Division Two side Emmanuel FC are hoping to continue their impressive form when they take on Police Nationals in the final of the maiden Jordan Anagblah Memorial Cup on Saturday, May 18 at the El-Wak Sports Stadium in Accra.
Emmanuel FC have been phenomenal since the competition began in March finishing at the summit of the Group 7A table after beating Rising Stars 3-0 in their final group game.
The team, coached by former Black Stars goalkeeper Richard Kingston, emerged the most impressive side after eliminating every opponent that crossed their part in the preliminaries as well as the semis.
On their way to the final, Emmanuel FC defeated BHOG 2-1 in the quarter-final before winning 4-3 on penalties against Hope for Future in the semi-finals at the Nania Park at Legon last Saturday.
On the other hand, Police National claimed a 3-1 victory over Charity Stars in the quarter-finals before winning 4-2 on penalties against Patron FC.
Ahead of the final game, Coach Kingston says his charges are ready to take the bull by the horn to emerge overall champions at the end of the game.
“This is the final so we will do everything possible to win the trophy. We have worked so hard to get here and we are going to work even harder to win the trophy,” he said.
The winner of the competition will receive GH₵1,500 as cash prize, trophy and souvenirs, first runners-up will take home GH₵1000 with souvenirs while the third place team will receive GH₵500.
The competition, organised by friends and colleagues of the late football administrator and coordinated by Mr Eugene Jacquaye, began with 64 Division Two clubs in the Greater Accra Region.
The tournament, sponsored by Nii Cudjoe and Associates law firm, is meant to honour Jordan Anagblah who held several positions in Ghana football until his untimely demise in 2012.
