Despite playing his first match for Baylesa United, the youngster showed he is a team player as he brilliantly combined well with teammates, Eric Frimpong, John Paul Chinedu, Osamudiame Idehen, Junior Salomon and the others to ensure the team earned a respectable 1-1 draw against the defending champions.

A product of the Pepsi Football Academy, Adeboye played for Lad One Academy before featuring for Bussdor FC of Port Harcourt in the National Division One League between 2008 and 2009, and joined 3SC the following season.
