Bofoakwa Tano have made an impressive start in the ongoing Betpawa Premier League, one which has seen head coach of the Hunters, Frimpong Maanso and inspirational skipper, Saaka Dauda rewarded for their efforts with the pair clinching the Nasco coach and player of the month accolade respectively for the month September.
Bofoakwa Tano made their long awaited return to the Betpawa premier league in the on going season after missing out on Ghana’s elite division for 16 years. The Hunters marked their return into Ghana’s top flight with a hard earned point against Accra Great Olympics following their goalless draw at the Accra sports stadium.
However, Bofoakwa Tano have won the hearts of ardent followers of the Ghana Premier League as well as football lovers with the terrific atmosphere created at their home grounds in addition to their free-flowing football.
Their most recent game against Bibiani Gold Stars has been the only occasion the Hunters failed to clinch maximum points.
Under the stewardship of Frimpong Maanso, the Sunyani coronation park has witnessed massive victories against Real Tamale United (RTU) and Accra Hearts of Oak, which adds on to two away drawn games against Accra Great Olympics and Hearts of Lions, leaving the hunters undefeated in the on going premier season.
Mansoo’s undefeated run in the month of September has seen him take home the prestigious Nasco coach of the month accolade alongside his inspirational skipper, Saaka Dauda who netted two goals in the month of September including an important strike which helped them to defeat the Phobians. Undoubtedly, Dauda possesses unique qualities both on and off the field as his inspirational leadership adds up to his goal scoring threats.
Although there is a fair amount of games to be played, Tano Bofoakwa have made positive strides in their quest to stay up among Ghana’s elite teams and have further backed this assertion by being joint league leaders thus far in the 2023/2024 betpawa premier league season.
