British-born Ghanaian forward Claudio Ofosu has expressed excitement after making his full league debut for English National League outfit Hartlepool United.
The 21-year old attacker enjoyed full throttle in his side’s league opener 2-1 win over Aldershot Town on Saturday.
Goals from Nicky Featherstone and Gavan Holohan were enough to see Dave Challinor’s side snatch an opening day victory with the Ghanaian international excelling with his thunderous display upfront.
Ross Tanner, however, grabbed the only consolation goal for Aldershot Town.
”Grateful and humbled to have made my full league debut and Most importantly the 3 points @Official_HUFC” he tweeted.

The 21-year-old joins the fifth tier side after spending last season with BetVictor Southern League Premier Division side Royston Town where he enjoyed a successful season driving them to a second-place league finish.
With 9 goals and 11 assists last year, Claudio who is of Ghanaian parentage quickly became well known for his quick speed, skillful wing play, and natural ability to run past his man.
Ofosu began his career with St Neots Town, making 24 appearances before joining Stevenage, progressing through the club’s youth system and enjoying loan spells at Biggleswade United, where he bagged three goals in six appearances, and then six appearances at Kings Langley before a loan spell at Mildenhall Town, all gaming valuable first-team experience.
After leaving The Lamex Stadium, Ofosu returned to St Neots Town, netting three times in 24 appearances.
