Philip told www.aclsports.com that the squad is happy with the preparations adding that the team has been in closed camp for two weeks.
He said, “Confluence Stars (men) and Confluence Queens (women) will pose serious threats to other teams at the upcoming National Handball Division one league in Kaduna. We are ready for the league and the team has been working hard for the past two weeks in Abuja.
“We have done well. Training has not been easy: we have gone through some drills in camp, so we know the kind of training we have done”.
Philip said his target is to promote both teams to the 2020 Prudent Energy Handball League.
He said, “Kogi state belongs to the elite league and my target is to ensure we secure promotion to the 2020 Prudent Energy Handball League. We have players scattered across various elite clubs in Nigeria and it is time for us to also take the state teams there.
