Welcome to Peterhead Blessing Oluyemi

Jun 28, 2023

Peterhead FC are delighted to announce that we’ve agreed terms to sign former Aberdeen FC goalkeeper Blessing Oluyemi on a two-year contract with the option of a third year.

The 18-year-old has impressed at youth level for both Aberdeen and Scotland and played for the Dons against MLS side Atlanta United last November in a mid-season training camp.

The goalkeeping department at Peterhead with Stuart McKenzie (35) and Sandy Wood (37) is full of experience giving Blessing the opportunity to learn and take his game to the next level.

Peterhead FC Co-Manager Jordon Brown says Oluyemi is the calibre of player they want to entice to Balmoor, “it’s great to get Blessing on board, he’s at a completely different scale of age and experience to Stuart and Sandy but he’s been training with us the past couple of weeks and we think there’s potential there. These are the type of players we want to attract to the club, guys who are coming out of full-time football and want to make Peterhead their next step. We believe Blessing can learn so much from the goalkeepers and our goalkeeping coach Barry Thompson.”

Blessing becomes the 20th player to commit to the Blue Toon for season 2023-2024 and everyone at Peterhead FC extends a warm welcome to Blessing and look forward to working with him.
