Team Manager’s Cup: Starlet Sure Of Victory


Chief Coach of Starlet Football Club of Ijesha, Athan Umoette, is confident that his  team will go all out for victory when they clash with Oshoboke Football Club in the  opening group match of Team Manager’s Cup.

The crucial encounter will hold this evening at the Olympic Football Pitch, Amuwo  Odofin, Lagos State.

Speaking ahead of  the encounter, Umoette boasted that his team are ready to defend  the title won last year, saying that anything short of victory in today’s encounter  will be a huge blow to their supporters.

“It is going to be a tough match because Oshoboke are a good team. I have seen them  play and we respect them. However, it will not be good if we start our opening match  on a shaky note,” he said.

The coach warned his players not to be complacent and challenged them to win all  their matches if they want to defend the title won last year.

The Match Coordinator, Saturday Okon, urged the participating teams to abide by the  rules and regulations of the game, saying that any club found wanting will be  sanctioned.
