Roy Kabina Essandoh (born 17 February 1976) is a former professional football player.
Born in Belfast, Essandoh moved with his family to Ghana (his father Richard's birthplace) when he was seven months old. When he was eight, the family moved back to Northern Ireland, where he attended school.
Essandoh began his career at Motherwell when he was 18 years of age. Following a short spell at East Fife, he moved to Finland to play for VPS Vaasa until the turn of the new millennium when he returned to the United Kingdom.
Upon his return followed the highlight of his career when, somewhat extraordinarily, Essandoh's agent responded to an appeal on Ceefax by Wycombe Wanderers manager Lawrie Sanchez looking for a fit, non-cup-tied striker and later went on to secure an FA Cup semi-final appearance at the expense of Leicester City by scoring a last-minute winning header after coming on as a late substitute at Leicester's Filbert Street ground. Essandoh's goal in the FA Cup Quarter-final against Leicester City was voted the 76th best FA Cup moment ever in Andy Gray's FA Cup Madness. It was the only goal he scored for Wycombe.
However, he was released at the end of his first season in English football, and after short stays at Barnet (where he scored twice against Yeovil in the league and Bournemouth in the LDV Vans Trophy), Cambridge City, Grays Athletic, Bishop's Stortford, Billericay Town, Gravesend & Northfleet and Kettering Town, Essandoh returned to Bishop's Stortford in 2005. In August 2010, Essandoh signed for St Neots Town, before signing for Braintree Town on 31 March 2011.
He played on 6 July 2014 for Hemingford Veterans FC v Cambridge and Impington Veterans FC in a 5-2 win.
