A football match between Asamoah 11 and St. Francis College of Education (FRANCO) teams (both made up of students of the college with few selected players from town) has gone in favour of the former who won 4-2 on penalties.
The Asamoah 11 team drew goalless (full time) with the FRANCO team who proved tough opponents resulting in the penalty shootout.
Asamoah 11, motivated by the presence of the General Captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan and his fans who constantly gingered the team, managed to hand their opponents a bitter sweet defeat.
The match which came off on Thursday, May 30, at FRANCO Sports Stadium in the Hohoe Municipality of the Volta Region was to honour Asamoah Gyan who got enstooled as development chief in the area (Gbi Traditional Area).
The enstoolment of Gyan as Ngoryifia Dormenyotor (meaning ‘Kind-hearted, Progressive Chief) took place in a colourful ceremony on FRANCO campus earlier in the day.
The installation was in recognition of the Ghanaian international’s benevolence to St. Francis College through the provision of a Gh¢15,000 mechanised borehole water system to the college, thus, solving the perennial water crisis in the school which is his mother’s alma mater.
Togbe Ngoryifia Dormenyotor, according to a release signed by his manager, Samuel Anim Addo prior to the enstoolment, said the gesture was to honour his (Gyan) mother, Mama Cecelia Love as “this intervention was made easier by the memories of my mum who was a student in this school.”
