3SC Management Appeal for Calm from Supporters
The management of Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan has appealed to supporters of the club to remain calm despite a poor start of the club in the ongoing Nigeria National League 2018/2019 season.
The Oluyole Warriors commenced their campaign for promotion to the elite league on a shaky note after they were held to a 1-1 draw by visiting Abia Comets of Umuahia, in a Nigeria National League (NNL) Match Day One encounter decided at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan.
Expectedly, the result did not go down well with some of the club’s fans who openly showed their displeasure over the outcome of the encounter.
The management in a release by the media officer of the club, Tosin Omojola, expressed unhappiness with the result even as it appreciated the fans for their concern but appealed to them to believe in the team.
“We want to use this medium to apologise to our teeming fans over our inability to secure the maximum points against Abia Comets”.
“We can understand their feelings, they expected victory from us but we failed to deliver, so their reaction, we know was borne out of their love for the club.”
“On behalf of the players, we are sincerely sorry and we want to assure them that our dream of making it back to the premier league is still alive,” the release stated.”
The management further called for calm from the fans, saying that the team will return to the drawing board immediately ahead of the next game which is an away trip to Giant Briller in Enugu.
“Our fans should be rest assured of our determination to secure a promotion ticket at the end of the season, we are not going back on this promise, Wednesday’s result notwithstanding. We will make it up for them in the next match”, concluded the release.
