The Process Of Considering Nigerian Boys For Developmental Programmes
Buruj Sports Academy’s Onwe Okechukwu Emmanuel is set to feature for Borehamwood FC in a trial match versus Reading today.
The sleek and skillful forward is one of the revelations who caught the eyes during the English Super Cup in Manchester where the Nigerian representatives beat all-comers to win two titles about a month ago.
Onwe and other youngsters have since been undergoing trials with Conference Premier side and Coach Gerrard Luke and other staff in the technical department will be having a closer look at him in a proper match situation with a view to consider them for developmental programme like scholarship.
It would be recalled that AbdulBaseet Adebayo also featured for Borehamwood in a previous game where he was used as substitute. The talented utility player went ahead to produce the assist for the winning goal for Borehamwood in that keenly contested match vs the same opponent.
Just like the duo of Ignatius Akuba and Noah Salaudeen have both been offered the prospect of combining their academic with soccer development after excelling in similar trials, some of the players of the academy will enjoy the same benefits if they can prove their mettle and the CEO of the academy Salaudeen Waheed is confident about the abilities of his boys to maximize the opportunity.
The match is expected to kick off by 12.noon UK time.
