Head coach of the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan, Gbenga Ogunbote, has charged the club’s feeder team to aim for promotion as they begin their campaign in the 2023 Nationwide League One (NLO).
Addressing the players after their final training ahead of Wednesday’s opening fixture against Pacesetters FC, coach Ogunbote urged them to be positive as they commence the quest for promotion to the Nigeria National League (NNL).
He told the players to see their participation in the NLO as an opportunity to launch themselves into reckoning and to build a solid career.
While warning then to shun any act of indiscipline on and off the pitch, especially during matches, oracle, as the gaffer is fondly called, promised to reward them for every victory in their games.
The Shooting Stars Feeder Team will trade tackles with Pacesetter FC in a Group C2A match, slated for 4.00pm at the Lekan Salami Stadium.
Other teams in Group C2A are Ilaji FC, Ogbomoso United, Cornerstone FC and Positive FC.
Matches in the group will hold between Wednesday May 3 and Thursday, May 11, 2023, with all the matches taking place at the Lekan Salami Stadium.
