Club president of Go Round FC, Charity Obuah is happy with the job done so far at the club.
Go Round FC started preparations of the 2019/20 football season where they will play at the Nigeria National League and have been busy for the past two weeks trying out new players for different roles.
“I was happy when the General Manager of the club (Soni Uboh) reeled out his plans for the playing personnel and how the coaches have gone about their jobs so far,” Charity Obuah said.
The club began with a one week open screening session for players with origins from Ogba Egbema Ndoni Local Government Area, ONELGA, where the club club is domiciled and the idea was to take a closer look at footballers from their own location.
“I saw that as a good idea,” Obuah said. Our idea of having a football club is, as much as we want to run a truly professional outfit, we think we can encourage people from the area who are good enough to be part of what we are doing.”
After one week of open screening that led to the discovery of five players, the club continued with another round of open screening which was thrown open.
“I have only charged the coaches to be upright in their dealing and not turn down anyone who is worthy of being part of the team.
“We want a football club that will be run professionally and can expose the very best to get to the top of their game and from signals, I am getting from the Krisdera Hotel Stadium, all is going well and I see us getting a strong group this season,” Charity Obuah said.
The second phase of open screening ends on Monday, October 14, 2019, and after that, returning players from last season’s squad will join up with those picked by the coaches as they gear up for the NNL season supposed to kick off in November.
Go Round FC had two seasons in Nigeria’s top flight NPFL before they were relegated at the end of the 2018/19 season.
