Coach of JVC of Bauchi Volleyball Club, Monday Dada has set his sights on promotion to the Nigeria Volleyball Premier League.
Dada disclosed this to newsmen in Kaduna after recording 3-1 (25-23, 25-21, 28-30, 25-22) over Oyo state at the ongoing 2021 National Division 1 Volleyball League in Kaduna state on Wednesday.
He said the JVC of Bauchi have shown they belong to the Premier League and have the quality playing personnel to make their goal of competing in the big leagues a reality.
“JVC of Bauchi is in the Division 1 league to gain promotion to next season’s premier league because that is where the big guns are and that is what we are aiming for. We do not expect anything asides from getting the ticket,” Dada said.
He expressed satisfaction in his players’ performance against Oyo state on Wednesday and took responsibility for their shock loss to Kwara state the day before.
“I feel happy winning 3-1 against a young Oyo state side because we worked hard for the result and we thank God for the victory recorded.
“Losing to Kwara United on Tuesday was a technical error from my side but we did our best considering the situation we came. I believe my boys played very well but it was my fault we lost but I am working on it and we are going to get on top on this matter.”
