“I am optimistic they will bounce back to winning ways in the second phase of the 2023 Ardova Handall Premier League.
“The defeats recorded in the first phase will help the team to identify their errors and work hard to make amends”, she explained to www.aclsports.com
Peter said, “Our inspiration for winning Benue Queens and Imo Grasshoppers was the fear of relegation. The team cannot afford to go back to Division One after gaining promotion for the second time.
“I always charge my team to do better and forget about the shouts from the bench. I make sure I encourage myself during and after games despite any mistakes.”
She appealed to the Bayelsa State Government to encourage the team ahead of the second phase.
She said, “My message to the State Government is for them to keep encouraging us as they have been doing and we promise to make them proud”.
Bayelsa Queens are currently 8th position on the women’s log at the end of the first phase of the 2023 Ardova Handall Premier League.
