Bradley Hudson-Odoi (born 29 November 1988) is a Ghanaian footballer who plays as a striker for Sutton United in the National League.

Background[edit]

Born in Accra,[1] Hudson-Odoi is the son of former Hearts of Oak midfielder Bismark Odoi.[3][4]

Club career[edit]

He joined Fulham at the age of 12 but never played for the first team.[5] He signed for Hereford United on 16 July 2008.[5] He made his debut for Hereford in a 2–1 defeat against Leyton Orient.[6]

In March 2009, Hudson-Odoi signed for Grays Athletic on an initial one-month loan with a view to a permanent deal after spending two-weeks on trial with the Conference National club.[7] He made his debut on 7 March 2009 in the 2–1 home win over Altrincham, supplying Jamie Slabber with a cross to score Grays' second goal.[8] He joined Histon on a contract until January 2010 in August 2009.[9] He rejoined Grays on a month's loan on 27 November.[10] He rejoined Grays Athletic for a third time on 26 October 2010, before joining Conference South club Thurrock in December. After a stint abroad at Hungarian side Vasas, Bradley joined Metropolitan Police on trial, before signing a contract in January 2014.[11] Playing for Wealdstone in the 2015–2016 season, Bradley was voted their player of the season. After the season ended, Wealdstone announced Bradley's departure for a team in the National League,[12] later announced as Sutton United.[13]

Hudson-Odoi made his first league appearance for Sutton as a substitute on their opening day defeat of the 2016–17 season to Solihull Moors on 6 August 2016, coming on for Roarie Deacon, before making his first full appearance and debut in a 2–0 win over Torquay United on 16 August. On his third appearance for Sutton, he scored his first league goal for the club and the winner in a 1–0 home victory over Dagenham & Redbridge on 29 August 2016 when he connected with Ross Stearn's cross and struck a smart half volley 11 minutes into the game.[14] On 10 November 2016 Hudson-Odoi joined Maidstone United on loan for one month.[15]

Hudson-Odoi appeared in Sutton's historic run to the 5th round of the FA Cup for the first time ever, including a 3-1 victory over League One side and local rivals AFC Wimbledon in the 3rd round on 17 January 2017[16] and a 0-2 defeat to Premier League team Arsenal in the 5th round on 20 February.[17]

International career[edit]

He was part of the squad for the 2007 Toulon Tournament.[4]
