“Itaye Nundwe is not new to the club as he once played for Silver Strikers and was part of the technical panel that won the league back to back and we fell he will help the club achieve it’s goals of winning trophies this season “, Yobe said.
Itaye Nundwe said, “It’s an honor to me to be given such a position at a big club like Silver Strikers and I will work hard to help the team achieve it’s goals this season.”
