  • Panthere signed Lukong Ahudu on a short-term deal from Union Sportive of Douala where he didn’t kick a ball in six months
  • The move reunites Lukong with coach Soh Simplice and forward Konggyuy Jude
  • Panthere are preparing for the nail-biting promotion playoffs expected to start this weekend

Ambitious MTN Elite Two championship side Panthere of Nde have secured the services of experienced forward Lukong Ahudu as part of efforts to better their front line ahead of the 2023/24 MTN Elite Two promotion playoffs expected kickoff this weekend in the West Region of Cameroon.

kick442.com gathered from inside sources that the 2015 Cup of Cameroon winners secured the services of the former PWD of Bamenda forward from Union Sportive of Douala on a short-term deal with promotion to Elite One insight.

The move reunites Lukong with coach Soh Simplice who made him one of the most-reliable finishers during the 2023 season to enable them to win the Northwest regional championship and finish vice champions of the interpools with Bafmeng United FC before going separate ways.

The veteran forward will also renew his partnership with team captain Konggyuy Jude with whom he spent three years in the PWD front line, providing some unforgettable moments for fans of the Abakwa boys.

Panthere will be counting the forward to inspire them into the top two positions in the eight-clubs promotion playoffs after a breathtaking season in which they squeezed past ISOHSA of Limbe in the last day of the championship to secure the fourth and final promotion playoffs positions.

Panthere, Djiko FC, Eding Sport, Dragon, TKC, Bafmeng United FC, Racing of Bafoussam and Aigle Royal of Moungo will battle for the top two positions which secures direct graduation into the 16-clubs MTN Elite One championship for the 2024/25 season.

For starters, Panthere were relegated from the top-flight championship at the end of the 2022/23 season by a court decision after the homologation and disciplinary commission of the Cameroon football federation (FECAFOOT) ruled that their former president Jules Famawa had bribed players of YAFOOT FC in their one-off relegation playoff game in Garoua to secure their status in the division. President Famawa who received a ten-year ban from football from the same body appealed the decision and won but FECAFOOT opted to rather reinstate the club in the second tier under a different administration at the start of the current season.
