We also agreed that there would be no screening but we shall promote two players from the feeder team, look for three players around Delta State because the talents are there for us to harness. We have invited five players to beef up some areas and discussion is on with them at present,”

He said the names of the new recruits would be released at a later date.

Meanwhile, management also agreed to resume camp in early January.

“We took all these decisions in the best interest of the Club and in view of the task ahead as we want to avoid the mistakes of the past. The most important thing is that we have a team on ground to prosecute any of the assignments,” Owumi said.
