    Akpan was a highly rated central midfielder in the Everton Academy but despite being introduced to the first team in the Europa Cup he was unable to break through. A move to Crawley gave him opportunity and there and at Reading he proved to be a fine ball winner with the ability to thread a pass from deep. A change in manager at Reading made him surplus to requirements and his contract was paid up enabling him to join the Rovers. Although he played throughout the next season and contributed goals, he never cemented a place in the starting line up.
