Godwin, 29, is Nigerian-born and played a couple of times for Rochdale in the EFL after coming through their youth system.

He was in the senior ranks at Spotland from 2011-14, during that period having loans at Hyde, Huddersfield Town, Southport, Stalybridge and Workington.

The move to Hyde was the most successful as Godwin made a 10-game, two-goal contribution to the Tigers' title success in Conference North (now National League North).

The 5ft 11 in player has also gained experience at most notably Northwich Victoria and Mossley (serving both clubs twice) and across the Pennines at Shaw Lane.

Godwin has more recently been with Buxton and Ramsbottom (at the latter, he was a team-mate of our now player-assistant manager, Jamie Rainford), after spells with Ashton United and Nantwich Town.

We warmly welcome Godwin to APEC Taxis Stadium, hoping he will soon settle in to his new surroundings and enjoy his football with us.
