Players Scramble to Join Akwa United

____As the team resume from mid-season break

At least six players from different NPFL clubs are in Uyo with the hope of joining Akwa United Football Club in the mid-season transfer window.

Akwa United had an impressive first stanza in the NPFL with eight wins, five draws and six losses, occupying 5th position on the table with 29 points from 19 matches.

Among some of the players that stormed the team’s camp in Uyo are Abass Rabiu of El Kanemi, Moses Oche of Enugu Rangers, Christopher Lolo of Katsina United, Gabriel Okechukwu who played in the Turkish league last season amongst others.

The Promise Keepers had released four players and will be interested in getting replacements but the management of the club has insisted that only quality players would be given opportunity to join the team as replacements for those that were released.

According to coach Abdu Maikaba,
” We are not rebuilding the team. Rather, we are working to block the loopholes created by the exit of those dropped. That is why the emphasis is on a quality goalkeeper, perhaps two strikers and a defensive midfielder”.

The Technical Adviser also prayed for the quick recovery of injured Skipper Otobong Effiong, Hassan Babangida and Moses Ebiye “In this second stanza, we will need everyone to be available”.

The first match of the second stanza will be a return fixture against MFM of Lagos.
