The Ghana women’s Premier league will kicks off this weekend with four meetings. Sixteen teams are geared up for action in the Northern and Southern Zone. With lots of expectations been swirling round the grounds in anticipation, here is a quick preview of the Northern Zone.
Kumasi Sports Academy Ladies will host Ampem Darkoa ladies at the Ejisu Community Park in Kumasi. The last time these two sides met, goals from Joyce Larbi and Patience Biamah saw them splitting points. The home side.
Prisons Ladies and Supreme Ladies will meet at the Sunyani Coronation Park.
Prisons Ladies arguably has one the most experienced squads in the competition with Juliet Acheampong in the heart of midfield and Azume Adams in post. A thin light of hope hangs around Coach Joyce Boaitey’s Supreme Ladies as top striker Sandra Owusu Ansah makes a return to the league. This after some few years of absence following her exploits outside the shores of Ghana.
Ashtown Ladies boss Alex Kamara will be hoping to get a full complement of his squad after the long break in the bid to overturn his side’s unimpressive performance in the previous season. Midfield gem Grace Acheampong is expected to partner with Joyce Antwiwaa Fenteng. Northern Ladies, the away side have had a decent record against Ashtown Ladies. With the biggest win being a 6-0 walloping in the 2019/20 season. Rahama Jafar, the goal orchestrator for Northern Ladies looks even more lethal and poised for action. While her compatriot and captain, Doris Akaheeh Afafa is raring to get the new campaign underway.
Home advantage could play in favor of Pearl Pia Ladies on match day 1. As they welcome Fabulous Ladies to the Tamale Utrecht park. ‘‘The soccer ladies’’ have been busy on the market making some key additions to their squad. This is ahead of the season with the return of Alice Kusi after her exploits on the international front.
