Born in Thamesmead, London, Appiah is a product of the Ebbsfleet United PASE youth system, and graduated to the first team in August 2008. He scored his first goal for the club with his first touch after coming on as a substitute against Woking on 20 September 2008.
Appiah missed training in October and after leaving the ground, he failed to report back to the club. His disappearance was explained in October, when League One team Peterborough United announced the signing of Appiah, on a three and a half-year deal. The matter was reported to The Football Association, as it was reported in breach of regulations. On 15 December it was reported that the FA had decided that the approach made for Appiah by Peterborough was "not proven" and so no ruling could be made.
Appiah was loaned out back to the Conference with Weymouth in February 2009 and made his debut in a 2–0 defeat to York City. He suffered from an ankle ligament injury that ruled him out of a game against Altrincham, but returned for the 5–0 defeat to Burton Albion. He returned to Peterborough on 20 March. He spent time at Northern Premier League side King's Lynn in 2009, where he played 9 games scoring 9 goals, including a hat-trick against Durham City in a 11–0 win. Next joining Kettering Town on a month's loan on 19 January 2010.
Appiah joined Southern Football League Premier Division side Brackley Town for the 2010–11 season. Appiah then signed a two-year deal with Isthmian League Premier Division side Margate on 25 July 2011. After his great run of form this attracted a number of professional clubs and on 16 January 2012, he was linked with a move to Blackpool, when he claimed Margate had agreed a deal with the Seasiders and stated that he was due to travel to Blackpool for talks with manager, but he later rejected the move as he preferred to move to London. Appiah left Margate having scored 35 goals in 34 games for the club.
On 31 January 2012, he agreed his second professional deal to play for Crystal Palace. On 28 January 2013, Appiah joined Football League One side Yeovil Town on a month's loan deal. He made his first appearance for Yeovil in the 2–1 win over MK Dons, coming on in the second half as a substitute for Matthew Dolan.
Appiah returned to the Football Conference on 13 September 2013 when he signed on a one-month loan deal for the then league leaders Cambridge United. Appiah scored his first Cambridge goal in a 3-0 win over Nuneaton on September 24 and followed it with the equaliser in a 1-1 draw away at Wrexham and the winner against Hereford in the next two games. Having missed a penalty in a 0-0 stalemate against Chester, he atoned with both goals in the 2-0 win over Salisbury that maintained Cambridge United's six-point lead at the top of the Football Conference on October 19. Appiah had earlier confirmed the loan deal had been extended by a further month via his Twitter account. Appiah scored further goals against Aldershot, Barnet (2) and Macclesfield (2) in November, leading Cambridge manager Richard Money to express his eagerness to re-sign Appiah on loan in the January transfer window.
