Curtis Obeng was recruited by Stevenage manager Graham Westley in February 2014 on loan until the end of the 2013-4 campaign. The signature of the young player was, at the time, a much-needed boost to a Boro' team that was bottom of League One.

Born in Stretford, the defender started out with Manchester City and was a member of the side that lost the 2006 FA Youth Cup Final. He secured a professional contract with City, but failed to make the grade and was released by the Premier League club in 2009.

A trial at Wigan Athletic also proved unsuccessful, before Obeng was snapped up by Wrexham of the Conference Premier. It was with the Welsh side he was to remain for nearly three years, with Swansea City coming calling with a £200,000 offer in January 2012.

Despite moving to south Wales, he was to find first team football away from the Liberty Stadium after being sent on loan to League Two outfit Fleetwood Town in October 2012. That was followed by a loan spell at York City in early 2013.

In addition to his club career, Obeng - who is of Ghanaian descent - has been capped at England U19 level.

With his ability to play at centre or full back, Obeng's arrival provided Boro' with another defensive option as the Hertfordshire club looked to revive its fortunes on the pitch and retain its League One survival.
