Profile

Emeka Obi joined AFC Fylde in February 2020 after leaving Wigan Athletic the same month via mutual consent. Aged 15 years and 86 days, he made his professional debut in a Football League Trophy match for Bury on 30 August 2016, coming on as an 85th-minute substitute in a 4–1 win over to Morecambe becoming the youngest player in the club’s history.

He was then signed by Liverpool for a six-figure fee before moving to Wigan where he earned his first professional contract in 2018.

The towering defender arrives with the hope of cementing a spot in Jim Bentley’s defence this season.
