Young full-back Eddie Odhiambo made the switch to Stevenage Borough during the 2008 close season after a couple of seasons at Oxford United. He’d started out as a schoolboy at the Kassam Stadium, but his contract was up that summer. With options at his disposal, Boro’ was his choice in a move that he said was a tough decision to make.
We’d lacked a dynamic right-back since the departure of Barry Fuller in January 2008. But Odhiambo never really pushed his case and fell out of favour. This, together with injury, left him with few first team opportunities during the 2008-9 campaign. A change of name (from Anaclet to Odhiambo, his father’s surname) seemed to bring a change of fortunes for the player. Regular football, however, remained elusive; our back four staying consistent in the hunt for the Blue Square Premier crown.
