This the best preseason tournament we’ve attended – Flight FC youngster
By Sab Osuji
Stanley Ogambo, Flight FC of Gboko forward, has spoken in no unclear terms that the ongoing #GovIkpeazuCup2020# tournament is the best preseason tournament they have ever participated in, Orient Sports reports.
Ogambo is the stand out player of the Nationwide League One side. Despite a decent performance, they went down fighting 2-1 to NPFL title holders, Plateau United in the last match of match day four fixtures inside Enyimba Stadium, Aba, on Wednesday.
But the sleeky forward refused to be swallowed by the defeat but summoned all the courage and confidence he could to reveal that they have taken the positives from their defeat.
“It was really a difficult game, though we expected it, they (Plateau United) are a bigger team. We knew it was going to happen but we gave our it our best”, starts the fair skinned forward.
“I didn’t come here setting a personal target but instead, we came here to play and see probably if we can get offers into a much bigger club, that was our target”.
“Flight Football Club of Gboko is an amateur team, playing in the Nationwide League One. And our ambition is to play ourselves into the Pro League (Nigerian National League, NNL).
“This tournament is by far one of the best preseason tournaments we’ve played in. We have been playing in many tournaments but none of them has come close to this because this one has more bigger clubs taking part.
“Win or lose, we play and we learn from it. So, its a very good tournament. In terms of officiating, its ‘perfect’, I must say”, Ogambo said.
