Gombe upbeat ahead of new season



Gombe United midfielder, Sani Gidado, is convinced his club will take big strides forward next season.

The Savannah Scorpions were found wanting after a brilliant start last season, but Gidado believes all the structures are in place to start winning again.

He is satisfied with their level of confidence and has spoken well of the effort they are putting into training in order to produce consistent results next season.

"There's every reason to be confident as the coach (Maurice Cooreman) has put together a very strong team," he told supersport.com.

"Apart from Sanusi Sani, the key players from last season are still here and we have been complimented with some real quality additions.

"It is very important to have a squad that has strength in depth and I have been impressed by way we have played in training and in our friendly games.

"Cooreman has also introduced some new techniques to our training so I can tell you we are in high spirits and can't wait for the new season to get started," he gushed.

Gidado reckons that the experienced garnered from last season will enable them avoid losing focus and perform at a higher level in 2013.

"We've been working very hard to ensure we start very well, just like we did last season," he said.

"We have learnt a lot from the mistakes of the past and would do our best not lose concentration at vital moments, so we're looking forward to better campaign."

Gombe United finished 9th in the premier league last season.
