Ocean Boys embark on indefinte strike action

The Yenagoa side are on strike action to demand for the debt owed them

In a bid to show how serious they are to their demands for the management to pay them their allowances and sign on fees, players of Ocean Boys have embarked on an indefinite strike action.

The players have decided to boycott their Week 31 league match against Kano Pillars.

 The players informed Goal.com that they would not return to Yenagoa until something tangible is done to their outstanding salaries and sign on fees that have accumulated beyond comprehension.              

"We are on strike and have vowed not to have anything to do with the club again until our entitlements are paid. The season is almost coming to an end and nothing has been said about our debts which have gone up to the extent that it would take a lot of money to settle all the arrears.

"We are not happy at the way things are going in the club so to make a change we embarked on the strike action.           

“We don't know how long the strike action will last but something is sure, we are not going to play any match at all until we get a substantial part of our outstanding arrears," a player of the 2006 league champions who preferred to remain anonymous told Goal.com.

Ocean Boys are in the relegation zone with just 29 points from 28 matches and they risk demotion into the lower division next season if the current problem is left unresolved before the next round of matches on Wednesday.
