“That plan is very much on course as despite dropping a few points at home, we have also gained some on the road.
“I want to use this medium to thank HIS Excellence Governor Inuwa Yahaya (Dan-Maje Gombe 1st) for the prompt funding of Gombe United and for the confidence reposed in me to steer the affairs of the club as General Manager.
“Special thanks to the players, technical crew and backroom staff as they have been professional on and off the pitch.
