Watford youth team product Eddie Oshodi burst on to the scene at Forest Green in October 2011 forming a rock solid central defensive partnership with Jamie Turley.
And Eddie’s impressive performances in the Rovers backline saw the strong defender receive a call up to the England C squad for their international with Italy in February 2012 at Fleetwood Town’s Highbury Stadium.
Eddie progressed through the ranks at Watford making two senior league appearances with the first coming in a September 2009 Championship fixture against Coventry City and he also spent time on loan at Dagenham & Redbridge and the now defunct Rushden & Diamonds.
After being released by the Vicarage Road club in August 2011, Eddie spent time training with Northampton Town and Burton Albion but Dave Hockaday snapped him up having worked with him in the youth system at Watford to sign for Rovers.
He made his debut almost instantly on arrival at The New Lawn in a goalless draw with Fleetwood and has attracted interest from a host of Football League sides.
Eddie has previously featured for the both the England under 16 and under 17 squads and was part of the England under 17’s European Championship squad in 2009 that also included Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere, Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and Aston Villa first teamer Gary Gardener.
