Emmanuel Godwin who according to the Club CEO, who also doubles as the club Sporting Director describes Godwin as one of the most gifted and versatile player of his 5 years old Academy.

Emmanuel Godwin will train with Trelleborg for 3 weeks and will be looking to join his fellow compatriot and another product of Tripple 44, Abel Ogwuche who in November last year signed a permanent contract of 5 years with the Superrentan side.

Samuel Olatunji Okuku, the Club’s CEO in a statement to the media department of the club stated that “we have put in so much work in preparing these players in readiness for these test assessments with Malmo and Trelleborg and we are hoping that they will live up to expectations.

He further spoke on the recent fortunes of the club in terms of career advancement and the progress that a number of their products are currently experiencing both at the National team level and on the path to securing professional contracts.

“This period is like our harvest time, over the years we have painstakingly invested huge resources in developing and training our players. We long realise that we can’t cut corners in terms of developing and equipping our players. That has always been the missing ingredients with Nigerian players, we are never lacking in talents but developing the players in the right way as always been a challenge for our boys but we decided to change the narrative and the first thing we ensured we did was getting our scouting and recruitment policies right. We also adopted and integrated one of the best youth Academies in Ibadan as our Under 15 team and today we are beginning to enjoy the dividends of those hardwork and strategic planning of years.’

He continues ” at the moment, three of our boys, IFEOLUWA OLOWOPOROKU, AJIBOLA OWOYEMI AND CHIJOKE LINUS are part of the Nigerian U-17 squad flying Nigeria’s flag in Algeria with Jibola playing for 90 minutes in Nigeria’s victory against Zambia. It is no surprise that we are the fastest growing academy in West Africa and by extension Africa. We won’t stop now, we will keep pushing hard until we become one of the best two Academies from Africa” concluded Okuku

One of the revelations for Inter Lagos FC and a youth product of Flying Angels Academy of Enugu, Daniel Onyia has stated that he expects a fight from his team mates as they take on Giant Brillars at the UNEC Stadium, Enugu in another away fixture this weekend.
Daniel was a key member of the 2023 Nigerian U-17 side tutored by Coach Nduka Ugbade but failed to make the final squad list to the 2023 AFCON U-17 in Algeria on administrative grounds.
The 17 year old midfielder has now joined up with new and ambitious NNL side, Inter Lagos FC and have been in great form for the side despite the Lagos based side losing its first two matches.
As the team embarks on its second away tie to Giant Brillars this weekend, Daniel has now assured fans and stakeholders of the club of a resurgent form for his side.
In his words, the exciting and gifted midfielder while speaking with the media said that ‘’We are hoping to finally pick our first point this weekend against Giant Brillars and I am hoping it will be a rewarding home-coming for me. The stadium to host the match, the UNEC Stadium is just a stone throw away from where I and my family live in Enugu, so I am hoping my people from my community will throw their support behind our team against Giant Brillars. I also believe this will mark a turnaround for us because in all honesty we gave our very best in our first two games of the season, first against Ijebu United whom we really played well against and I feel we actually deserved at least a point in that match but luck didn’t smile on us in that encounter. Also against Crown FC of Ogbomosho, we also put in so much and felt we were hard done by hard luck but we are hoping all of that will change starting with our match against Giant Brillars in Enugu’’ concluded Daniel Onyia
