Amasaman (GAR), May 13, GNA - The Executive and management board of Isaab Football Club of Mayera in the Ga West District of the Greater Accra Region is sponsoring seven of the Club's Under-12, 14 and 17 players as well as the team manager to complete their Junior Secondary School (JSS) education.

The players are made up of Kofi Adolf, Samuel Amartey, Daniel Mensah, Mesiva Agbenyagah, Kwasi Boateng, Stephen Abedu, Ali Mama and Mr. Saa Mensah, the team manager.

Mr Joseph Adjoteye, Director of the Club told the GNA Sports in an interview at Amasaman after a meeting organised to discuss the way forward for the team and the players welfare.

The Director who is also the Ga West District Structural Engineer said the gesture was the management's decision to encourage the players to improve and combine their sporting activities with their academic performance.

Mr. Adjoteye said the sponsorship would be awarded to the players in batches every three years to ensure that most of the youth of the area benefit from formal education and make use of their spare time with sproting activities.

In a friendly football match to run off the occasion, the Under-12 side of Isaab F/C beat El-Moya of Darkuman Official Town 2-0 at the Adusah Park near Amasaman.
