Ocean Boys now Divine Warriors FC



NNL side, Ocean Boys will campaign in the 2012/2013 league season as Divine Warriors FC of Yenagoa.

An official of the Brass-based side, Asein Ohis who said the new name has received the nod of the NNL management explained that the change of name will quicken the recovery from the trauma of the last season in the NPL.

"Ocean Boys will now be known as Divine Warriors FC of Yenagoa. NNL has given their approval for the change in name.

"We want a fresh start in the league as well as quick return to normalcy as the name Ocean Boys remind us of the pains we went through last season.

"The new name will help our course and make people to treat and respect us as we are not as we were," he said to supersport.com.

NNL has acceded to the side earnest request for the postponement of their season's opening game against Abia Comets in Umuahia.

Though the Brass-based side requested for shift of their first two matches NNL granted them one week extension.

The Divine Warriors will now kick-start their season next weekend against Bolowotan FC at the Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa.

Ohis said his side are grateful to the NNL for their understanding.

"We asked for two matches postponement and we're granted one week shift. It is fine by us and we must thank the league body for their understanding.

"The one-week grace will be enough for us to be fully prepared for the league hostilities," he said.
