Published on: 11 December 2017

Newly-promoted Division One League side Accra Lions FC held their awards ceremony last Saturday, 9 December 2017.


The event was attended by players, coaching staff and other members of the football fraternity.

Lions were capping a fantastic season where they qualified to the second-tier league by winning all three matches in the Middle League playoffs.

They beat R-Stake FC 3-0 and followed it up with the 4-1 thumping of Emmanuel FC and the final match against Photizo ended in a 2-0 victory.

Here is a run down of all the award winners on the night.

Goalkeeper of the Year:

Frederick Asare: The young goalkeeper started the season as second choice but worked assidiously to emerge No.1.

He is a shot-stopper and very effective if he starts the attack with his perfectly weighted kicks.

Asare was also the second best Players' Player of the Season.

Goalking of the Year:

Abdul Sameed Adams: The diminutive man banged in the goals and for the Middle League he had three to his credit including the double against R-Stake FC.

Topscorer of the Year (including assists):

Promise Banini:

He was also third best in the poll for the Players' Player of the Season.

Players' Player of the Year:

Kofi Afriyie Asante: The enterprising left back was consistent throught out the season and rewarded by his teammates for his assertive performances.

He becomes the first player in the club's history to win the prestigious award.
