Tornadoes ready to secure Premier League promotion

15 February 2014, 15:32

Abuja - Godwin Uwua, the technical adviser of the Niger Tornadoes FC of Minna on Friday said he had evolved strategies to ensure the club returned to the Globacom Premier League.

Uwua said in Minna during a training session at the Bako Kontagora Memorial Stadium that all the technical strategies to be applied by the team had been worked out.

"We are fully ready, our main aim in this year’s Nigeria National League (NNL) campaign is to secure promotion to the premier league.

"I tell you, anything short of promotion will not be entertained. That is our goal. The boys are ready, the fans and supporters are also ready, just like the management too," he said.

Uwua said he was optimistic that with the calibre of players in his camp as well as the commitment of the supporters and the management, the promotion would be achieved.

The coach said that before the re-scheduling of the league to February 15 from January 25, the spirit in the Tornadoes camp was high and the players were battle-ready for the season.

Uwua, who was former assistant coach to the country’s Super Eagles, said if the league had commenced as proposed earlier, he could have known the position of the team by now.

The coach said that he was confident about the prospects of present squad in the NNL.
