Former players of Rangers International FC of Enugu and the defunct Udoji United of Onitsha won’t just be eating and drinking during the Christmas festivities this year as they have concluded plans to take to the pitch at the Rojenny Stadium, Oba near Onitsha.
The ex-internationals who are residing in different parts of the globe would be storming home to be part of a charity match being put together by Rangers patron, Benson Ejindu and a former Udoji United and Super Eagles hitman Ikem “Ayaya Potential” Udeh.
Despite being a Charity match, the winners of the December 23 game would be smiling home with a giant trophy- The Benson Ejindu Cup.
The spokesman of the organisers, Diewatt Ikpechukwu told Daily Sunsports yesterday that a good number of the United States based ex Rangers and Udoji United players have signed in to be part of the Charity game which he said would be fun filled.
Ikpechukwu pointed out that both Ejindu and Ikem Udeh are partnering to make the event a big show as part of their desire to use sports to help humanity.
“Ejindu is the patron of Rangers, himself and Ikem Udeh are on the same page when it comes to Charity works. They are putting the Rojenny show together in December as a way of helping former players of the two clubs who are not doing well after their soccer career. The event is one that would attract a good number of former Rangers and Udoji United players,” Ikpechukwu said.
