Awoyemi disappointed over Remo Stars Federation Cup ouster


Remo Stars Football Club Captain Abiodun Awoyemi has expressed disappointment after his side were knocked out of the 2016 Ogun State Football Association Cup by Almar FC via penalties.

The Ogun State Champions won’t be defending their title this year as the quarter final tie witnessed a goalless draw after 90 minutes and they lost in the penalty shootout.

Awoyemi described Sky Blue Stars failure to progress as a bitter pill to swallow.

“It’s difficult to accept that we are out of the competition after the first game, we won this competition last year and we wanted to defend it once again and knowing this won’t make us play in the Federation Cup just makes everything hard to accept.

“We just have to let go, focus and prepare well for the only task ahead in the Nigeria National League and we have to reward ourselves with a better outing in the League.”

Remo Stars Football Club will not participate in the 2016 Federations Cup as the two finalists in the State Football Association Cup will be representing the state in the Federation Cup.
