Teenagers get scholarships at Greensprings Kanu Football Camp

In line with its commitment to sports and education development in Nigeria, the management of Greensprings School has awarded scholarships to two teenagers who were outstanding at the season six of the Greensprings Kanu Football Camp. Prior to the award of scholarships to 13-year-old duo of Oluwatobiloba Ogunleye and Azeez Jubril, six indigent students from public schools in Lagos have already benefited from the gesture while some of them are now members of the National U-15 football team. Announcing the scholarship at the end of the season six of the clinic held at the Lekki Campus of Greensprings School, the Director of the school, Mrs. Lai Koiki said the gesture is aimed to moulding total child which is one of the cardinal visions of the school. Oluwatobiloba Ogunleye and Azeez Jubril will enjoy the scholarship throughout their secondary education at Greensprings School. Jubril is a junior class two student of Eko Junior Boys High School, Mushin while Ogunleye is also a junior class two student of Noble Winners Private School, Ikorodu and they emerged the best campers at the five-day clinic. The teenagers now have opportunity to study at the elite school while developing their football talent ‎and with this they had become the seventh and eighth beneficiaries of annual scholarship. Expressed her satisfaction with the camp, Koki said: “It was a fantastic experience and we had more participants and the children had diverse opportunities. Yes, they have football but other experiences as well. I spoke to some of the campers, one of them said I have learnt how to tackle, another said I learnt how to be a better goalkeeper. It’s just amazing and we thank God for the privilege. This year’s took us a notch higher because we hosted the Queen’s Baton Relay at the opening day of the camp. If you remember six years ago, we had the Olympic Torch. The impact of the camp is really going to be far reaching and next year will even be better. The clinic was handled by foreign coaches from England and the Netherlands, while Lagos State Football Association provided collaborative support to the camp with their coaches helping out and exchanging technical expertise with their foreign counterparts.
