NWFL Super 6: Bayelsa Queens Will Bounce Back Vows Coach

Bayelsa Queens manager, Moses Aduku has said his team will bounce back from their poor display at the 2021 NWFL Premiership Super 6.

The ‘Gloryland’ girls were top of the log during the season, before the league was stopped for the Super 6 and Aduku who won the league title for Bayelsa Queens in 2018 told www.thenwfl.com that his team will be a stronger and better next season.

No doubt, it wasn’t a good tournament for us, we didn’t start well and that affected us as a team. We sincerely want to appreciate the Government and good people of Bayelsa for their support and of course the management and all the fans that came here to support us at the Super 6.

“Next season is going to be better for us. We hope to get it right and continue with a very strong mentality. It’s painful that we started playing well very late in the competition and sometimes these things happen. I am proud of the players, despite the unexpected results, we shall continue to work hard to come back stronger next season.” He concluded.
