Biographical Text

Manny Oyeleke spent 2015/16 with Exeter City playing eleven times. He arrived from Brentford and left for Woking before returning to the Football League with Port Vale.

Manny was a school-age player with Chelsea and QPR prior to joining Brentford aged seventeen in 2010. Making three first-team appearances for the West London club he had loan moves to Northampton Town, Aldershot Town (three times) and Woking before signing for Exeter City in 2015.

Arriving at St James Park in May 2015 aged twenty-two, most of his senior experience had actually been in the Conference with Aldershot where he had made a total of 43 appearances. Making his debut in the opening fixture against Yeovil on 8 August 2015, he played in nine league and cup games by the end of September scoring in the League Cup tie at Sunderland.  He was only to play twice more for Exeter: against Didcot in the FA Cup and in the final league match of the season.  

Manny was released by City in May 2016 although, having suffered a serious injury when on trial with a potential new club, didn't find a club until February 2017 when he returned to Aldershot. A loan move to Crawley followed before a good run of performances for Aldershot led to a move to League Two Port Vale in 2018 where he was to remain until April 2021 making fifty-four league appearances. Joining National League Chesterfield for the remainder of a season that had been extended due to COVID-19, he helped Chesterfield qualify for what was to be an unsuccessful tilt at the play-offs.

Suffering injury during 2021/22 campaign Manny underwent knee surgery during the following summer and, after not featuring at all during 2022/23, signed for Woking in July 2023. Making just nine National League starts for the Surrey club, he was not retained in April 2024 and later signed for nearby Farnborough.
