Despite the misfortune that has befallen Shooting Stars in the recent times, Aroka can authoritatively tell you Shooting can still boast of over 8 million fans world wide according to research we conducted in 2008 to determine the fan base of the Oluyole Warriors!
Some of these loyal fans were in Oshogbo this afternoon, cheering the team to victory over their host Osun United against all odds this evening in Oshogbo where the darling team of the South West pipped them by a lone goal scored in the 76th minutes by Ifegwu Ojukwu..
Shooting now tops group B2 of the NNL division with points having secured
Two successive away wins over Brillas Giants who also won away against Abia comets who made many home fans of the club doubted the seriousness of the team in returning to the elite division of the NPFL by playing a score draw in the opening game over their at the Lekan Salami’s stadium, Adamasingba Ibadan in April this year..
Though Shooting Stars redeemed their almost battered image by Abia commets when they pummeled visiting Bayelsa United by 3:1 to disappoint doubting “THOMASES” who had called for the heads of the entire team, management and technical crew for a shaky start in this year’s campaign to return the club to glory.
Meanwhile, Coach of the team, Agoye Edith Olumide in an exclusive interview with Aroka has given glory to almighty God for the success recorded so far and thanks all fans and foes for giving the team a chance to prove themselves..
He also thanked the management for the faith they had in him and his crew and promised that better days are still ahead if fans can give the team to evolve and reach their maximum potentials ..
