AshGold players happy after Medeama

Friendlies: Ashantigold beat Achiken FC as Aduana continue fine run

League Champions AshantiGold continued their preparations for the CAF Champions league clash with Mo Bejaia with a convincing 3-0 win over promoted Division One League side Achiken FC.

The Miners, who have failed to impress in pre-season after failing to win a match in the G6 tournament and a defeat against Bechem United last weekend, opened the scoring in the 34th minute through Emmanuel Osei.

The attacker fired home a rebound after new signing Isaac Amoah saw his attempt fail to enter the net.

Amoah was however not to denied a second time when he tapped in an effort from close range on the stroke of half time.

Shafiu Mumuni rounded the victory for the Miners when he headed home an Emmanuel Nti Mensah cross on 78 minutes.

AshantiGold’s next encounter will the Super Cup clash against FA Cup holders Medeama SC in Accra.

In Sunyani, Aduana Stars continued their fine run of form in the pre-season with a 2-1 win over regional rivals BA United.

The 2010 league champions scored both goals through new boys Yahaya Mohammed and Zakaria Mumuni.

Aduana have been tipped to excel in this season’s league after having one of the best recruitment ever in the history of the club.
