Signed for Wanderers at the start of the 2014/15 season following his release from Newport County - signing a deal until 7th January 2015 - having played in a couple of pre-season friendlies. Commenting at the time of the deal, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: "I’ve taken my time to have a good look at him because he needs fitness. We’ve not seen him at his best but he’s certainly got something to offer and I believe we can get that out of him. He’s got a great physique, he’s powerful, fast and he’ll get goals. But first of all, we need to get him fit to see what he really can do."
Originally started his senior football with Cardiff City, representing Wales at U17 level before joining Bristol City in 2011 aged 18. Despite making the Welsh U19 side failed to break into the City First Team and spent a brief spell on loan at Bath City before his eventual release from Ashton Gate in January 2014. A move to then League Two Newport County in February 2014 led to his Football League debut the following when he appeared as substitute in the League meeting with Morecambe. Added a further three appearances for County before his release at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.
Scored his first goal for Wycombe when he netted a late equaliser in the League Two meeting with Northampton Town at Adams Park on 4th October 2014. Progressed to become a key member of the Wycombe squad and being awarded an extended contract in January 2015, running until June 2016. Ainsworth commented: "We’ve always said that Aaron is a work in progress because he needed to be given the opportunity to build up his fitness and prove his potential. I’m really pleased with how far he’s developed so far and I’m excited to keep him here so we can continue to bring the best out of him over the coming months"
Holloway continued to be a key member of the Wycombe for the second-half of the 2014/15 season - netting the second goal in the Play-Off Semi-Final 1st Leg victory at Plymouth in May 2015 and also featuring heavily in the Wembley Final defeat to Southend.
At the start of the 2015/16 campaign announced that he would prefer to be known under his full family name of Aaron Amadi-Holloway.
An indifferent first half of the 2015/16 campaign at Adams Park saw the attacking midfielder in and out of the side under Gareth Ainsworth with more than half of his appearances coming from the bench. Seemingly falling out of favour with the Wycombe Manager, he was loaned to 'League One' outfit Oldham Athletic in February 2016 where he scored two goals in ten appearances. At the end of the 2015/16 season he was offered a new deal at Wycombe but turned this down in favour of a two year deal with 'League One' Fleetwood Town. The move to Lancashite came amidst reports that he was also in talks with Glasgow Rangers.
Commenting on the move via his Twitter account, Holloway said: "I'd like to say how thrilled I am to become a Fleetwood Town player and join such an ambitious club. I also want to thank Wycombe Wanderers who two years ago offered me a path back into professional football following injury. Oldham Athletic subsequently allowed me to prove I can perform at this level last season, and I always will be grateful to those who showed that belief in me. A special thank-you to the fans for their support at both clubs too."
