Head coach of Nigeria Correctional Service, Adamu Nitte told www.aclsports.com that the Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Spikers are beatable.
Nitte disclosed this after his team defeated Kwara United VC 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-21) in their second match at the ongoing 2023 National Division 1 League in Owerri on Wednesday.
Nitte said he is not intimidated by the calibre of players paraded by CNS Spikers stressing that they are not new players in the volleyball fraternity.
He said, “I am not intimidated by the firepower of the CNS Spikers; there is no new player on the team. The players are known to me and when we face each other on the court, the game will be determined after two hours.
“Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) is here to win every match because this is to test our strength ahead of the elite league. I am satisfied with the level of performance displayed by the players but there is room for improvement.”
The FIVB Level 2 coach said Nigeria Correctional Service is eager to return to the Nigeria Volleyball Premier League where they belong.
He said, “I feel great and happy to record my second win; glory be to God. We got relegated to the National Division 1 League last year and the team is trying its best to return to the Premier League. The two wins are a morale booster for the team.
“Nigeria Correctional Service is going to recruit players not to play but for work. The service does not want to borrow players any longer so that they can earn a living through volleyball.”
Commenting on the improvements in participation, Nitte said, “I am happy young children want to play volleyball in Nigeria; it means we are making progress. A few years from now, the country will be flooded with quality players because we are witnessing enough championships across the country”.
