Listen to article

Kpando, Oct. 14, GNA-Mr Joe Williams, an Accra based Businessman, has called on football enthusiasts in the Volta Region to form a supporters club for the Kpando Heart of Lions Football Club, the only soccer club playing the Kinapharma Premier League. He urged citizens of the region to make financial contributions towards the running of the club, adding that with financial and moral support the team would be one of the best in the country.

Speaking to the GNA Sports at Kpando last Sunday, Mr Williams said Heart of Lions, the only one from the region in the Premier Division must be supported to remain in the elite division. He, therefore, appealed the Chiefs and Members of Parliament in the region to pool their resources in support of the Club. "Let us forget about our political and tribal differences when offering our support to sustain the Club", he implored. Mr Williams further appealed to the Ministry of Youth, Education and Sports (YES) to rehabilitate the Kpando Stadium, which is in a deplorable state.

He expressed his gratitude to Miss Akua Sena Dansua, MP for North-Dayi, for using part of her MPs common fund to provide plastic chairs for use at the stadium. "We need shelter at the stadium, our Paramount Chiefs and other dignitaries who patronise league matches at the stadium are at the mercy of the weather, we need to help", Mr Williams said. Mr Williams urged the players to train hard in order to remain in top form always.
