2023/2024 NNL: Mighty Jets Int'l to re-strategize for next season

Posted : 14 April 2024

As the 2023/24 Nigerian National League (NNL) season gradually winds to a close with only a few games left, the Jos-based Mighty Jets FC have reached the conclusion to re-strategize for next season's pursuit of promotion to the elite league as hopes of qualification are becoming slimmer.

There is no doubting the fact that fans of Tin City-based Highlanders, Mighty Jets Int'l FC, were expectant of a more glorious performance from the first Nigerian League Champions (in 1972), but things have not been easy.

The management, technical crew, and players of the club have set out to achieve the goal of contending with the very best and coming out among the top guns at the end of proceedings this season.

Indeed, the team has not really fared badly this season, even if its teeming fans may have expected promotion to the elite division. Considering that this is the toughest conference in the league with 7 of the clubs in the group having previously featured in the top flight, it isn't easy duels or an easy ride for the Plateau Highlanders.

To start with, the team this season started with a completely new management team headed by former media head of the club, Mbum Ferdinand, while the technical crew is headed by Najib Mabo (son of the legendary Ismaila Mabo), who is equally new and holding forth for the first time.

The staff is made up of 90% rookies (new players) playing league football at any level for the first time, in line with the management and state government's philosophy to catch them young from the grassroots and nurture them to international standard, thereby giving the youths a sense of belonging. The team was definitely going to have its teething problems.

Following the rather unfortunate 1:2 home defeat to neighbors Nasarawa United (their first this season), where they evidently played better, it was clear that the young lads lacked the needed experience but will surely grow and do better next season. The impressive performances in the games against El-kanemi and Plateau United are testimonies to this. Patience is what this team needs from all.
