We Have Great Potential At BYT – Bolanle Oshoba 


By Saheed Afolabi

BYT FC founder, Bolanle Oshoba has disclosed the team has a great potential after a fair outing at the Lagos FA Preseason Cup.

Speaking to ECHONEWS exclusively, Oshoba commended the Professional Ejigbo based club side for putting up a good fight despite been one of the youngest teams in the tournament.

He highlighted the needs of the team and their plans as they chase a promotion to the second tier of football in Nigeria from the third division.


“The Performance was highly commendable from a very young team where 90 percent of the players are between the real ages of 18 to 23. The first game was not so impressive, they still lost a couple of goalscoring chances and should have won but ended 0-0. The second game the team outplayed was As Racine infact we spent most of the first half in As Racine half and they did not have a single shot on goal. We lost a lot of scoring chances. The third game was our best game an evenly balanced for the large chunk of the game until the referees sabotaged the game with their controversial decisions,” he said.

“We have learnt that our players/team have great potential and would only get better. We have also identified the need to a get an experienced playmaker and striker.

“The club is putting together a Praise Jam scheduled for November 26 2023 at our home ground with top gospel artistes lined up. We are trying to build a strong fan base with a particular demographics and physiographic trends. We also aimed to chase promotion to the Nigerian National League again which is our immediate target and our long term target is to eventually play in the CAF competitions within the next 5 or 6 years as a premier league team with a well thought out plan.”
