NPFL: Shooting Stars sack 17 players


Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan have dropped 17 players in the on going Nigeria Professional Football Season (NPFL) season.

This is part of efforts to reposition the team for optimal performance.

The club’s spokesman, Tosin Omojola, disclosed in a statement on Thursday that the development was in a bid to strengthen their squad for improved results.

“The players were dropped after a review of the team’s performance in the ongoing 2021/2022 season,” he said.

The team has struggled to impress on its return this season to the NPFL which has bothered the club’s management and the team’s fans.

3SC have had an indifferent run in the competition so far, with 20 points from five wins, five draws, and seven losses in 17 matches. They have scored 16 goals conceding 18 to stay in 13th position in the 20-club competition.

“The affected players were released after the club’s technical crew painstakingly reviewed their performances, which fell short of expectations,” Omojola stated.

He said four of the players, namely Tambe Charles, Anas Mohammed, Abubakar Adeyemi, and Anene Francis, were with the team for more than two seasons.

The club spokesman said the remaining 13 players were among those recruited before the kick-off of the season.

”These players include Egorde Oghenetega, Ebenezer Odeyemi, Wasiu Alalade, Kola Daniel, Yusuf Habeeb, Olumide Henry, and Kehinde Adedipe. The rest are Olasunkanmi Quadry, Amusan Taiye, Adelani Seun, Onwubuche Chimankpa, Wellington Ehiabhi and Meshack Amos,” he said.
