Rangers International F.C, Enugu, the ‘Flying Antelopes’ after an emergency meeting, Monday, October 26, 2020, fixed Wednesday, October 28, 2020 as the official resumption date for all players retained and recruited by the team.
General Manager of the seven-time league champions, Prince Davidson Owumi stated that all the players were expected back in camp on or before Wednesday, October 28, 2020 for the start of pre-season activities warning that there will be consequences for any player that failed to resume on the said date.
“The players had been instructed to resume last week but the #ENDSARS protests and the subsequent hijacking of the peace process led to our deferring the resumption to this new date which I believe the players will abide by as most roads are clear for travelling. We need to kick-start pre-season activities as a team even when we are encouraged by the number of those that have returned. There will be consequences for any player that fails to hit camp on the fixed date, I assure,” stated the former NPL boss.
Recall that NFF has fixed November 15, 2020 for the start of hostilities in the 2020/2021 NPFL season and teams have started preparing in earnest for the league contest.
