Patrick Agyemang Player Profile
Debut: Chesterfield (H, 2-2), 10/03/2012
Patrick Agyemang was the second striker in as many weeks to sign on loan for Stevenage in March 2012 as manager Gary Smith looked to add goals to his side; one in search of a third successive promotion. The forward came in from Queens Park Rangers, where opportunities had become increasingly restricted.
With two Ghana international caps and plenty of Football League experience stretching back to 1998 to his name, Agyemang joined Queens Park Rangers in January 2008 and enjoyed a fruitful start to life at Loftus Road. Indeed, his first six league games yielded eight goals in what was a tremendous run of form.
However, the goals soon dried up and neither loan spells at Bristol City nor Millwall could reignite the striker’s touch in front of goal. With Agyemang left out of QPR’s 25-man squad for the second half of the 2011-2 campaign, his arrival at the Lamex provided the chance for him to find his feet once again.
After helping Stevenage make the playoffs in their first League One campaign, Agyemang had left the club after his loan spell came to an end. However, it was not to be the end of his Boro’ career. The unattached striker returned to us as the summer 2012 transfer window neared its end.
Opportunities in the first team were at a premium both as Boro’ started the 2012-3 campaign with a bang, however. As the season took a turn for the worse, his form also dipped alarmingly. He went on loan to Portsmouth and made an instant impression there, eventually going onto sign permanently for Pompey on a free transfer at the end of the season.
