Organisers of the Port Harcourt City League say they are proud of some of their products currently in the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL.

Sanipe Damiete, the Chief Operations Officer, COO of the League told news men that they are proud of two of their products, Evans Ogbonda and Austin Osayende in the NPFL.

Ogbonda played for the Port Harcourt City Academy and is now on the books of FC Ifeanyi Ubah, while Osayende featured for MFM and now struts his stuff with with Dakkada FC.

“The idea of the Port Harcourt City League was to get the young boys, busy, play some organized football in Port Harcourt and also see how far our players can go in terms of signing for bigger teams,” Sanipe said.

“For these two kids to move from playing local football here in Port Harcourt to the top tier of Nigerian football is a very big thing.

“It makes us as organizers of the league proud of what we did in the first season and spur us on to want to do more.”

At FC Ifeanyi Ubah this season, Evans, who plays in Left Full back has been a top performer.

Austin Osayande

In the first round of the NPFL season, Evans Ogbonda played sixteen times for FC Ifeanyi Ubah and provided two assists, while Austin Osayende was also a mainstay in the Dakkada FC team.

“The Port Harcourt City League is here to stay and will only get better and better,” Sanipe said.

The second season of the Port Harcourt City League is expected to kick off any moment from now as the organizers continue to tie up partnership deals and close other business ends ahead of its scheduled start.
