One of the leading well structured and organised grassroots club in Lagos, SGH Sports Academy have always been known as an excellent performing club, that boasts of very young and talented lads who have showed hunger and discipline to get to the top of their career.

SGH Sports Academy, who are also known as the ‘Godly Boys’ will be at their very best as they embark on a scouting program in the ancient city of Ibadan, Oyo state.

“We expect the programme to have a positive and productive influence on the players and the academy as a whole. What we do is showcase these boys to opportunities while we expect them to exploit the templates that have been specially created for their rising.

“These sort of opportunities also help in preparing them for the standards required to thrive in foreign leagues which is the major reason why we’re engaging in this particular exercise as scouts from around Europe will be on ground to assess the talents on parade.

“From the reports reaching me from the technical department, the boys seem to be in high spirits going into this exercise. We have already a few players scattered across the globe and we see this as another medium to further spread our tentacles in the world of football. The Godly Boys sure know how big an opportunity this is and the technical department hve assured me of their readiness and determination.”
