New Chairman of Enugu State FA pledges to develop grassroots football


TONY Ugwu, new Chairman of the Enugu State Football Association (ENSFA), says the association will do its best to develop the game from the grassroots in the state.

Ugwu told newsmen in Enugu on Tuesday, that the new board members will definitely give their best to improve the level of football in the state, by discovering and nurturing talents for future competitions.

According to him, the association had begun a series of meetings and deliberations, with football stakeholders in the state, on the best way forward.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ugwu, who was the vice to Chidi Ofo-Okenwa, who died on May 5, was confirmed as the new chairman on Dec. 3 at the ENSFA’s extra-ordinary congress.

The chairman regretted the delay in the commencement of the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season, saying that this had affected the development of the game in the country.

He, however, said that the clubs should be in camp and, as professional players, be ready for competitions whenever they were called upon.
