TeamNigeriaUK storm Nigeria for football clinics

United Kingdom-based non-profit organisation, TeamNigeriaUK, have concluded plans to storm Nigeria for a youth development programme for young footballers.

In pursuance of its resolve to give young Nigerian talents exposure at youth set-ups of various clubs in the UK and other European countries, the organisation is planning screening exercises in Owerri and Abuja on July 20 and July 22 respectively.

It would be recalled that the TeamNigeriaUK’s Soaring Eaglets engaged Golden Eaglets in a double-legged friendly match before the latter went on to lift the 2015 Fifa Under-17 World Cup trophy in Chile.

Similarly, the AbujaShowDown2016, which will see the body’s age-grade teams lock horn with the national Under-17 and Under-20 teams as well as the Lagos State Under-17 side at the Fifa Goal Project Pitch in Abuja between July 29 and August 1, 2016.

The organisation has clothing, kits and other sporting gear from supporters like Charlton Athletics FC, Chelsea Football Club and City University London.

The non-profit organisation plans the maiden edition of the Nigerian version of #ExtraTimeWith in 2017, which will hold every three months across the various states.

According to the CEO of the outfit, David Doherty, the event will be an interactive forum to educate, empower and engage young Nigerian athletes/footballers between ages 14 and 21, who will have the opportunity to be advised and mentored by top role models in the sports industry.

“Our desire is that this will build the confidence of young people whilst also increase aspiration and self-esteem.

“The platform will be a funfair, featuring noted role models from all walks of life who will help motivate and inspire all who are involved,” said David Doherty.
