Head coach of Rivers Angels, Edwin Okon confirmed to that Osinachi Ohale as well as former Pitea IF forward, Fransica Ordega are now back in his fold.

Ohale played for Rivers Angels in 2008/2009 season before moving to Delta Queens winning the NWPL title back to back in 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 season spending 3 seasons in the club before signing for Houston Dash for the 2013/2014 football campaign.

In 2013, the Benue born forward moved to WFC Rossiyanka where she spent one season before spending another single season at Swedish side, Pitea IF in the 2014 football campaign.

Team manager of Rivers Angels, Matilda Otuene also confirmed the news to that towering defender, Ohale and diminutive forward Francisca Ordega have been registered as Rivers Angels' players for the 2014/2015 NWPL season.

“This is their team, this is their home. Coming back to Nigeria may be they felt that it is time to come back home for that reason they are welcome," began Otuene.

“Both players have been registered for the new season and I believe they will add meaningful contributions to the team," she concluded.
