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. Coming back to the PL2 side Adebayo made 17 appearances for the Under-23s in the 2016/17 season.

In January 2018 Adebayo joined Cheltenham Town on a six month loan after impressing in the PL2, having notched up 11 goals and 7 assists by Christmas. He made 7 appearances for Cheltenham, scoring twice and assisting once.

In July 2018 he secured a second League Two loan spell at Swindon Town, this time for the entire season.
