The novelty match between Paddington All Stars and Shitta All Stars, which was played on Monday, 11th November 2019 ended 4-2, with Shitta All Stars coming from behind (after conceding a goal) to score 3 goals. This performance from Shitta All Stars occurred as a result of the determination of the Shitta All Stars, who were determined to score their opponent. After scoring 3 goals, they continued to attack and they got another goal, making it 4-1 before Paddington All Stars scored their 2nd goal which made the final score 4-2.
Paddington All Stars put in a lot of effort on their football pitch but unfortunately, they could not get enough goals in order to win the match. Their supporters were demanding for more goals but the Paddington All Stars could not pass through the defense of Shitta All Stars which was controlled by Hon. Muritala Saaka Oluwa (Supervisor for Chieftancy and Boundary Matters, Surulere LG). Funny enough, Hon. Oluwa showed that his portfolio as Supervisor for Boundary Matters is one that he can handle efficiently, judging from his performance at the defense territory of Shitta All Stars. He put in a lot of effort in order to deny the opponent opportunity to score goals. The Shitta All Stars supporters were happy and cheering their players till the end of the game. It was a very interesting game and I hope to see Paddington All Stars gaining their form back in future, because the team is known to be one of the best in Surulere Grassroots Football.
