The brilliance of footballers, officials and media in the 2011/12 Glo Premier League would be rewarded on June 16 at this year's Glo Premier League Awards at the Georgia Hotel in Kumasi.

This year's event, which is the seventh, will see Chelsea's Edward Kpodo, Kotoko's Awal Mohammed and Rashid Sumaila of Dwarfs vying for the best defender prize.

Asante Kotoko's Soulama Abdulaye, Robert Dabuo of All Stars and Ernest Sowah of Chelsea are in contention for the Best goalkeeper award.  Emmanuel Baffour of New Edubiase, Daniel Nii Adjei, Kotoko and Chelsea's Emmanuel Clottey have been nominated for the Most Valuable Player prize.

The nominees for the Most Promising Player Award are Eli Agbeko, Mighty Jets, Joshua Oninku, Tema Youth and Kotoko's Baba Abdul Rahman, while Medeama's Bashir Hayford, Yaw Acheampong, Ashgold and Maxwell Konadu of Kotoko will battle for the Best Coach Award.

Edubiase forward Baffour, for hitting the back of the net 21 times, finished the top scorer, while Kudjoe Fianoo, Ashgold, K.K. Sarpong, Asante Kotoko and Obed Nana Nketia of Chelsea have been shortlisted for the Best CEO Award.

The Best Referee Prize has William Agbovi, John Atikese and Theresa Bremansu vying for honours with Dawood Ouedrago, David Laryea and AS Malik being shortlisted for the Best Assistant Referee Award.

Tema Youth, All Stars and Heart of Lions will sort things out in the Best Behaved Supporting group, while Ohene Agyei, Emmanuel Offei and Herbert  Semakor have been shortlisted for the Best PLB Cameraman Award.

Lenear Addy, Asante Boateng and M Arthur-Dadzie are the nominees for the Best Match Commissioner.

At the launch of the Awards ceremony in Accra yesterday, the PLB boss Welbeck Yaw Abra-Appiah congratulated the nominees and all who contributed to the success of the league, which ended last Sunday.

Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi described the just-ended league as the most competitive ever and urged the title sponsor, Glo Mobile Ghana, to be prompt in the payment of its financial pledge.

He also appealed to supporting sponsors Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited (GGBL) to come on board.
