Head coach of Halifax Ladies, Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo, has expressed her team's readiness to write their names in gold at the end of the Normalisation Committee Women's Special Competition.

Halifax suffered 1-0 defeat to Police Ladies in their opening Group D game played at the Teshie MATs Park. However, Coach Mercy Tagoe and her charges came back stronger winning three games on a trot and drawing one to secure a place to the quarter-finals, with a game to spare.

In an interview, the former FIFA referee said: "My girls are poised and determined to make history for themselves. Basically, the strategy is exactly what you have seen today."

"It is all about determination and dedication. You need to have passion for what you are doing. We have stayed at home for quite a long time and everybody is eager to play football. So as we all know, it (special competition) came to meet us and we are happy to play," she added.

The Tema-based club won 1-0 against Samaria Ladies in their second group game, battered Immigration 2-1, claimed 3-1 victory over Police and drew 0-0 with Samaria to pick a slot to the next round of the competition.

Halifax are now placed second on the table with 10 points, two shy of Police Ladies. They will welcome Immigration Ladies to the Tema Community 8 Park on Wednesday in their last Group D fixture.
