Name: ONINKU, JOSHUA

Position: Right-back / Left-back
Season Club L Games Goals

2013-2014 Ebusua Dwarfs(Ghana) 1

* In June 2012, Joshua Oninku of Tema Youth FC won the 2012 Ghana Premier League Most Promising Player-award. After another good season, despite Tema Youth FC suffered relegation, Oninku joined Ebusua Dwarfs. At Dwarfs, Oninku has been playing at right-back, as a direct replacement for Chistopher Bonney who joined Asante Kotoko FC. Oninku can also play at left-back.

Oninku is skillful, powerful and an attacking weapon. He is also a solid defender, although he is somewhat petit. Oninku has been described as a player with “deft touches and accurate passing abilities”.

Unfortunately, there seems to be some confusion regarding the age of Oninku. A player from Tema called “Joshua Oninku” has a profile on MyBestPlay, stating that he is born on 05.08.1990. According to Transfermarkt, Oninku is born 06.01.1993. According to squad lists from a youth tournament I have gotten through contacts, Oninku is born 13.12.1996. According to MTN Football, Oninku was only 16 years old per June 2012. In any case, Oninku is definitely a player to watch.
