A 4-0 bashing of already relegated First Bank FC of Lagos on Sunday ensured Go Round FC will play Nigeria Professional Football League Football (NPFL) football next season.

Shadrack Oghale got a brace and there was one goal each from Ekunta Etenfa and Nelson Esor to wrap up victory for Go Round FC over the hapless visitors.

But promotion to the NPFL would not come until Bayelsa United failed to win at Osogbo. When Chinedu Emmanuel scored in the 68th minute and the game subsequently ended 1-0 in favour of Osun United, it was time to party at Omoku.

Coach of First Bank and ex-international, Lukman Oshun said his players were demotivated having already been relegated and it was difficult to lift up their spirits.

“You know before now, the team was already relegated and the players were dejected. There was nothing they can do more than what they did today,” Oshun said.

Go Round FC captain, Nelson Esor described the match as a difficult game but was relieved it was eventually over with the promotion.

“I’m so happy. Too many joys in my heart. We started the league like underdogs. At the start of the season, I told you we would take every game as it comes. And today we have made the people of Rivers State proud. We have made the president of the club proud and we have made ourselves proud by getting a ticket to the NPFL. We give glory to God,” Esor said.

Go Round FC will now play in the top tier of the Nigerian league for the first time ever.
