Go Round FC’s coach, Ngozi Elechi has revealed that the club is in search of its next big star in the mould of Daniel Gotom and James Eronje.
Both players were top performers for the club in the first round of the just concluded Nigeria National League season before they travelled to Europe.
Elechi said while in training with the team that the coaches are on the lookout for players in their mould that will take the league by storm, though previously inexperienced in league football.
“James and Gotom had not played in the league before they joined Go Round FC last season. They came from academies and did so well for us.
“Those are the kinds of players we hope to discover in our open screening and that is why we decided to embark on this and leave the more experienced players out of the equation for now,” Elechi said.
Tens of players have been camped at the Krisdera Hotel Stadium for over a week, sweating it out and trying to impress the coaches.
“We are still training. We have our eyes on them and expect a lot more to join up within the coming days,” Elechi added.
“When we are done with this, we will now ask the old players of the team to return ahead of the start of the season, as well as those we scouted in the course of the last football season.”

Published

on

The Delta State Commissioner for Information, Hon. Charles Aniagwu, has said that the State Governor Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa places priority on Sports development and formulates policies that will develop sports in the State.
He stated that the Government closed all schools in the State to discover talents and give equal academic opportunity to those who are participating at the ongoing National Sports Festival (NSF)  and those that are not doing sports.
Hon. Aniagwu, made the assertion in a press briefing at the NSF holding in Asaba, on Monday, saying that Sports is an indigene of Delta State.
According to him, the reason why Delta State is dominating sports in Nigeria was because the government does not give any private school license to operate if the school  does not  have field for sporting activities.
“First when we came in, the governor made it clear that no license should be issued to private school that do not have field where students can do  sporting activities.
“As I speak to you, all the secondary schools in Delta State have been closed to accommodate activities for this event because we have a good number of secondary students that are participating
After the Sports Festival, they will continue academic activities and we do not want a situation where some will be  learning and some are doing sports, we want to give every student equal opportunity of academic activities, but I know they will  to do their exams before Christmas” Hon. Aniagwu said.
