5th Greensprings Kanu Football Camp kicks off

The fifth edition of the annual Greensprings Kanu Football Camp kicks off on Monday April 4 at the Lekki campus of the school.

With support from the Lagos State Football Association as well as the presence of coaches from Netherlands and England, hundreds of youngsters are expected to be part of the one-week clinic.

According to According to the consultant on sports to Greensprings School, Oluseyi Oyebode, a top female coach from West Bromwich Albion will handle the female students at this year’s exercise in a bid to encourage female athletes to embrace football.

“In our usual manner, we would not want the foreign coaches to come and go but we want them to tutor our local coaches so they can also replicate this knowledge in their various locations across the country. This is what prompted the two-day coaching course concluded before the commencement of the camp on Monday. Some of the coaches will also put to action what they have learnt during the training when the camping of the students commence. The stage is set as all arrangements have been concluded to stage another befitting clinic that will continue to add to the quality of Nigerian football at grassroots level,” Oyebode said.

On the support from the Lagos FA, he said: “We are overwhelmed by the support we have been getting and particularly coming from the NFF Vice President and Lagos FA boss, Seyi Akinwunmi as well as Emzor, a company has decided to come on board to show their unflinching support to sports development through the sponsoring of 12 students to the camp.

However female footballers will be giving more prominence this year due to the presence of the West Bromwich female coach. We are still hoping that more corporate bodies will identify with the camp,” he said.

In line with its usual gesture, the management of Greensprings will sponsor 10 students to the camp being part of their social responsibility.

The serene environment that hosts the camp has become the talking point among football followers while more students across the country are eager to be part of the camp this year.
