Arthur Oliver - Wikipedia
Oliver began to build more contacts in Italy as his stock soared. He is responsible for bringing about 90 percent of the Ghanaian players in Italy there, but typical of African footballers, some of them have signed for other agents because of greed and ungratefulness. Over the past years, Oliver has spread his tentacles to Nigeria.
He is also in the process of moving to other countries. With football agent business being perceived as a job for the whites previously, Oliver is currently rewriting history in African football as he has put up good structures to help get the best football talents from Africa and transform their lives. He has a unique network which consists of paid scouts in every region of Ghana, this helps him to get all the quality players through out the country.

Last year , Oliver established his own football Academy in Accra named EuroAfrica Calcio Academy in an effort to get enough quality talents and train them for the European market. The players who are currently numbering 50 are housed in Kings Cottage, which is one of the plush environs in Accra. The main target of Oliver over the past years has been youth football and now he has some of the best African teenage players all over Europe. He is in touch with almost all the family of his players as he continues to change perception about the business. Just before last season ended, he was seen at the stands of the Empoli Stadium with the mother of his client Afriyie Acquah.
Undoubtedly, the likes of Pini Zahavi, Jorge Mendes, and Mino Raiola are making waves with European and South American players but in Africa, we certainly have a young ambitious agent in the person of Oliver Arthur who is gradually cutting his own path and proving that native African agents can do it also.
There are certainly lots of things I fancy about Oliver; his in-depth knowledge in the job, his humility, his loyalty and above all his intelligence. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

Between January and April , the Brigade was reinforced and trained, while at the same time providing defensive support to allied units defending the Suez Canal Zone from raids by Sinai Desert-based Turkish forces. Details of Arthur's service in France, hospitalisation and further training in England, and his return to France are detailed in the Biographical Notes attached to his record. On 27th October , Arthur returned from leave and rejoined his machine gun unit in the field around Polygon Wood. On 24th November , Arthur was killed in action, which means he was promoted posthumously to the rank of Sergeant.
Arthur saw to it that the crew were under cover while he with his No 1 stood to the gun in case of emergency.
When I arrived ten minutes later, Arthur was sitting against the side of the trench with a smirk on his face — he had died doing his duty and mercifully without any pain. This happened at ten minutes past five on 24th Nov just at dusk. At night we laid him to rest in a shell hole, erecting a rude wooden cross to his sacred memory. Biographical Notes.
