The goalkeeper of newly promoted club, Mr. Chizoba Ndukwe has promised to give his best in order to help his club make their mark in the Nigerian Professional Football League.
Ndukwe believes that he and his colleagues will give an arm and a leg to keep their place in the league (NPFL) as they make their maiden appearance in the top division.
Ndukwe hopes that the Sky Blue Stars can replicate their impressive performance in the second tier, the Nigeria National League (NNL), in which they cruised to win promotion in an easy fashion in their group.
“I am willing and ready to assist the team in maintaining their NPFL status by God’s grace. God assisted me and the team during the NNL season to gain promotion and I am very sure He will do the same when the NPFL season starts in a few days,” the Remo Stars goalkeeper said.
Ndukwe, who was the team’s number one goalkeeper during the club’s time in the NNL, saluted the team for doing the greater job of making sure the club secured the NPFL slot.
“It’s a delight to have the team gain promotion. I appreciate my teammates for doing the greater job during the NNL season and I am sure they will do the same in the NPFL,” he said.
The Sky Blue Stars will play Plateau United in the first game of the new NPFL season scheduled for January 15.
