Rivers Angels Coach, Ogbonda, Anticipates Tough NWFL Premiership Super Six

Posted : 16 May 2024

Ogbonda Whyte, the head coach of Rivers Angels, anticipates a highly competitive tournament as the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership Super Six approaches in Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa State.


Rivers Angels, known as the Jewels of Rivers, finished at the top of Group B with 27 points, securing their spot in the season-ending competition.


Whyte, who previously guided Confluence Queens to the Super Six last season, aims to lead the Port Harcourt-based side to their first league title since 2021.


“I am very happy that Rivers Angels have qualified for the Super Six, and I believe every other coach will share the same sentiment,” he said. “This is where we really want to be at the end of the regular season.”


The Super Six will feature Edo Queens, Bayelsa Queens, Nasarawa Amazons, Heartland Queens, and Confluence Queens, in addition to Rivers Angels, as they all vie for the trophy.


“This is a tournament, and a league for that matter,” Whyte emphasized. “I don’t think any team will have an advantage over the others, as all the qualified teams are champions in the making. Every team has a shot at the trophy.”


When asked about the potential challenges from other teams, Whyte asserted, “I wouldn’t say a particular team will give us a challenge. I see every team at the Super Six as being equal.”


To the fans of Rivers Angels in Port Harcourt and women’s football enthusiasts, the coach had a message: “Rivers Angels are at the Super Six to win the title and represent Nigeria well on the continent in the CAF Women’s Champions League.”


Rivers Angels made history in 2021 as the first Nigerian team to play in the CAF Women’s Champions League. Bayelsa Queens also achieved a remarkable third-place finish, marking the country’s best performance in the competition to date.


The winner of the 2023/2024 NWFL Premiership Super Six will qualify for the West African Zone B (WAFU-B) Women’s Champions League Qualifiers, with the opportunity to advance to the 2024 CAF Women’s Champions League.
