Come Saturday, October 9, 2021 FCT Sports Writers Association (FCT SWAN) FCT chapter members will set aside their midgets, drop their pens, keep papers away and ignore the mics as they take to the field of football to battle Unity Sports Foundation, USF in a novelty match to honour late goalkeeper, Edmund Azuibike
Described by the gladiators as a blockbuster friendly, the clash would take the centre stage at the FIFA Goal Project, Package B of the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
The match is put together by the Executives of the SWAN and management of USF to honour late goalkeeper, Edmund Azuibike who was a member of USF.
Speaking ahead of the encounter, SWAN chairman, Bunmi Haruna says though it is a friendly game, his players will approach the game with their minds focused on winning.
“We totally appreciate the organizers of this friendly game put together by SWAN’s competition committee, headed by Tolulope Oguntimehin.”
“Not many teams want to play us, because they are scared we would beat them.”
“We are focused on winning come Saturday, we have promised and we will deliver” Bunmi said.
On his part, the chairman and captain of USF, Engr Anaguoye Benjamin, said that the match would further consolidate the existing partnership with the FCT SWAN and also to honour their late goalkeeper, Edmund Azuibike who died last month for his great service to the club.
“The friendly match is all about cementing our existing partnership, share mutual ideas with the FCT SWAN that will benefit both parties and most importantly pay tribute to our late goal keeper Edmund Azuibike who give all his best to the club while he was alive” he concluded.
