Apart from the pleasing 2-0 win by VFC on Wednesday, another highlight of the friendly against Rovers was the presence of three former Lions who left the club at expiration of their contracts last season.
Winger Lawrence Effiong featured in the game for Rovers. 'Fada' as he was fondly called, dazzled with his mesmerising skills, before he was substituted in the second half. A pioneer player for our club, Lawrence was disciplined and dedicated during his two-year stay with us where he bagged two goals.
VFC's former safe hands and Edwin Nwakamma was in goal for Rovers for the full duration of the match. The one-time VFC Player of The Month was served the club diligently during his time with us, before expiration of his contract at the end of last season.
Similarly, midfielder Maxwell Okoli who left VFC after a short loan spell last season, was on for some minutes for Rovers FC.
All three players will always have a special place in the club's history.
