Early life[edit]

It was announced on 13 November 2009, that Twumasi had joined League Two club Dagenham & Redbridge on a one-month loan deal.[3] He made his Football League debut on 14 November for Dagenham & Redbridge in their 1–0 away victory against Accrington Stanley.[4] His loan was extended on 17 December, until 9 January 2010.[5]

Twumasi signed for League One club Peterborough United on a three-year contract on 1 July 2010. He signed from Chelsea on a free transfer.[6]

Northampton Town[edit]

Since signing for the team he was a regular member of the first team squad but at the beginning of 2011–12 season he ruptured a cruciate knee ligament in a 3–0 win against AFC Wimbledon and subsequently missed the rest of the season. He has since undergone knee reconstruction surgery. Twumasi was released at the end of the 2012–13 season by Northampton.[7]
