Abia Warriors drop 18 players

05 February 2014, 14:25

Umuahia - The management of Abia Warriors FC has sacked 18 players and recruited 20, the club’s chairman, Emeka Inyama said.

Inyama told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Umuahia that the aim was to fortify the team ahead of the commencement of the 2013/2014 Globacom Premier League season.

NAN reports that the sacked players are part of the squad that qualified the club from the Nigeria National League (NNL) at the end of the 2012/13 season.

"The new Abia Warriors are experienced, young and active players that will take the Premiership by storm," he said.

Inyama said the team was currently going through general reorganisation and that they would be moving into closed camping to perfect their strategies in a week’s time.

"We have played 10 friendly matches with top teams, lost three and won seven, though the team still has the challenge of blending. We don’t intend to struggle because we will be playing against established clubs.

“We have the type of players and technical crew that will make spectators in Umuahia to watch good football, and we are wooing sponsors for the team,” he said.

He said that at the end of the closed camping, the team intended to register 30 players for the premiership.
