Cowbell Football Academy (CFA) youngsters will on Saturday take on Stationery Stores FC at the National Stadium in Lagos to mark the close of the 2018 camping season.
The match comes as the Co-ordinator of the Cowbell Football Academy, Barrister Godwin Dudu-Orumen marks his 60th birthday. The experienced football/player management expert will host friends to a cocktail later in the day at his Sports Shaq pavilion.
Dudu-Orumen said in Lagos during the week that the programme,bank-rolled by the parent company Promasidor Nigeria Limited has been quite fulfilling for everyone involved.
He said, “It is all thanks to Promaisidor, these coaches and ex-internationals that have made this programme quite meaningful.
And we are very confident that over time Nigerian football will benefit largely from the quality grooming these young ones are receiving here.”
The Head of Legal and Corporate Communication at Promasidor Nigeria, Andrew Enahoro, said the company remains committed to the dream of Cowbell Football Academy and expanding its scope despite the challenging economic environment in Nigeria. It is the ultimate goal of the company to positively impact Nigerian youths.
“This is just one of our youth-centric CSRs. Through Cowbellpedia Secondary School Mathematics Television Quiz Competition, we are also stimulating young people’s interest in Mathematics. For us, it is not only about bottom-line but also about thefuture of the Nigerian child,” Enahoro said.
Over 250 young talents are participating in the camp. Besides Cowbell Football Academy, Promasidor Nigeria also reaches out to Nigerian youths through Harness Your Dream, a career awareness workshop for public secondary school students, Loya Swim Meet and Cowbellpedia and other initiatives.
