FC IfeanyiUbah have completed the registration of thirty three (33) players ahead of the impending 2018 Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

The team secretary Chidi Nwogu was at the League Management Company’s office Abuja to do the needful as regards proper documentation and registration of players for the anticipated new season in line with beating the official deadline for registration of players which was Friday, 5th January, 2018.

The club’s Chairman Prince Chukwuma Ubah confirmed that the Anambra Warriors have registered 33 players comprising of 15 from last season’s squad, 15 new acquisitions and 3 promoted from the feeder team.

“In line with due process and in conformity with the NPFL/LMC statutes and regulations, we have registered 33 players for the incoming 2017-18 season and we are just about ready to venture into our fourth sojourn in Nigerian Club Football circus starting with Sunday’s visit of newly promoted side Yobe Desert Stars,” Ubah told the club’s official website FC Ifeanyi Ubah.

“Last season we finished 9th on the log which was unacceptable based on our benchmark but a lot of factors we can attribute that to.

“However we have learnt our lessons and moved on. We have to start well and our target is to get back to continental football and equally try to win the league, though its a big task but we will dare to do by playing as a unit, working hard and with providence we can achieve all.”
