Obuasi AshGold Football Club last Saturday displayed fantastic football and won decisively against returnees, the wonder club, Accra Great Olympics to perch at the second on the league table.
AshGold who are now sponsored by betting company, Betway proved that they were highly inspired and motivated by their commitment and discipline.
Backed by their loyal supporters who loved to be called Shafts, they took their favourite home grounds by storm and dished out a baptism of fire to the AGOSU lads.
The one-man symphony on the day was new signing from Medeama SC Hans Koffie, the offensive midfielder who punished Oly Gbogbo with three glorious goals to register the first hat trick of the 2016 /17 Ghana Premier League (GPL).
The newly Betway branded Len Clay Stadium will now be the attraction for Obuasi football fans and the men in yellow will always prove that they are resourceful in gold.
The victory should ginger the Miners to win their next game which is a tricky one.
After the Africa Cup in Gabon which was hailed as very successful, the local league organisers also want to exhibit their organizational skills.
Though there is no major sponsor for the GPL, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has been able to secure broadcast sponsorship from Chinese managed Star Times who have promised to give money to the FA and clubs as well as other stakeholders.
Star Times have made it possible for some matches to be shown live on TV and it is really good for other supporters of the competition and the clubs.
For AshGold, the Betway opportunity came at the right time, when the nation’s most popular player in England, and current SWAG Footballer of the Year Andre Ayew was signed by West Ham in London from Swansea in Wales.
Betway operations in Ghana promises to boost with the success of their partners and clients as well as customers.
