Chairman of Dolphin, Wale Aboderin, said it was a match the First Bank team deserved to win.

“They did very well from the start of the competition to the end. They spent money on the team and they have great coaches. We also did well but we stood no chance this time.

“I am so proud of my team because to be in the final back-to-back is not easy. We are going to prepare better and work towards doing exactly what First Bank did to us today (Thursday).”
