Emmanuel Osadebe




Date of birth







Republic of Ireland

Macclesfield Town were delighted to announce the signing of athletic midfielder Emmanuel Osadebe in the summer of 2019, after he joined the club on a one-year deal.

The hard-working midfielder started his career with Irish side Dundalk, before making the illustrious move to Tottenham Hotspur as part of their Foundation College Programme in 2014.

Emmanuel then secured his first professional contract at Gillingham and made his debut for The Gills on 8th August 2015 during a 4 - 0 victory over Sheffield United.

He made an immediate impression down in Kent, as he picked up the Man of The Match award against The Blades and followed this up with a string of impressive performances which resulted in him being called up to the Republic of Ireland Under 21 side three months later.

The accolades kept raining in, as Emmanuel secured Gillingham's Goal of the Season award for his remarkable strike against Bury and in the summer of 2016 it was no surprise when he was offered a new contract at the Priestfield Stadium.

Making a total of 42 appearances for the Kent side, the tenacious midfielder then signed for Cambridge United on a two-year deal where he would make 16 appearances for The U's - in addition to a brief loan spell at Newport County.
