During the mid-season break, Rivers Angels’ head coach scouted a young star, who would later take the league by storm from Young Talent 99 in Lagos.

The 14-year-old girl soon debuted in the top-flight league on February 15th, 2023 against FC Robo in Port Harcourt and turned to pure gold that would soon capture the world’s attention.

Peace Effiong scored Rivers Angels’ only goal in the match against FC Robo, and she promised to score more goals for Rivers Angels with the help of her teammates.

On the 16th of February 2023, death snatched Peace Effiong’s mother, leaving her with two siblings and her father.

After scoring the only goal of Rivers Angels on Wednesday against Edo Queens, Peace dedicated her goal to her late mum. She said she would have wished her mother was alive but it wasn’t so.
