3sc back to Premier league


Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan has returned to the Nigerian Professional Football League four years after dropping to the Nigeria National League.

The Oluyole Warriors who had been knocking on the door of the topflight league since 2018 finally achieved their dreams after failing at the play-off stages twice.

They began their quest for promotion in the NNL Super 8 play-off with a 2-1 win over Bendel Insurance before playing a 1-1 draw against Remo Stars in the match day two, and on Saturday afternoon, they made a mockery of Ekiti United lashing them 6-0 to cement their status in the NPFL for next season.

A brace for Gafar Olafimihan, one a piece for the quartet of Chinedu Enuademu, Najeem Olukokun, Anthony Okachi, Najeem Olukokun (PK) did the job for Shooting.

Also Niger Tornadoes and Gombe Utd made it to the Nigeria Professional Football League for 2021/2022 football season.
