Efetobore Sodje Player Profile

Debut: Welling United (A, 0-1), 27/09/1994

You might have known him as ‘Peter’ back in the day, but Efetobore Sodje signed for Boro’ after trials at both Wimbledon and Luton Town. The bandana-clad defender, however, had to wait for his first taste of first team action; spending time in the reserves until international clearance had been received.

Such was his talent that his departure was never going to be a shock. Well, had Boro’ got promotion to the Football League in 1996 – but that’s a tale for another day. Macclesfield Town earned promotion in 1997, however, and it was the Silkmen who gave Sodje the chance to play at a higher level.

And he certainly took that chance.

Sodje established himself as a Football League player; receiving international recognition in the process too. Nigeria included the defender in the squads for both the 2000 African Cup of Nations and the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

The defender was known and indeed regarded at Boro’ for his powerful headers. Not only that, but he also had a penchant for running the length of the pitch with the ball, only to lose it, get back to defence, win the ball back and set up another attack.
