The race for Player of the Season was fierce. Fellow defender Razaq Ajiboye and right-back Adeyemi Quadri impressed with their own contributions. At just 14 years old, goalkeeper Ridwan Kazeem deserves a special mention for his impressive performance, securing two clean sheets in four appearances and saving two penalties. Defensive midfielder Akorede also played a vital role in the team’s midfield success.

Formed in early 2023, ASE Ridyem FC has had a remarkable journey. Finishing joint-third in their debut NLO season is a commendable feat, especially considering they were only a point behind second place and eight points behind champions Igbajo United. The team secured three wins, four draws, and just two losses, showcasing their potential for future success.

Congratulations to Adejare Waliu and the entire ASE Ridyem FC team on a fantastic season! We look forward to seeing what they achieve in the seasons to come.
