Exeter City have this afternoon confirmed their first two outfield signings of the summer (Gow excluded) as right-back Kevin Amankwaah joins the Grecians and last-season loanee Pat Baldwin pens a deal with the club.
Amankwaah, 30, is a free agent having joined Rochdale in the January window on a short-term contract.
Starting his career as a trainee at Bristol City in 2000 he made 54 appearances for The Robins scoring 1 goal and had loan spells at Torquay, Cheltenham and Yeovil. In 2005 he signed a permanent deal with Yeovil before moving to Swansea; Swindon – where he scored 5 goals in 84 appearances over 3 years; Burton Albion; and, finally, Rochdale earlier this year.
Amankwaah is no stranger to injury, though, having suffered a severe car crash during his spell at Bristol City 10 years ago. In 2006 he stated his desire to play for the Ghanaian team – which he qualifies for through his mother but has not been called up to-date.
Amankwaah joins goalkeeper Rhys Evans in the 2012 summer new recruits as we await confirmation from the club regarding Arron Davies. To discuss Exeter City ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of the summer head over to our forum and don’t forget to keep an eye right here for more news.
Meanwhile, Pat Baldwin, who made 9 appearances for the Grecians on loan from Southend last season has also penned a move to City.
A warm Grecian welcome to both Kevin Amankwaah and Pat Baldwin.
