Members of the Black Maidens Management Committee have resolved to focus on securing sponsorship, ensuring visibility for the team and general well-being of the players ahead of their upcoming FIFA U-17 World Women's Cup qualifiers.
The committee, led by its Chairman Nana Oduro Sarfo took the decision last Wednesday at a meeting held at the offices of the Ghana Football Association in Accra.
After their deliberations, Nana Sarfo Oduro later led the management team to visit the players and their technical handlers at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram where the team is camping in preparation for the qualifiers.
The management committee used the occasion to fraternize with the ladies and encouraged them to keep working hard to lift high the flag of Ghana during the qualifiers. They presented food items and assorted drinks to the players and their technical handlers.
The Vice Chairman of the Committee, Dr Benjamin Taylor as well as the members – Gifty Oware-Aboagye, Benjamin Nana Benyi Eyison, Simon Ehomah and Asamoah Boakye were present during the visitation at Prampram.
