Listen to article

Accra, Dec. 28, GNA - Wonder Club, Accra Great Olympics are beaming with confidence to record yet another historic victory over city rivals Accra Hearts of Oak to prove that the 3-0 bashing of the Phobians last weekend was no fluke. Olympics, now fighting hard to rejoin the Premier Division after slumping to division One two season's ago, pulled a shocking 3-0 win over Hearts during last weekend's President's Memory-Lane soccer match at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium but Hearts have dared the "Dade boys".

Mr Eric Afotey Odei, Chairman of Oly told a press conference in Accra ahead of the Nii Amugi Memorial Cup match between the two traditional clubs at the Ohene Djan Stadium on Sunday that the match is to prove to all Ghanaians that "we were not relegated on form but as a result of the inconclusive nature of the league." His comments were sharply rebuffed by Albert Commey, Deputy Public Relations Officer of Hearts who cautioned Oly of the saddened "Over confidence for it could proof dangerous for you".

At stake is a trophy, which would be brought from the UK on Saturday and an undisclosed cash prize to the winner. The Popular Stands would attract 10, 000 cedis, Osu/ May 9 Stands, 20,000 cedis, 30,000 cedis for the Upper Terrace while the Wings would go for 50,000 cedis.
