Ondo FA will hold regular football clinic —Adetula
The acting chairman of the Ondo State Football Association, Mr Aderemi Adetula has hinted that the association will look for means to host regular football clinics to encourage talents in the state.
Adetula, who was the pioneer Sporting Director of Sunshine Stars Football Club and retired Nigerian Premier League referee, stated this at a 2-day football clinic organised for young talents in the state by the football association.
The Premier League Match commissioner said the presence of a national coach at the event will serve as morale-booster for participating teams, adding that the FA will always do its best to promote young stars in the state.
The coach of the Nigerian National Under-20 male football team, Ladan Bosso, who was at the event to scout for players to be invited to the U20 camp commended the FA for organising the clinic, which he said will give young talents the chance to showcase what they have.
The veteran coach, who watched over ten teams battle one another during the clinic, urged the players disciplined and never give up on their dream to excel as footballers.
Bosso, who is also the President, Nigerian Football Coaches Association, encouraged participants to always give their best, as there are instances of players who left for Europe from training grounds.
At the end of the clinic, some of the players were invited to the U17 and U20 camps of the national team.
