Speaking to the press after theirgoaless game against Kotoko in their premier league opener, the middle-aged coach, who qualified the former premier side from Division One was optimistic that Oly has come to stay. According to coach Augustt, his target is to finish the season among the first four who will represent the nation in Africa next year. "What you saw this afternoon is an indication of our readiness to take our place as one of the giants in Ghana soccer" The coach gave the assurance that the best is yet to come from the Wonder Club, "circumstances forced us into relegation, but we are back to prove a point this season and the subsequent years"

He pointed out that he was impressed about his side's performance against a side that is in contention for this year's CAF Champions League. "The undulating-nature of the field notwithstanding, we held our o pponents and operated effectively in all departments of the game" Coach Augustt said.

Their free-flow game coupled with excellent defensive network, earned them the admiration of the well-attended crowd that thronged the Ho Park last Sunday. Oly slipped into relegation last two seasons in the PLB novelty league, but remained focused with an impressive showing and returned just a season in Division One despite losing key performers like Amui Quaye, Joe Tagoe and Kobina Dordzie to Kade Hotspurs, Hearts of Oak and Kotoko, respectively.
