Not only do teams go onto the transfer market to sign on players and look out for coaches and backroom staff members, but also administrative personnel are now been sought after.

Premiership new boys, Kessben FC has appointed FA Executive Committee member, Randy Abbey to become the club's Executive Chairman.

The 34 year-old former management member of Hearts of Oak will name his management team early next week, he told the FA's official website.

“My immediate preoccupation is the organization of the club's structures for the coming season,” he exclusively told

The presence of Kessben FC raises the number of clubs in the premiership from the Ashanti region at least for now to four with two – Asante Kotoko and King Faisal also based in Kumasi.

However, the premiership's new boys are keen on playing at their own grounds in the region.

“We are working on our grounds at Abrankese around the Lake Bosomtwi area. We hope to complete work before August when the new season kicks off,” the club's Executive Chairman says.

With the high demands in the premiership, the club is planning to augment their stock as they seek to make an impression on their debut.

Randy Abbey says: “Twenty of our thirty-man squad would be retained while we bring on some new faces into the squad. But we would stick to thirty.”

Kessben FC, bankrolled by former Asante Kotoko Board member, Kwabena Kesse secured qualification to the elite division after the just ended zonal middle league from the national division one league.

Now, with the blend of the country's two traditional clubs - Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak in their fold, Kessben FC begin that tortuous journey.
