Elijah Adebayo currently plays as a striker for the U23 squad. At a towering 6ft 3, Elijah started out life as a striker before his Fulham coaches converted him to a central defender. He broke into the U18 squad whilst still an U16 player in the 2013-14 season. He was converted back into a striker once again during the 2015-16 season.

Career Edit

Before Fulham Edit

Fulham (2006-present)Edit

Elijah joined the club as an 8-year-old and joined up with the Under-9 squad. He has progressed through all the age groups to the U23 squad, where he currently spends his playing time as of 2016-17.

He was part of the Dallas Cup squad which were runners-up in 2016, during which he scored a late winner in a 2-1 victory against the United States U20 team.

His first taste of first team football was handed to him as he was sent on loan to Slough Town, initially for one month on 27 October 2016. Only a few days later he had a debut to remember as he scored a hat-trick for the non-League side in an FA Trophy qualifying match against Bognor Regis. After an extension to the new year, he joined Bognor Regis on loan in January 2017.

He began 2017-18 strongly, scoring several goals for the U23 squad, before his first taste of the Football League came with a loan to League Two side Cheltenham Town in January 2018.
