National Amateur League: Larry Begins Screening


In order to do well at the forthcoming National Amateur League Division II, Larry  Football Club of Agege, will commence their screening on 4 January, 2011 at Gowon  Estate football pitch, Egbeda, Lagos State, Nigeria.

Chairman of the club, Olanrewaju Sanyaolu, disclosed to GGS in his office that he  plans to build a formidable team ahead of the new season.

He said the club are coming to the National Amateur Division II not to make the  numbers but to play and gain promotion to the professional league.

“I have made it clear to the players on the need to overhaul the team ahead of the  National Amateur Divison I. Some of the players are match rusty and it is high time  we bring fresh legs to fortify the team,” he said.

Sanyaolu said a lot of old players, who do not meet the required standard will leave  the club to pave way for fresh legs, adding that the screening  is open to aspiring  youths across Africa.

“Some players from Benin Republic, Ghana and Togo have called to indicate their  interest. They promised to come to Nigeria for the exercise. That’s why some of my  old players who are not good enough will have to leave,” he said.

However, the club chairman disclosing that he does not have the capacity to pay the  players monthly salaries. He said the players would be entitled to match allowances,  bonuses and other incentives to boost their morale during the league.

“It is so sad that despite our achievements over the years, there is no sponsor to  assist the club. If we geta  sponsor today, it will be easy to pay the players  monthly salaries,” he said.
