Kumasi, Jan 18, GNA - Mr Mathew Osei-Poku, the First Vice-Chairman of the National Chapters Committee of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club in-charge of the Northern Sector has entreated supporters of the club to generate funds to support the Club's impending assignments.
He said that now that the club has annexed the CAF Confederation Cup, the supporters should assist management to stop the "no money" syndrome by making dedicated and meaningful contributions towards the team's CAF Champions league campaign.
Mr Osei-Poku said this in an address at a mammoth victory rally organised by the Chapter Nine Supporters Union in Kumasi to celebrate the club's recent conquest of the Confederation Cup.
The First Vice-Chairman advised the playing body and the technical bench not to be carried away by the recent victory chalked by the Club but to continue to work harder in order to beat Enyimba club of Nigeria for the Super Cup to brighten its chances of participating in the World Clubs' championship.
He commended the management, playing body and supporters for being committed to the cause of the Club and said there was the need for all stakeholders and genuine supporters to team up and explore possible avenues to enhance the team's development.
Mr Osei-Poku further challenged the Chapters to endeavour to increase their membership so as to strengthen the financial base of the Club.
Mr Kwaku Adusei, the Deputy Public Relations Officer of the Northern sector, urged the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to organise refresher courses for local coaches, since Sir Cecil Jones Attuquayefio, Hearts head coach had demonstrated that with the proper motivation and incentives, Ghanaian coaches were capable of winning laurels for the country.
