Ogun FA Cup: Gateway United Beat Beyond Limits 1-0 To Reclaim Title

Nigeria National League side, Gateway United Football Club have champions of 2023 Ogun State FA Cup after a hard earned lone-goal win against  Beyond Limits, a Remo Stars Academy team

Omolaoye Abiodun's 57th minute goal seperated both sides in the final played on Thursday  at Otunba Dipo Dina International Stadium in Ijebu-Ode  

The lanky midfielder was well positioned to nod in a loose ball off Samuel Akintola's low cross 

The Toyin Ayinla tutored second tier league team had struggled to beat both  Imperial FC and Ijebu United sides via penalties before getting to the final and crowned as the champions within regulation time  

The match served as dress rehearsal for  Gateway United's  2023 NNL season opener against Crown FC on Wednesday 22nd March, 2023 in Ogbomoso.

Chief Tactician  of the team, Toyin Ayinla reacting to the win through a statement by the club's Media Officer, Moses Ojewumi , said that the victory should not played down by football analysts on the basis of quality of the opponents in the final of the competition

"It's easy for some people to play down this triumph because we played against an academy but there are no minnows in football. We played against a younger side full of potentials. We are happy"

The win came at the right time, five days before Crown FC clash in the league. We will enjoy this moment and plan ahead" Ayinla concluded.
