.As Adebajo Babes Tackle Gateway In NNL Showdown In Abeokuta
Just as last weekend’s first home match between Stationery Stores of Lagos and Abia Comets recorded a large turnout of spectators at Onikan Stadium, Coach of the Lagos darling team, Taiwo Eneagwa believes more fans would come out to watch their away match against Gateway United in Abeokuta on Saturday, 22 February.
The visibly happy coach described the return of the ‘Adebajo Babes’ to the Nigerian League as a good omen, saying; “We could not do much in our first match in Lagos, but Stores will play a tight match against Gateway. Our plan is to win the match, that’s the best way to make our fans happy”.
It was observed that the Stores/Abia Comets encounter recorded the highest turnout of spectators amongst the matches played on Day 1 of the NNL new season.
There were also high turnout of spectators at venues in Benin City, Remo, Calabar, Uyo, Minna, Lokoja, Abuja and Umoku in Rivers State.
The management of Stores made a kill at the gates as the club realized huge sum of money from gate-takings, as thousands of their fans paid their way to watch the team tango with Abia Comets FC in the highly advertised encounter.
Captain of Stores, Ayo Filani is excited about the huge followership. He urged his teammates to work hard during their matches, stressing that; “The fans will not take it lightly with us if we don’t play well. I’m also hoping that we get a good result in Abeokuta on Saturday”.
