Tall, strong and athletic, Emeka Obi is a graduate of Latics’ academy who is looking to take on the opportunity of first team football in 2020-21. The defender, who was previously with Bury FC – where he made his first team debut as a 15-year-old in the Checkatrade Trophy - signed his first professional contract with Latics back in November 2018 and extended his terms in the summer of 2020. Obi helped Latics win a number of trophies at youth level during his time with the academy and was rewarded with his first team debut early in the 2020-21 season in our Carabao Cup defeat at Fleetwood Town.
