Agboola Hails Magic Stars On NNL Promotion

President of Magic Stars FC, Kayode Agboola says it’s an incredible moment for his newly promoted Nigeria National League (NNL) team. Magic Stars, who defeated Ojodu City FC 5-3 on penalties in a keenly contested encounter at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasingba-Ibadan, secured promotion from the Nationwide League One (NLO), alongside First Bank, Kun Kahalifat, Basira FC, Barau FC, Igbajo United and Emalex FC. “I’m overwhelmed, grateful to Allah (God) for this feat, and excited with this good result.

“Both teams deserved to be in the play-off, when it comes to the penalty shootout, I don’t feel any pressure but for me, it’s thanks to God. “What an incredible moment for Magic Stars, great game, nobody gave us the chance to be here but in the end, we made history in our third season as a club,” said a delighted Agboola. Asked if his mission for the club has been achieved following the NNL promotion ticket.

“I know we have a lot of football talents in Nigeria and also know what it means to have such talent and not achieve one’s goal in life. That was my aim of setting up Magic Stars and I am happy they made me proud. “I want to congratulate the team as so much effort has been put in, from finishing unbeaten at the Legacy Pitch 1 Centre to crowning our efforts securing promotion,” he said.
