Stars Of Yesterday

I was in Owerri yesterday as guest of ex-players of defunct Iwuanyanwu Nationale FC who held the maiden edition of the anniversary of the 1994 Oriental Airline plane crash (25 years ago).

According to Obinna Obiaka the coordinator of the event, “the trauma of the incident delayed the anniversary this long as it became a ghost hunting most of us. Each time we remembered it, tore us apart. It was the reason why I called it quit with football”.

It was a gathering of stars. In fact, I was “star-strucked”….Please permit that coinage. Past players old Spartans FC of Owerri which metamorphosed into Iwuanyanwu Nationale and later Heartland FC were part of the gathering. There were also other stars who didn’t play for any of the teams.
●Nicholas Ukadike
●Kevin Uwana
●Sylvester Oparanozie
●Obinna Obiaka
●Casmir Mbachu
●Chibuzor Ozurumba
●Joe Ubanwa
●Ndubuisi Opara
●Friday Onyeukwu…..and many more.

Indeed, it was an evening of fun which attracted nostalgic feelings. I reported the performances or careers of some of these stars in their active days. So meeting them again after so manh years brought back instant memories of their performances.

Wednesday 18th September 2019 was really a day to remember. Many thanks to coach Alphonsus Dike who was one of the coaches that led the team involved in that crash. He was one of the survivors. He made me grab the real feeling of the past and glorious era of our football. Watch out for an exclusive interview with him and others here and on the pages of some national dailies.

The anniversary started with a church servuce at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Chaplain in Dan Anyiam Stadium. The organisers and ex-players went on a roadshow from Dan Stadium through Douglas road, Mbaise road, Wetheral road, Ohozara and ended on Ngwa street by Aladinma Street where the ex-players, fans and coaches had light refreshment before dispersing to their respective homes.
