Phillip Aboagye signs first professional contract with SG Wattenscheid 09

Congratulations to Phillip Aboagye who has transferred to SG Wattenscheid 09 from VFL Bochum this week and has signed his first professional contract in the process.

Our 19-year-old defender has signed a 1-year deal with the option of a further year at the German 4th tier club. It’s a great opportunity for Phillip to play senior football and showcase his undoubted talent.

Our man has already been thrust into action for his new club when he played 45 minutes in a home friendly against German Giants Schalke 04, a match that resulted in a pleasing 2-2 draw for the Regionalliga West club.

For those who don’t know, SG Wattenscheid 09 is located in Wattenscheid which is part of Bochum, North Rhine-Westphalia and was founded on the 18th September 1909 hence the inclusion of ‘09’ in the club name.

As for our man, Phillip was born in Dortmund and joined Bochum in 2014 and has represented the side at all age groups including the clubs Under 19’s making 33 appearances.

The opportunity at Wattenscheid 09 poses a real opportunity to further enhance his already glowing reputation.

Congratulations once again Phillip, from all the team at KeySports.
