Dolphins plan mass signings



Nigeria Premier League (NPL) club, Dolphins will sign eight new players ahead of the 2012/13 season.

The three-time NPL kings have already commenced preparations for the new season with the players retained for the new season training twice daily in Port Harcourt.

Manager of the club, Stanley Eguma said some of the eight players have already arrived Port Harcourt and have been training with the rest of the squad.

“We are looking at signing about eight new players for the new season. Some of the invited players have already started training with us while the others are expected to join us very soon,” he said.

Meanwhile the team will depart for Nnewi for their 2012/13 pre-season camping exercise.

Eguma said Calabar was also considered for the exercise with the management of the club eventually setting for the former.

“The two most important factors we considered were proximity and the comfort the venue will give to our players. We believe we will have the best possible preparation in Nnewi where concentration away from prying eyes, is expected to be at it’s maximum,” he said.

Dolphins escaped relegation on the final day of the 2010/11 season which they finished in 11th place with 50 points from 36 matches.
