Need To Appoint A New Head Coach

At this critical moment,this wouldbreathe a new lease of life into the team with a revitalized technical direction,hence our proposed choice of Head Coach, isTom Marcus Christian Strand, a Swedish national with current coach Godwin Attram as assistant Coach/ player.

Tom Strand, 36, holder of UEFA licence A diploma in coaching, has a wealth of experience with considerable honors to his credit; he won the 2015 MTN FA Cup with Medeama SC and was awarded the best Coach of the same tournament. The Swedish coach was also the Head Coach of Bechem United during the 2013/14 season and was instrumental in bringing the Club from relegation to the 5th position in the Premiere League.

Coach Strand possesses special qualities for player development who groomed Augustine Okrah to become the most valuable player and GPL goal king, with the player becoming the most expensive player in Ghana transferred on loan to a foreign club.

Boosting the playing body: Acquiring additional quality players by GPL week 11

The exercise will come off next Wednesday, March 29, 2016 at the St. Thomas Aquinas School Park,10am prompt. This is a prelude to the main League transfer window which will open starting week 11, hence would urge all prospective players to take advantage of this soccer opportunity and become part of the “wonder club” family.
