thumbnail Hello,

The Yenagoa side have said the rumours that the club has folded up is not true

Nigeria Premier League side, Ocean Boys have debunked reports in the media that the club had pulled out of all football organised competition in the country.     
Ocean had failed to attend two Nigeria Premier League matches and are still in Yenagoa when they should have been in Bauchi to take on Wikki Tourists today.
Officials of the club have revealed that they can no longer cope with the financial burdens associated with playing in the league.                                       

The 2006 league champions' media officer, Eddy Ohis told Goal.com that no such information had emanated from the club and should be treated as mere rumour.  
Ohis admitted that top officials of the club met on Friday to review how the season has panned out but he opined that a statement has not been issued out to the press on the outcome of their meeting.                                     

The club's scribe however confirmed that Ocean Boys would make a statement on their involvement in the remaining league matches of the season in the next 48 hours or thereabouts.                                        
 "There nothing like that I can confirm to you. The club met yesterday to review the season in general but we have not made public the content of our meeting.

Ocean Boys has not issued out any statement as such and to us it is a rumour. But in the next 48 hours, the position of the club on the remaining matches of the season shall be made public," Ohis told Goal.com.                                             
Meanwhile, in a separate chat with a player of the club who said he wants to remain anonymous confirmed that Ocean Boys might have ended their league seasons even with three matches to the end of the season. The player opined that the players have  planned to boycott the rest of the league matches after a meeting with the club failed to yield any result.          

He said that the players vowed not to lace their boots for the club again until their entitlements of over seven seasons are part paid.                            
"We already made up our minds not to play again for Ocean Boys this season after the club's failure to pay us our owed money.
"We know it won't be easy getting our monies back but we are determined not to play again. I believe that informed their decision to pull out," the player explained to Goal.com in confidence.
