One of the oldest teams in Paynesville, the Mighty Electrons is currently soliciting the support of its fans and residents.
According to hundreds of residents in the ELWA Community where the team is based, there is a need to support the team.
Patrick Anderson and Rudolf Bens told the INQUIRER during one of Electrons’ practices that the survival of the team will solely depend on incomes generated from residents in the ELWA Community.
Both Patrick and Rudolf are certain that given the population of the residence in the ELWA Community, financial supports will go a long way in improving the well-being of players of the team and even provide funds for other areas.
They named some of the areas as transportation, incentives for players and officials of the team, purchasing jerseys, footballs and boots for players.
But according to the coach of Mighty Electrons, Galtor Tokeh, the issue of support needs to be addressed to save the team from relegation.
Making the appeal at Electrons’ ELWA Compound headquarters weeks ago, Coach Tokeh said the team has come a long way to be lacking of support given the numerous contributions it has made in promoting the country.
They named some of the areas as transportation, huge incentives for players and officials of the team, purchasing jerseys for players to use, footballs and boots for players.
According to Coach Tokeh, Mighty Electrons has produced lots of potential talents and should not be left to public ridicule.
He said the team being in District #6 which he considered as one of the richest Districts in Montserrado County where top Government Officials reside especially, Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, former Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Liberia Edwin M. Snowe the team should have been one of the best teams in Liberia at this time.
He is also admonishing his colleagues in and out of Liberia to at least render some financial assistance to the team.
Mighty Electrons was established in the early 60’s and has produced many players like John Giean, John Dakaliah and Coach Garltor Tokeh who all served as striker, midfielder and defender respectively, Edwin G. Wandah writes.
