ABS apologise for relegation, Shooting Stars await League decision.

Shooting Stars await ruling on relegation fate
ABS FC have apologized to their fans after they got relegated from the Nigeria Professional Football League on the final match day, but Shooting Stars believe there is still something to hope for.

ABS needed to win in Lafia against Nasarawa United then hope for other results to go their way to escape the drop but eventually they lost 2-1 to the hosts who were not in any way benevolent.

Director of Football of the club, Alloy Chukwuemeka in a statement released on Monday apologized to fans of the club, saying, relegation was not part of what the club bargained for at the start of the season.

He added that although the club started the season on a bright note, they were later affected by what he called “the usual Nigeria football environmental factors”.

Chukwuemeka however expressed hope that with the solid football management structure in his club, they would make a quick return to the premier League next season.

"With our sustainable football management structure I can assure you that we will bounce back to the NPFL soonest because that is where we belong.

"The objective of our proprietor, Bukola Saraki, for the club was to give young boys a lifeline through football.

"We have been able to achieve this as we had three of our victorious NPFL/LALIGA U-15 Promises boys playing in the main team now.

"Few of the other young players we discovered may also move on to bigger clubs too.

"The beauty of it is that we have plenty talents in Kwara and Nigeria in general and we will discover more when we start the season," Chukwuemeka said.

Chukwuemeka apologised to the fans for the embarrassment brought them with the relegation but assured them the team will bounce back sooner than expected.
