Born in Aba, Abia State, Uche’s career began in Nigeria with Amanze United and Iwuanyanwu Nationale.

Aged just 18, he moved to Racing de Ferrol in the Spanish second division, appearing in 24 games in his second season, which ended in relegation for the Galician team.

Uche then joined another club in the country’s second level, Recreativo de Huelva, for a fee of $300,000, and scored 12 goals in his first year, becoming the league’s top scorer in the 2005–06 campaign at 20 in just 28 appearances (with five braces), as the
Andalusians returned – as champions – to La Liga after a three-year absence.

In his first top flight season, Uche scored on eight occasions. Notably, he netted in three consecutive matches in November 2006 (with wins at RC Celta de Vigo and against CA Osasuna), helping his team finish eight.
