Nasarawa United
The club has finally admitted that the financially crisis that rocked the side in its dismal Premier League campaign last term was the major reason for its being relegated to the National Division I League also referred to as the Nigeria National League (NNL). But the admission by the officials of the club is coming late as several players have dumped the side for the coming season for other clubs. However, the players and officials are still being owed outstanding debts that includes signing-on fees, match bonuses and salaries.

With the club now confirmed to start life as a National Division I League side next season, it opened its pre-season camp on August 3 but the exercise started at a low ebb. As at the weekend, only 15 players turned out for the pre-season training at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) Football Club, according to the club’s spokesman, Olusola Alao. The number of players in the Jos club’s camp is expected to improve with some of them promising to turn up this week to take part in the pre-season programme.

Delta Force
The truth behind the disbandment of the National Division I League side has been revealed after all. The decision to put up the club for sale by the Delta State government had drawn mixed reactions in the state, as some people believes that it had a political undertone. But the decision, it was learnt, was necessitated because the state, which is the financier of the club, has so much projects at hand and would want to concentrate on funding just one club. Delta Force has since been put up on sale.
