La Beat Ada To Qualify In McDan Ga Adangbe Unity Cup
Host community, La beat new entrants Ada by two goals to zero in the opening match of the 2017 Ga Adangbe Unity Cup sponsored by McDan Group of Companies.
Maxwell Quaye made the news again with his two first half goals for La in a game that attracted a large crowd at the La Town Park.
With La being captained by hardworking local Black Stars skipper Isaac Twum, who won the MVP at the recent Fox WAFU Tournament, and other skillful rising stars, there was no way they were going to lose to Ada who paraded some third division players.
Isaac Twum told journalists after the match that such community sports initiatives can unearth stars and give opportunities. He commended Dr. Dan Mackorley for supporting the event as the people of Ghana love sports and appreciate peace, love and unity.
Dr. Mackorley who witnessed the game praised the organisers and the standard of play. He promised the people something wonderful in the near future. He urged the people of La to expect something big to boast sports promotion and development.
It would be recalled that last year, he promised to give the La community an astro turf sports facility.
