History: How Ghana's first ever Women's League climaxed

Hasaacas Ladies captain Samira Suleman being handed Ghana's first ever Women's League trophy

Captain Samira Suleman was named best player of the entire season shortly after the game.

She smiled. She was tired. Happily tired. “I don’t know what to do now. I feel so…so excited. Being the best player in the first ever women’s league? I don’t know what to do. This calls for celebration.”

Yussif Ayoma: A full back full of potential

Yussif Ayoma

The first time I saw Yussif ‘’Yo-Yo” Ayoma, Liberty were playing RTU in Kumasi. It was an away game for the Dansoman boys, and they were up against a side that had mastered the art of failing. Ayoma was a small figure at right back. I had never seen him play. I remember being in the stands (I was one of about 50 people in the over 40,000 capacity Baba Yara Stadium) and listening to radio just so I could get most of the players names. I didn’t regret being at that game.
