Governor’s Cup: Bashorun High School, Bishop Philips Academy set for finals

Ahead of tomorrow’s Oyo State Governor’s Cup final, Bashorun High School team coach Ibrahim Fadare on Monday said his school wants to win the 2024 edition of the competition.

Bashorun High School will take on Bishop Philips Academy at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan from 11am, following the third place match between Olanipekun Memorial College, Kisi and Government College Ibadan scheduled for the same venue at 9am.

The competition was sponsored by Peculiar Ultimate Concerns Ltd and organized by the School Sports Foundation.

Fadare predicts their win based on their current form as well as urged all fans to come out in droves to watch the match.

«I base our expectations more on the current form of the players so that we don’t have to worry about injuries.

“Our first 11 are on set; we have a reasonable bench, we have players in form who are ready to make our day.

«We will not let up against our opponents because we want to go for the first prize.

“I told my players that in this one the last chances are less and we have to convert all our chances.

“I have two assistants who go out to watch the other centers, so we have a video clip of our opponents.

«We know their key players, their weaknesses, their maturity and we know what they might want to explore in our team and when we’ve been watching them, they’ve been watching us,» he said.

Kayode Aladeloye, the Deputy Mayor who is also the Chairman of the Sports Commission, described the competition as a welcome development and a platform to capture the youth from the grassroots.

“So the idea of ​​intimidation from any side will not be there. we’d rather scare them than scare us.

He ordered them to play without any form of intimidation from all sides saying that the cup is for them to win.

«One of the things we’ve done is give the players morale, and I think that’s one of the main things.

“We will ensure that as many alumni and their friends as possible are physically present at the stadium to support our school.

«In addition, at the association and individual level, some of our members also contributed to donating first-aid kits, buying jerseys, providing refreshments, renting luxury boxes, just to support our alma mater,» he said.
