Determined to bounce back into reckoning and take its place among the elite clubs in Nigeria, Abia Warriors Football Club have strengthened the team with the signing of four additional players.
The players include Chinenye Agoha, Chima Ndukwu, James Nicholas and returnee, Binaebi Johnson.
Johnson, who featured for Abia Warriors last season, had failed in his bid to seek for greener pastures and had to return to Umuahia to rejoin his colleagues.
For Agoha, he was one of the players of Giwa Fc of Jos who were freed by the League Management Company to play for a club of their choice until the end of the season after the club was expelled from the league for failing to honour three games within the season.
The Umuahia born striker, who once featured for Zoric FC of Brutan, says he is happy to be back home.
Chima Ndukwu, a combatant midfielder joined Abia Warriors after his adventure with Jomo Cosmos of South Africa. The Owerri, Imo State born player had featured for JUTH of Jos before he travelled to South Africa.
James Nicholas was discovered at the recently concluded Nigeria Police Games in Abuja where he emerged as the top scorer.
The cross Riverian had previously played for Enugu Rangers International and Crime Bursters FC of Enugu before Abia Warriors grabbed him following his exploits in Abuja.
In his reaction, Kennedy Boboye, the Manager of Abia Warriors expressed hope that the new additions will improve the team’s performance as they have been tested and found worthy, having all played the game at the highest level.
