BUKOLA BABES FC – SEASON REVIEW

During the next couple of months, I will try to give an identity to all players in the Nigeria Premier League 2010-2011 that I know has been involved in first team action for the respective clubs.

The first club is the newcomers Bukola Babes FC from Ilorin in the Kwara State in Western Nigeria. Bukola Babes FC became number 12 in the Nigeria Premier League 2010-2011 and made a brilliant impression, especially since most of their players are amateur players.

This is the presentation of the players from Bukola Babes FC:

The full name of Sala Abiodun is “Akanmu Sala Abiodun “. He uses the name “Sala” on his shirt.

According to 2muchsports.com, Abiodun is born 05.03.1988.

Abiodun is an attacking player, most likely a striker.

Based on pictures found on Backpagepix, Abiodun is a physical, strong player.

Abiodun played regularly for Bukola Babes FC during the second part of the Nigeria Premier League 2010-2011. However, he did not score any goals and had a rather quiet season.

The full name of Adebayo is “Moronfade Christian Adebayo”.

According to 2muchsports.com, Adebayo is born 18.08.1988. However, Adebayo has been described as a “youngster” by Naija Football 247 and SuperSport. Adebayo has been one of the revelations of the Nigeria Premier League 2010-2011 and was arguably the best player at Bukola Babes FC.  He captained his team during the season. Adebayo is known as a free-kick specialist. At least three of his four league goals were scored from free-kicks.

The picture of Adebayo is taken from Shengolpixs.

According to 2muchsports.com, Aigbe was registered with the birthdate 09.11.1991 at Bukola Babes FC but 02.08.1990 at Gombe United FC.  Aigbe is described as a gifted ball winner.

The full name of Aiyeyemi is “Kehinde James Aiyeyemi”. He is also known as “James Kehinde”.  According to 2muchsports.com, Aiyeyemi is born 09.07.1985. Goalkeeper Aiyeyemi started the season as second choice but was called into action when Suraj Ayeleso got injured. Aiyeyemi managed five consecutive clean sheets (450 minutes) against Niger Tornadoes FC, Warri Wolves FC, Kwara United FC, Crown FC and Heartland FC during January 2011. Despite this impressive record, Ayeleso retained his place in the team and I believe Ayeleso played the most matches of the two.

Chinedu Ajanah is also known as “Simeon Ajanah” or “Simon Ajanah”.

In February 2011, Ajanah was apparently suspended by Kwara United FC for breaking camp rules.

In April 2011, Ajanah was off-loaded by the club. He joined city rivals Bukola Babes FC the same month. Ajanah can apparently play everywhere in the back four.

In September 2008, Ajanah was a U-17 player for the Kwara Football Academy. Based on this information, it seems probable that the birthdate found at 2muchsports.com, 23.10.1992, is the correct one.

Aminu is also known as “Kadir Aminu” / “Aminu Onumisi Abdulkadir / “Aminu Kadiri”.

Aminu was apparently the top striker for Bukola Babes FC when they won promotion after the 2009-2010 season. He also made an impressive first season at top level of Nigerian football, scoring five league goals and playing regularly. Two of Aminu’s five league goals can be viewed in this video: http://www.supersport.com/football/nigerian-football-league/video/13689. Aminu is apparently a set-piece expert.

There seems to be some confusion regarding the age of Aminu. The birthdate 18.06.1989 was found on the official homepage of Bukola Babes FC during the 2009-2010 season.  However, according to 2muchsports.com, Aminu is born 17.04.1991. In September 2008, Aminu was a U-17 player for the Kwara Football Academy, which makes the latter birthdate probable. The picture of Aminu is taken from Shengolpixs.

The full name of Audu is “Audu Abayomi Akeem”. Audu has been described as one of the revelations of the first part of the season and he was nominated for “Best Rookie” in the league in December 2010. On 27.11.2010, Audu scored the first ever goal of Bukola Babes FC in the Nigeria Premier League on 27.11.2010. Somewhat dissapointingly, Audu managed only one more goal during the season. In December 2010, several newspapers published a report about Audu’s plans to further his academic studies at the University of Ilorin. In the same report, it was stated that Audu had been with Bukola Babes FC since 2006 after featuring for amateur sides “Diskaborg” and “Royal Sports Academy”. He was an important member of the team that won promotion at the end of the 2009-2010 season. There seems to be some confusion regarding the age of Audu. According to 2muchsports.com, Audu is born 07.06.1990. However, SuperSport described Audu as a “19-year-old” in December 2010.

The full name of Ayeleso is “Surajudeen Ayeleso Olaiwola”. Ayeleso started the season as first choice goalkeeper of Bukola Babes FC. In December 2010, Ayeleso injured his toe and James Aiyeyemi took over the gloves. Ayeleso worked hard to retain his position and eventually succeeded. In February 2011, the goalkeeping coach of Bukola Babes FC confirmed that Ayeleso was above Aiyeyemi in terms of goalkeeping technique. Naijapremierleague.net describes Ayeleso as “very capable in one-on-one situations”. Ayeleso is highly regarded at Bukola Babes FC and should be proud of his first season at top level. Ayeleso has apparently played for Bukola Babes FC his entire career.

According to 2muchsports.com, Ayeleso is born 12.03.1991. SuperSport confirms that Ayeleso was 19 years old in February 2011.

Abdulrahman Bashir, the top scorer of Bukola Babes FC with nine league goals, has been a sensation this season. He has been described as a petit, hard-running striker with a massive work-rate.

Bukola Babes FC team manager Aloy Chukwuemeka has called Bashir a “goal-a-game striker” and “a talent for the very near future”. I have also read several more objective reports, hailing Bashir as an outstanding player in the Nigeria Premier League.

Bashir has formed a youthful but highly dangerous striking pair with Akeem Audu. Apparently, the current season is the fourth at Bukola Babes FC for Bashir.

Bashir was referred to as a “teenager” in January 2011 but is born 25.05.1989 according to 2muchsports.com. He was training with the Nigeria U-20 national football team in June 2011, which suggests that the birthdate found on 2muchsports.com is incorrect. Bashir has also been training with the Nigeria U-23 national football team. According to fresh reports, Bashir will join Egyptian side Al-Ahly for trials.

Bassey is a central midfielder who is also comfortable as a winger. He is known for an excellent left-foot. Bassey is apparently a former player of UNICEM Rovers FC.

In December, James was profiled by MTN Football as a “Rising NPL Star”

James was described as “an all-action right wingback” with superb work rate, good shots and crosses and great ball skills. He is a modern type wingback who loves to join the attack or deliver pinpoint crosses to the attackers. There seems to be some confusion regarding the age of James. The mentioned article from MTN Football implies that James is born in 1991.However, in September 2011, MTN Football described James as a “21-year-old”. 2muchsports.com seems to agree and writes that James is born 14.12.1989.James trained with the Nigeria U-23 national football team during the Nigeria Premier League 2010-2011.

Despite being a backup goalkeeper, Wasiu was somewhat surprisingly named in the squad of the Nigeria U-23 national football team during the season.

Wasiu played for Kwara United FC during the Super-4 Tournament in August 2010.

According to 2muchsports.com, Wasiu is born 15.01.1991.

Yahaya, who was highly regarded while at Jigawa Golden Stars FC, started the season as one of the most experienced players at Bukola Babes FC. He failed to break through and joined Gombe United FC during the mid-season transfer window. Apparently, Yahaya played for Lobi Stars FC in 2008-2009 before joining Wikki Tourists FC in 2009-2010. This is yet to be confirmed.

Yahaya was part of the Nigeria U-20 national football team in 2008. This makes it likely that the birthdate 25.05.1989, found on 2muchsports.com, is the correct one.

Yusuf, a very promising left-back that captained Bukola Babes FC in some matches during the season, is also known as “Abaubakar Yusuf” / “Abubakar Salas Yusuf”.  Yusuf has truly been one of the discoveries of the season. Yusuf is born 31.05.1991 according to 2muchsports.com. The picture of Yusuf is taken from SuperSport.

OTHER PLAYERS:

Apparently, Bukola Babes FC signed a player called Ismaila Suleiman during the mid-season transfer window. Suleiman joined from amateur club FC Diskabog and is born 20.11.1991 according to 2muchsports.com. Bukola Babes FC also signed youngsters Adua Oninyangi (born 24.12.1994 according to 2muchsports.com), Wasiu Badmus (born 14.08.1990 according to 2muchsports.com) and Emmanuel Arinze Oyota (born 12.08.1991 according to 2muchsports.com).

It is not clear to me if Samuel Monday Ayinoko Abu (born 12.11.1993) played any matches for Bukola Babes FC during the season. The defensive midfielder is currently part of the youth set up at SL Benfica(Portugal). Abu is a product of the Kwara Football Academy.
