Biographical Text

Hiram Boateng, a former Crystal Palace trainee, spent two seasons at Exeter City between 2017 and 2019 before moving on to MK Dons. He later won promotion with Mansfield Town.

The strong, powerful midfielder made his first team debut for Crystal Palace in an FA Cup match against Stoke City in January 2013. At the end of the 2012/13 season Hiram was awarded Palace’s Paul Brooks Academy player-of-the-year award and the next season he picked up the vice presidents’ accolade for young player of the year.

Hiram had loan spells at Crawley Town, Plymouth Argyle, Bristol Rovers and Northampton before putting pen to paper on a permanent deal at St James Park on transfer deadline day in August 2017 He made his first appearance for the club two days later in a 1-0 home victory over Newport County and is fondly-remembered for scoring a superb goal against Port Vale in April 2019.

Hiram did not sign a new contract at the end of the 2018/19 season and, on May 27 2019, signed for Paul Tisdale’s MK Dons. As Hiram was under-24 compensation was paid for his services. 

He spent three seasons at MK Dons and was a regular first-teamer under Paul Tisdale but fell out-of-favour when Paul left in November 2019. A substantial loan period at Cambridge United followed and Hiram did not return to the MK Dons first-team until after the departure of manager Russell Martin in July 2021. Hiram regularly featured in League One with MK Dons in 2021/22 but left the club at the end of the season to sign for Mansfield Town on a three-year deal.  

Proving to be a regular member of the squad - both as a starter and from the bench - Hiram was part of the Mansfield team that won promotion in April 2024.
