Rangers to Hosts U-17 Team After NPFL Youth League Exploits



The management of the ‘Flying Antelopes’, Rangers International F.C has concluded plans to honor its U-17 squad that recently returned from the inaugural edition of NPFL Youth League that took place in the ancient city of Benin City where they returned with the fair-play award.

The team led by coach Basil Obeta who was ably assisted by the likes of Ejike Uzoenyi, Okey Odita, Samuel Aneke, Chibuzor Madu, Vitalis Chiemezie, Ozonuwe Ejakita, and others, won the admiration of all that thronged the Samuel Osagbovo Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin-City, venue of the weeklong soccer extravaganza.

With two Man-Of-The-Match awards to two of our players, Izuchukwu Nwaogba and Usoro Godswill in the games against Plateau United and Rivers United at the championship, management decided to host the team for good ambassadors of the club despite not lifting the curveted trophy.

Ahead of the reception, G.M/CEO of the club, Barrister Amobi Ezeaku, said, “The performance of our young boys in Benin is worthy of celebrations. It is not all about winning at this stage of their career but development. With the reports we got from Benin, I am very glad and we need to honor them as a sign of encouraging them despite their position in the competition. The experiences gathered are invaluable to the young stars and before long, I believe we shall be celebrating some of them in our senior team and even outside of the country.”

The event will take place at the Boardroom of the corporate headquarters of the club located in G.R.A, Enugu, on Thursday, March 7, 2024.
