Flying Officers Cup 2021: (8 Days To Go): Team Profile – Naija Ratels

Naija Ratels showed an unbreakable spirit at the last edition of the Flying Officers Cup, reaching the semi-finals, where they finally bowed out to Nasarawa Amazons via penalties.

Over the last year, Naija Ratels have been rejuvenated under Bankole Olowookeere, keeping a different style of play from the norm with the players been more flexible on the ball in a more tiki-taka approach, starting the attack from the goalkeeper.

The ‘Ratels’ will head into the 2021 Flying Officers Cup as a stronger team, having finally gained promotion to the Premiership in June, where they emerged champions of the NWFL Championship ahead of the likes of Heartland Queens and Adamawa Queens.

With teenage sensations like Paulina Ali, Aminat Bello, Emmanuel Blessing, Oyinlola Olamide, Adanna Nwachukwu and others, there is plenty of optimism around the future of Naija Ratels.

President of the Club, Barrister Paul Edeh recently unveiled some quality players like Sofiat Bankole, Olamide Adugbe, Adesina Itunuoluwa, Regina Omede into the squad and this may perhaps make the team stronger as they head towards the Flying Officers Cup and the league.

The Flying Officers Cup will kickstart on the 10th of October 2021 in Abuja.
