Dreams FC’s young player of the season, Montari Kamahini, says he is ready to make his mark in the elite division next season.

The 17-year-old left back was instrumental in the Dawu-based club’s qualification back to the Ghana Premier League as Division One League Zone Three winners.

Montari played every single minute of Dreams’ 30-match campaign in the second-tier league and was voted by his peers as the Best Young player of the Season in recognition of his remarkable exploits.

Despite the recognition, the budding defender insists he wants to improve upon his output and believes he can go all out to make a name for his club and for himself in the premiership.

"I hope to do more next season in the topflight although it will not be easy. I want to improve upon myself and do my best for the team. It will be tough in some games, especially for me as a young player but I am ready to go all out and make my mark," Montari told Graphic Sports.

"Personally, I dont think winning the Young Player of the Season award will put pressure on me even though I definitely know I will be the cynosure of all eyes. I just have to put the award behind me and play like nothing has happened, I have to continue doing my best and I know I can win more awards next season."

Montari, who captained club’s youth team, Still Believe FC, was among 12 players who were promoted by manager Karim Zito and former manager Charles Akunnor to the senior team respectively.
