Who is Shooting Stars’ New Coach Edith Agoye?


Born Edith Olumide Alumeida Agoye on January 19, 1976 in Lagos, Nigeria.

He’s been an assistant coach at Shooting Stars since 2013 when he was appointed alongside Franklin Howard (head coach) and has went on to assist subsequent coaches that have been handed the reins at Shooting Stars ever since.

Although, he might be enduring his time as the club official due to the club’s relegation to the Nigeria National League at the end of last season, he did enjoy his time as a cold-eyed striker playing for the Oluyole Warriors in 1994/1995 when he helped the team to their only League and FA Cup double with 21 goals in 42 games. He then sought for greener pastures with moves around Europe from FC Schaffhausen, Rot-Weiß Oberhausen before joining Esperance of Tunisia.

He rejoined Shooting Stars after a fruitless one-year contract with SV Braunau but he could only manage just 10 appearances over the span of two years. Off he went again to Isreal’s Bnei Sakhnin FC where he scored a brace in both legs of a UEFA cup qualifier against FK Partizani Tirana to join the elite group of Nigerian Footballers who have scored in UEFA competitions.

In 2008, he rejoined his first love Shooting Stars yet again after shuttling through 4 clubs within 3 years before ending his normadic football career in 2010.

He wasn’t anything more than a fringe player for the Super Eagles with just one appearance in the traditional all green garb.
On Thursday, he was announced as the successor to the dismissed Fatai Amoo after a torrid 2016-17 season.
