Ghanaian forward Aaron Opoku joins English side Matlock Town from Carlton Town

English-born Ghanaian forward Aaron Opoku has completed a move to Northern Premier League side Matlock Town from Carlton Town.

He joins the club for an undisclosed fee after successful negotiations.

Opoku has been with Carlton for four years now and has built a reputation of being quick and aggressive with an eye for goal.

In 38 appearances for the Millers last term, he scored 14 goals, finishing as the club’s joint leading scorer alongside Nathan Watson.

The 26-year-old is moving from Nottingham to the Manchester area and former Matlock striker Darryl Thomas, now on the coaching staff at Carlton, has advised Opoku that a move to Matlock would be beneficial for him at this stage of his career.

Phillips has had Opoku on his radar for some time and moved quickly when he found out that Opoku would be leaving Stoke Lane to head to Manchester.

The move is subject to approval by the FA and the NPL.
