The history matches the Olu playing for us, the name given is for someone very different on google/wiki.
How many names does he have?

Teamsheet always seemed to say his name was Scott. No idea who this man really is.

"He still plays semi-professional football for Woking - who have just been promoted to the National League - but says the game still has a long way to go in tackling the mental health problems of some of its players."

It's 100% him, and it's really good to hear such a positive message. I was pleased to see how comprehensively we condemned Farnborough's shocking treatment of Lenny Pidgeley earlier in the season, and his statement about it was brilliant as well. Good stuff from Cards/ex-Cards.

Maintain Enterprises has received notice for Compulsory Strike-off (which Google tells me essentially means you're making the company non-existent for all intents and purposes) on 12th March. Whatever it does, it doesn't do it for much longer.

It is (our) Olu. The interview and circumstances have been mentioned on his twitter feed since the weekend. Massive respect to the man for being honest and open.

Olu
Well done for being open about a difficult subject. It is never easy, particularly in the football arena. There can be ignorant and hurtful comments made.
I for one thank you for your contribution on and off the pitch.

Good on him for sharing his experiences. Sportspeople are human beings first and foremost, with all the stuff that comes with it. Some of that stuff you can't and wouldn't choose, and dealing with it isn't simple. He'll be far from alone in this, possibly even within WFC. Good luck to him. I hope the past couple of weeks have been really positive.
