Enoch Andoh was a surprise name on Saturday’s team sheet against Barwell in the FA Cup. The 26 year-old Ghanaian winger joined Hednesford Town on Friday after training with the squad the night before. The decision to keep the signing of the pacey wide man under wraps to use as a “secret weapon” proved to a good one, as Enoch came off the bench for an explosive debut, winning a penalty for the Pitmen.

Gary Hayward stated; “Enoch is a winger with bags of pace, I’m always grafting away looking for players who can bring something different to the squad and he fits that category.”
After starting his career in Ghana, Enoch signed for Portuguese giants FC Porto where he played in the U19 side. A move to Cypriot First Division side AEL Limassol followed, making 37 appearances before signing an 18-month contract at Port Vale. After a great start at Vale Park, attracting the attention of Tottenham Hotspur, Enoch suffered a season ending injury. After re-starting his career with Whitehawk, Enoch went onto represent Nuneaton and Macclesfield, who he left at the end of last season.
On his arrival Enoch said; “I’m happy to have signed for Hednesford Town. Everyone at the club from the staff to the players have really made me feel welcome from day one, and it was great to make my debut on Saturday in the FA Cup. The ambition of the club and the squad of players will stand us in good stead for promotion this season.”
