Reuben eyes highest goal scorer award

By Rachael Ugiagbe 

Ibom Angels attacker Charity Reuben is excited after finishing as the Nigeria Women Premier League leading goal scorer in the first half of the 2016-17 season.

Reuben ended the first stanza of the NWFL on top of the scorers’ chart with five goals after six round of matches.

The Uyo-based club taliswoman hopes to emerge as the highest goalscorer of the Nigerian topflight division at the end of the term.

“I feel quite happy and satisfied with my achievement in the first stanza of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL),” Reuben tells

“I scored five goals as at the time the half hour mark curtain was drawn and that conferred on me the leading scorer of the term.

“Originally, I set a seven-goal target for the first term but five is not too far away from the set goal, more so as it was good enough for me to be atop.

“I’m not going to rest on my oars as the overall target is to score 10 goals or more but to win the highest goal scorer’s award – that’s the lofty dream I have set out to achieve in the on-going season and I will work extra hard to see it to reality,” she added.

Ibom Angels occupy the fourth position of Group A with seven points, five adrift of defending champions and group’s league leaders Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt.
