Now we have been able to house them in a very conducive atmosphere, they have been training together, went to pre- season tournaments together so that they blend together for understanding and cohesion. So far so good, Edo Queens is ready for the league and I know with the crop of players we have in our camp presently and the calibre of coaches and management crew, Edo Queens will be a team to beat.” Sabina Chikere, also commended coach Mathew Wemimo, and her technical crew for their technical input, adding that the management is ever ready to provide the necessary logistics that will enhance the overall performance of the team.

We expect the best from them and I know by the special grace of God they would give us the best.
