Dominic Oduro enters his first season with the Black and Yellow after signing with the club ahead of the 2022 season.
The 26-year-old defensive midfielder arrived in Charleston after spending the 2021 season with Memphis 901 FC, where he made 30 appearances and logged 2,145 minutes played. Oduro tallied 30 interceptions, 30 clearances and 118 duels won during the campaign.
Oduro made his USL Championship debut with the Tampa Bay Rowdies, where he made 57 appearances from 2018 to 2020. In 2020, he helped Tampa Bay secure the 2020 USL Championship Eastern Conference Title.
A native of Accra, Ghana, Oduro started his playing career in Ghana at the Right to Dream Academy. That propelled him into joining the Manchester City FC Academy in January 2013, where he would spend the next two years, split between the academy team and three other European sides via loans.
Oduro first joined Danish Superliga club Aarhus Gymnastikforening (AGF) in early 2013 on an 18-month loan, where he would appear in 13 matches and score one goal. After AGF, Oduro joined Royal Mouscron-Péruwelz of the Belgian Second Division in 2014. Oduro then joined Superettan side IK Frej Täby on loan in 2015, where made 12 appearances with the Swedish second division club.
Following his tenure with City’s academy, Oduro returned to Denmark when he signed with FC Nordsjælland in 2016. The midfielder’s stay with the Superliga club was brief and he left Europe when he was selected by Seattle Sounders FC in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft, 44th overall, before eventually signing with USL League Two side FC Golden State Force.
