The 2-0 Win By Jazzy Stars FC Over Nasarawa United Doesn’t Change The Status Of The Solid Miners,But Part Of Pre-season Positives For Us….. Solomon Babanja.


The Team Manager of Nasarawa United Football Club, Solomon Babanja has termed the 2-0 defeat suffered in the hands of NLO Division One clubside, Jazzy Stars Football Club as a welcomed development.

Solomon Babanja, the amiable and result oriented Team Manager of the Nasarawa State darling team, who praised the government of the day led by the Governor, Abdullahi Sule, and the club Chairman, Isaac Danladi for making this Pre-season tour to Plateau State a possibility as it afforded the technical crew led by Bala Nkiyu the opportunity of knocking the team into shape in preparation for the commencement of the new NPFL season.

In his words, “Am happy we lost, the lost has not changed us from the great Nasarawa United team we are it’s just a trip we embark upon for perfection and we have been able to see one or two loopholes. It also gave us the chance to give some new players opportunities to show what they can do. I must confess, Jazzy Stars FC is a very good team. Very young and daring.”

Solomon Babanja continues: “You can see that we are preparing well for the new season. The same Pre-season we played in Abuja before the commencement of last season of which we lost at the final to eventual champions, Plateau United, is the same Pre-season we still played into the final before we lost to FC Abuja via the lottery of penalties before heading to Jos where we played 7 friendly matches, losing only two to NPFL side, Wikki Tourists FC of Bauchi and academy side, Jazzy Stars of Jos, 0-1 and 0-2 respectively.”

He concluded: “Although we lost 0-1 to Wikki Tourists here in Jos, but we went to Bauchi State and beat Wikki Tourists 2-0 at their backyard. We are building a new team. With the mixture of some exciting young players on ground and the experienced ones, am assurring the lovers of Nasarawa United that we are going to do very well this coming season.”
