"I am excited most especially with the crop of players that we will be fielding in the NNL. We have added a few number of players to the squad, and I believe they can help me achieve the target put before me which is to gain promotion to the NPL," he said.

Last weekend, Bolowotan unveiled their players for this campaign as well as home and away kits designed by OWU sportswear.

Among players unveiled by Bolowotan are five new players.

They include Shafaru Azeez (from Adamawa United), Newman Musa (from MFM), Sherif Alashe (from MFM), Innocent Nathaniel (from Kurtis FC) and Nwankwo Ugochukwu (from Lamb of God FC).
