Chairman of Abia Warriors Football Club of Umuahia, Emeka Inyama, says the club will not sign too many new players for next season, adding that they would rather rely mostly on its old hands to realise its ambition of getting at least a continental ticket at the end of the 2015/2016 season.

Speaking in Umuahia yesterday, Inyama said the team will retain most of the players, who featured for it last
season, while 90 per cent of the technical crew have also been retained in order to make room for continuity.

“Apart from (Ladan) Bosso, who left at the end of last season, all the other coaches have been retained. Chijioke (Osuagwu) is the assistant manager, while the others (Willy Udube, Fancy Ewulu, Igwe Madubuike and Kelvin Ejeh) are designated as coaches.

“We have been able to synchronise all the positions and the order of flow. So I hope that retaining 70 per cent of our players, and retaining all other coaches apart from Bosso, would help the new manager, Kennedy Boboye to key in easily into the team and I am assuring him we will give him all the support he would require.

“We have also allowed him to come with his trainer, all in the interest of Abia Warriors,” Inyama said.

He poured encomiums on the state Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, who he said has demonstrated immense love and support for sports despite being faced with competing alternatives and dwindling economy and assured him that the Warriors will not let him down.
