Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s coach Steve Polack says he is impressed with the performance of his boys in their 1-0 victory against Proud United last Sunday and believes the victory signals the beginning of a turnaround for the traditional giants.

The Porcupine Warriors defeated the second-tier side 1-0 in an MTN FA Cup Round of 32 clash at Agona Swedru and Polack, who took over the affairs of the club just two weeks ago, believes the slim win is a sign of good things to come. He has, therefore, called on all hands to be on deck as they seek to build a competitive side for the second round of the Premier League beginning Sunday against Tema Youth.

Ashantigold coach, Charles Kobla Akonnor, says the club is keen on avoiding relegation from the Premier League when the second round resumes this Sunday with a visit to champions, Wa All Stars.

Akonnor believes that strengthening the team ahead of the second round of the top flight could prove positive in ensuring they maintain their place in the league.

Accra Hearts of Oak defensive midfielder Thomas Abbey believes he will make the final squad for the 2018 CHAN qualifiers and WAFU tournament to be hosted by Ghana in September despite receiving late call-up to the Black Stars 'B' camp alongside Medeama’s Justice Blay and Musah Nuhu of WAFA.

Abbey, 24, has been phenomenal for the Phobians this season, scoring seven goals with three assists. His exclusion from the squad named last week sparked off a debate among football fans, but he is now expected to join his teammates in camp today at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence at Prampram.

 

Three players have been called up to join the Black Stars 'B' camp when the team resumes camping at the Ghanaman Soccer Center of Excellence in Prampram.

Thomas Abbey (Hearts of Oak), Musah Nuhu (WAFA) and Justice Blay(Medeama) will all join the team as they resume training on Monday at 4pm.

Boxing

Mr Anthony Kermah, the Chief Executive Officer of Landmark Promotions, believes there is the need for a paradigm shift in the way boxing is run in Ghana, if it is to come out of its current poor state.

 

The first Vice president of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA), Dr Reginald Kpakpo Hansen-Thompson, has told the Graphic Sports he withdrew his nomination to contest the position of vice president of the boxing regulatory body again to concentrate on other important roles within the boxing regulatory body.

According to the 62-year-old royal, he was influenced to rescind his decision also because of a move to make him a Life patron of the GBA which is a very respectable and influential role within the boxing fraternity.

The Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) has set up a fund to solicit for financial support for Isaac Aryee, a boxer who sustained various degrees of injury when he was allegedly knocked down by a police vehicle about three weeks ago.
