Union Bank craves for more sporting glory

After a successful campaign at the just concluded Nigeria Table Tennis Federation organized U-16 Super League where her player, Augustine Emmanuel, surpassed all oppositions to beat Michael Abayomi also from Lagos State 4-1 to emerge as champion, Union Bank Table Tennis Club players are craving for more action, even as they almost claimed another victory at the just concluded International Table Tennis World Tour, tagged ‘Nigeria Open 2016’.
Some of them got to the last 16, before succumbing to the superior fire works of world class players that came for the tournament.
They include Bello Ahmed who was beaten by Nigerian-born Portugal-based Bode Abiodun.
The most interesting being the narrow defeat suffered by Rilwan Akanbi in the hands of the eventual winner of the 2016 ITTF World Tour/Nigeria Open 2016, Benath Olah, from Finland in the round of 32.
Parading  over fifteen players at the Nigeria Open, head coach of Union Bank Table Tennis Club, Samson Ajayi reasoned that the standard of the World Tour was above his players, but stated that the exposure gained cannot be quantified.
Adding that the Union Bank team have the materials that can beat any player in the world, just the way Augustine Emmanuel did when he dusted all oppositions to win the U-16 League before coming back to emerge as champion of the 2016 U-16 Super League, thus making it a double crown for the bankers.
The bankers can boast of players like Bello Ahmed, Hassan Nurudeen, Akanbi Rilwan, Kazeem Monsuru, Wale Olaniyi, Alimot Ayinla, Bose Odusanya that won the 2015 Asoju Oba Table Tennis title and sensational Augustine Emmanuel among others.
