St. Gregory’s College Versus Western College in GTBank Masters Cup Semi Finals Season 4


The GTBank Masters Cup which is in its fourth season, is a football tournament for First Generation Heritage Colleges and Private Secondary Schools with pedigree in Lagos State, is currently in the semi-final round and 4 schools each in the male and female category will battle it at Onikan Stadium on the Friday 12th and Saturday 13th June 2015.

It will be an interesting encounter in the Male Category as St. Gregory’s College Obalende will play Western College Yaba. St. Gregory’s College will be riding on their memorable win against old rivals Kings College Lagos whom they defeated 4-1 at the round of 16 while Western College will hope to play at the finals for the first time in the history of the competition when they file out against the Gregorians.

Debutant Jibril Martins Grammar School Iponri will be playing for glory when they face St. Finbarr’s College Akoka on Saturday June 13. Jibril Martins will be playing against a very compact St. Finbarr’s team that is very defensive and sharp on the attack.

For the young ladies, Queens College Yaba will play Ansar Ud Deen College Isolo in a bid to successfully defend their title. The defending champions dominated their group which had the likes of Holy Child College Ikoyi, Methodist Girls High School Yaba in the preliminaries while debutant Federal Government College Ijanikin have a big task ahead of them when they play a very attack minded Ansar Ud Deen Girls High School Itire side.

Winners will be rewarded with the sum of N750,000.00, N500,000.00 and N350,000.00 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners respectively in both the male and female categories.

The semi-final promises to be thrilling as schools play to book their place in the finals. Onikan Stadium will be lit up with the display of extra ordinary skills from these young talents.

Will the debutants prove to be worthy opponents to the regulars? Or will the old timers experience give them the much needed edge that will inch them closer to glory? One thing is sure, answers to these questions will be determined this weekend at the Onikan Stadium.

Come, witness and support young talents as they bring to life unique and fresh dexterity enriched with history of grassroots football in Nigeria.
