Sharks deny signing seventy players



Secretary of Sharks, Cyril Dum Wite has denied reports that the club currently have 70 players within their ranks.

Reports in the local media had claimed that coach Austin Eguavoen had expressed worry over the bloated number and had to consult with the Rivers State sports commissioner, Fred Igwe on how to prune the squad to a manageable number.

It was also reported that the reason for the huge number in the camp was down to "several interested parties" that wanted their players in the team.

Wite has now denied the reports and says Sharks are on course to have a good 2012/13 season.

“We do not have 70 players in our camp in Calabar. Those reports are untrue. Yes we had an open screening exercise as is our tradition. We will only register 35 players for the new season as we look to put smiles on the faces of our fans,” Dum Wite told supersport.com.

Sharks finished the 2011/12 season in 7th place on 52 points from 36 matches.
