Eguma Sets Continental Target For Dolphins

With Dolphins Football Club preparing to feature in the Premier League, its head coach, Stanley Eguma, has declared that he would not mind starting his first season after returning to the top-flight by picking a continental ticket.
According to the former Kwara Unite coach, he wants to focus on guiding his side to a place in one of the continental club competitions.
But the former Sharks Football Club knows the challenge his side is likely to come up against when the Premier League campaign begins next season across the country.
The Dolphins FC handler also pointed to Warri Wolves’ achievement as an example to his side’s ambition.
“I believe that we are capable of winning a ticket to the continent next season. Though we are newcomers to the Premier League, we know we can do so because if a club like Warri Wolves was able to win a place on the continent then nothing is impossible. I know that the challenge of achieving this target would be big, but we are ready for it,” he said.
Eguma reminded that Dolphins FC is not totally a greenhorn in featuring in the top-flight of the game after the side won the title in the 2004 season.
He believes that life at the lower league since 2007 has toughened the side ahead of the coming season, as his side is rearing to compete with its opponents next term.
“We have had our ups and downs in the National Division I League. Now we are back in the Premier League and we are ready to dig out with the best clubs in the country. So we should not be seen as newcomers though we are new in the coming season. Remember we have won this title before and we are capable of holding our own when we start,” he said.
