• Uwa Echiéjilé – aka Elderson – was born in Benin City, Nigeria and began his career at 16 with local club Bendel Insurance.

• Left for Europe in August 2007 having represented his country at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada; joined French Ligue 1 outfit Rennes and played primarily for the reserves in his debut season, making his senior debut on 23 December 2007 in a 0-0 draw away to Toulouse FC.
