Dolphins of Port Harcourt have added an astonishing thirteen players to their squad in the mid-season transfer window, the club confirmed in a release on Thursday.
Two of the new players were from Glo Premier League clubs, while the rest were signed from amateur sides and football academies. One of them, Amakiri George, was unattached.
George had played for Ocean Boys and was last on the books of Sharks in 2012.
Perhaps the biggest name added to the side is Oduokpe Oghogho of Bayelsa United.
Oghogho played for Sunshine in the 2013/14 season, scoring against Dolphins in Port Harcourt.
Other players signed are Ebitimi Agogo from Bayelsa United and Amakiri George, who last played competitive football with Sharks three seasons ago.
Dolphins coach Stanley Eguma says the club have done their best to strengthen the club as the fight to move out from the relegation area intensifies.
“It’s not a one-man show. It’s a club. Every department must work. We did not have money to get players but I have done my best to get these ones,” Eguma said.
“We will keep working hard and will not go on relegation.”
Five of the new players already had their debuts against Abia Warriors in Port Harcourt on Match Day 22.
Oghogho Oduokpe, Ebuka Nnebue and Godwin Obinze started the game against Abia Warriors, while Ebitimi Agogo and Abia Israel were second half subs.
