Fans climb mast to watch Ibadan based club in action

Fans Shooting Stars who could not get into the stadium for their Sunday game, watched from a mast


It is something of a general notion that Nigeria Professional Football League is devoid of fanship and followers but this photo proves that is a lie.

Fans of NPFL club, Shooting Stars who could not get into the Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasinga, Ibadan had other means albeit dangerous to watch their darling team in action.

Some of the fans were seen in a photo standing and sitting on a mast while watching 3SC run riot on visiting Giwa FC on Sunday, July 12.

Ajani Ibrahim was the man of the match as he was a constant torn in the flesh of Giwa FC.

He scored twice before setting up another as 3SC trashed high flying Giwa FC.

Ajani opened scoring in the 25th minute who latched on a cross to score with an overhead kick after his initial effort was saved by Giwa FC goalkeeper.

Ten minutes before the break, Ajani doubled the tally as he side-footed a knocked down from Wasiu Jimoh after a freekick from Adeyinka Adedeji.

He turned provider before half-time with a looped ball for Olukokun to glance a header in for the third goal.

Both team however finished the game with 10 men as 3SC captain Izu Joseph and Giwa FC's Jimmy Ambrose were sent off for violent conduct.

Giwa FC's assistant coach was also sent to the stands for unruly conduct on the line.
