Atta, Opeyemi

Defender who joined Forest in the 2013-14 season and formed part of Turgut Esendagli’s doomed attempt to save the club from relegation.

He was a member of Boreham Wood’s youth scheme, eventually progressing to the first team where he made five appearances in the 2007-8 season, playing alongside a certain Marvin Samuel.

Records of where Atta played for the next five years are sketchy, but he wound up with Samuel again in 2012, playing for Hertford Town, where he made a total of 23 appearances in two seasons.

Yemi did (and we believe, continues to) play for a number of teams in the Turkish Football League, and it is through this connection that he wound up playing at Forest.
