A round of applause for Defender Nnamdi Henry. Dude is strong, fast and effective. Fullife Football Academy have the best defensive record in the Akwa Ibom Grassroots League courtesy of the Yeoman job by Henry who has had to play with different partners in a back three.
Skipper Victor Benjamin is the heart of side with his mobility, intelligence and distribution in the middle of the pack. The likes of Eduek Edet, Wisdom Tom etc are also a delight to watch.
Wing backs like Edoho Mfon and Unwana Mbuotidem are terrorists to opposition players dashing forward and back with ease. Their goalscoring ability is an additional advantage. Edoho Mfon was on hand to finish off the winning goal in the Semi Final against Eagle Eyes Academy.
