NLNG Technicians Take the Field in TTE’s First Ever International Football Match

Posted 18th July 2018 By TTE Press Office


TTE kept World Cup Fever alive with a special international football match between technicians from Nigeria LNG Ltd (NLNG) and Teesside-based Yarm Athletic FC.

Held at Billingham Town FC, the inaugural international ended in a 4-0 victory for Yarm Athletic, who play in the Stockton Sunday League.

The afternoon was completed by a penalty shoot-out, which was won by NLNG 5-2.

The match was organised by TTE recruiter Josh Naqui, who is also the coach of the Sunday league team, as part of the continuing relationship between the Middlesbrough-based technical training organisation and the Nigerian company.

The NLNG team are among a group of technicians currently taking part in a six-month residential training programme at TTE where they are gaining a range of skills and competencies before being deployed to the company’s facilities in Nigeria.

Josh Naqui said:

“It was a fantastic game and, although the result didn’t go their way, the NLNG technicians put in a lot of effort and gave a good performance, particularly as we are an established team and this is the first time they played together!”

“TTE and NLNG has a long-standing and positive relationship, which has been further bolstered by the match and strengthened Anglo-Nigeria relations!”

NLNG Technician Jeremiah Sunday said:

“The game was fantastic and everyone played well. It was a great experience and something from training at TTE we’ll remember for a long time.”
