Kick­ing off!

Weekly Trust - - Shot! -

On Tues­day, the League Blog­gers Awards (LBA) end -of-sea­son cer­e­mony held at Sher­a­ton Ho­tel La­gos and it was a mo­men­tous mo­ment for NPFL play­ers who dis­tin­guished them­selves last sea­son. Awards were given to de­serv­ing play­ers in dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories in­clud­ing the High­est Goal Scorer, Best Player of the sea­son, Best Goal­keeper, Best Mid­fielder, Best De­fender, Best Goal of the sea­son, Best New Player and many oth­ers.

In our cover story, we re­viewed the award cer­e­mony by tak­ing a look at each of the win­ners and what they did in the course of the sea­son to de­serve the honour that was be­stowed on them. We cel­e­brate the award win­ners in this sump­tu­ous edi­tion of SHOT!.

We also have for your read­ing de­light our in­ter­view with Ab­dul­rah­man Bashir, Eny­imba’s new sign­ing and one of the best strik­ers in the NPFL. He spoke to us on his am­bi­tion in the ‘Peo­ples Ele­phants’ and why he is yet to break into the Su­per Ea­gles.

The much an­tic­i­pated clash be­tween Premier­ship gi­ants, Arsenal and Manch­ester United is here and our man in London David Billing­ton takes you through some of the key things you need to know about the all im­por­tant match.

And in world athletics, or­gan­is­ers of the London marathon have con­firmed that Olympic cham­pion Eliud Kipchoge will re­turn to the event in 2018 af­ter a year’s ab­sence. He will be re­sum­ing his quest for a third vic­tory in the event.

How­ever, there are doubts as to whether for­mer world No 1 Ser­ena Wil­liams will par­tic­i­pate in next year’s Aus­tralian Open just as world num­ber 12 Svet­lana Kuznetsova is also a doubt for the first grand slam of 2018 af­ter un­der­go­ing wrist surgery.

We rounded up this edi­tion with our Euro Round Up page which fo­cuses on foot­ball in Europe. There is a pre­view of the big­gest fix­ture this week­end in the EPL, the match be­tween Arsenal and Manch­ester United.

In the Bun­desliga, Bay­ern Lev­erkusen are look­ing to rub salt into fes­ter­ing wounds of Borus­sia Dor­tumnd as they clash this af­ter­noon.

This is the juicy pack­age for your week­end re­lax­ation. Do en­joy it and keep a date with us.

Happy week­end.
