Players and coaches of Go Round FC have moved their training sessions to the practice pitch of Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium as they intensify preparations for the Nigeria National League, NNL season.
Go Round FC open the season at the Agege Stadium in Lagos against First Bank FC, a ground that has an artificial turf.
With the home ground of Go Round laid with natural grass the team moved to the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium on Monday where they will train daily until they depart for Lagos on Saturday for Monday’s game.
“It was a suggestion that came from the coach, Ngozi (Elechi) that we get used to the artificial turf at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium and I saw it as a good one,” General Manager, Soni Uboh said.
“The opening game of the season is very important and we are trying to ensure that we do our bit on the part of management.”
Meanwhile, the club rounded up its pre-season friendly matches on Tuesday with a game against J. Atete FC.
Go Round FC won 3-1 and will now continue their training sessions until they leave for Lagos.
Coach of the side, Ngozi Elechi says they are ready and will not be under the kind of pressure that abridged seasons bring.
“I am delighted this year because in abridged league seasons, we were always under pressure but with this, we can now settle down to play.
“The team is ready. I have seen the areas that we did not do well in past years and we have played a good number of friendly matches,” Elechi said.
He enthused that Go Round FC will go places, especially with the financial support of the club president, Felix Obuah.
