The final game between Glamour Football Club of Ikire and Royal Football Club of Ikoyi was a keenly contested affair by both teams, but Royal FC of Ikoyi had the last laugh with just a lone goal.
While presenting the trophy to the winner, Omidiran said the essence of the championship was to cash on sports, which has been identified as one of the ways to reduce youth restiveness in the land.
