3SC coach, Edith Agoye, others resign over failure to secure NPFL promotion

Shooting Stars Sports Club, popularly known as 3SC, have been hit by a wave of resignation by top-tier staff.

Head coach of the club, Edith Agoye; general manager, Rasheed Balogun, and team manager, Dimeji Lawal, have all announced their resignation from the Ibadan-based club.

The resignations come after the Oluyole Warriors lost 3-0 to Akwa Starlets in a promotion match at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, on Monday.

The defeat means 3SC fail to secure promotion to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and consigns the club to another season in second-tier.

“We tried to get the (promotion) ticket in January in Aba, it didn’t happen. This time again in Asaba, it didn’t come. So having tried twice consecutively and were unable to get it done, it is important we stepped out for others to come in,” spokesman of 3SC, Tosin Omojola, said.
