The club’s Technical Adviser, Mohammed Baba Ganaru told Daily Trust in a telephone interview yesterday that 13 players have been given the nod to join the club in its campaign for honours in the coming soccer season.
Ganaru said the recruited players who are already in camp with the retained players, will be tested in some of the friendly matches lined up by the club in the state capital.
He also revealed that 13 players from last year’s squad were also given the green light to pursue their career elsewhere as they were surplus to the requirement of the club.
“We are already in camp preparing for the coming season and we have in our fold 13 new players to beef up our team, as you are aware we placed some of our players in the transfer market and some left for other clubs. All we are doing now is to see that we are able to blend the new players with the old ones as a team.
“I am happy with what we are doing, we are going to play some friendly matches here in the state capital to place the players in competition mood and possibly engage top Nigerian club sides before the kick-off date of the league. We are not going to rest till we get our target this season and the best way to start is with adequate preparations,” Ganaru explained.  
Ganaru, who was on the wanted list of top Nigerian premier clubs to head their technical crew at the close of last season, said he decided to remain with the solid mineral state team because of the better understanding with the club as well as his belief in continuity.
“I got good offers but you know money is not everything and I have worked here and have a better understanding with the people here, and for the sake of continuity I decided to remain in Lafia,” the former Kano Pillars sweat merchant said.
