Dicskon's Restoration Cup Competition Enters Third Edition

The Bayelsa state governor says the Seriake Dickson Restoration Cup, a football tournament he introduced and christened after himself three years ago, will outlive his administration.

Dickson made the promise during the draws and presentation of kits and jerseys to the 160 teams for the third edition of the football tournament at the Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha Memorial Banquet Hall in Yenagoa, the state capital.

Speaking through the director of the programme and Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Public Affairs, Mr. Daniel Alabrah, the governor called on the participating teams and communities to maintain peace and exhibit sportsmanship during and after the competition.

Describing the tournament as a football talent development initiative of the restoration government, Dickson commended the organizers including the commissioner for sports and other partners towards sustaining the programme.

The governor also congratulated the restoration football talents picked from the 2018 edition and the technical crew that led the team for their performance at the African Youth Cup held in Cape Verde in April where they finished third.

Dickson assured the team of government's support and promised the players and the officials cash gifts for making the state and the nation proud.

In his response, the commissioner for sports development, Mr. Perekiye Buroboyefe thanked the governor for supporting football and other sports, including the ongoing wrestling classicals organized by the state government.

The commissioner said the last edition of the restoration cup was a success as some of the players discovered were drafted to the Restoration Targets who have also qualified for the finals of the state football league while others have been picked by clubs within and outside the country
