The Bayelsa State Football Association has congratulated Bayelsa Queens Fc for winning the 2020/2021 Aiteo Cup final ticket against rival Rivers Angels.
In a statement by the Secretary of the Bayelsa State Football Association, Mr. Diseye Nwankwe commends the girls for their dodged spirit.
The statement notes that the Bayelsa Queens scintillating performance so far in the Aiteo Cup when the Yenagoa based side dispatched Pelican Stars of Calabar 4-0 and Delta Queens, has further demonstrated that Bayelsa Queens are the worthy champions of the Nigeria Women Premier League.
According to Mr. Nwankwe, Bayelsans have never doubted their commitment and patriotism in making the State proud when it comes to women’s football in the country, urging them not to relent until they achieve victory.
He also charges them to see their superlative performance since the commencement of the tournament beyond just scoring goals and winning matches, but their contribution towards putting the State on the global football map.
The state football body while congratulating their male counterpart Bayelsa United for their success so far in the Aiteo Cup, urged them to return to Bayelsa state with the trophy as they prepare to face Gateway United on Friday in the Aiteo Cup.
Mr. Nwankwe equally charged Bayelsans not to relent in their support and prayers for both teams to emerge Champions of the 2020/2021 Aiteo Cup.
