“Collins has been a great friend and not only a supporter of Oloontona FC but also teams from the area in general. He supports us by all means by donating playing kits and balls whenever we need his assistance. He has been a friend of us for more than seven years,” Oloontana FC Team Manager, Tom Taine said.
The Oloontana FC is managed by Tom Taine while the technical support is offered by Isaac Ntiak and Petero Sululu.
