List of scorers after Round 8:

Morou Zakari 2, Atta Kusi 1, Bright Lukeman 1, Mawuli Tuglo 1.

Player information:

U-20 World Cup-winning goalkeeper Daniel Agyei (born 10.11.1989) is still regarded as one of the brightest goalkeeping-prospects in Ghana but is apparently out of form. The first-choice for the current team of Ghana U-20, James Akwasi Acheampong (born 30.11.1991) has actually been preferred some matches this season. Liberty recently signed veteran Osei Boateng (born 19.05.1981), formerly of King Faisal and Ghana A, so it is fair to say that competition for the number one shirt is hard. David Addo (born 07.09.1982) is a strong central defender. The same can be said about Michael Annan (born 12.10.1985), formerly of Great Olympics, Power FC Koforidua and Tema Youth FC. Richard Afful (born 30.12.1987) is a former attacker who also can play at left-back. Daniel Gyamfi (born 28.09.1984) is a versatile defender, mostly used in the center of the defense. Talented Atta Kusi (born 25.10.1992) is currently first choice at right-back. I wrote about left-back Francis Morton (born 05.11.1992) on 26.10.2010. Defender Ofoe Ofotsu (born 20.12.1989) played a couple of matches back in 2008-2009 but did not feature last season. Christopher Nkansah (born 01.01.1990) is a central midfielder. Hard-working midfielder / right-winger Isaac Donkor (born 16.11.1991) was a regular for Ghana U-20 in 2008 and 2009 and is currently one of the stars of Liberty, perhaps together with left-winger Ghandi Kassenu (born 09.08.1989) who is on the radar of several European clubs. Bright Lukeman (born 04.03.1988) can also fill in as a playmaker. Liberty recently brought striker Mark Adu Amofah (born 07.07.1987) to the club. A man with a reputation for scoring goals, who has played professionally for Bloemfontein Celtic FC (South Africa), Sønderjysk Elitesport (Denmark) and Beitar Shimshon Tel Aviv (Israel). Kevin Kouakou Kouadio is one of very few Ivorians in Ghanaian football. A striker that has been with Liberty for three seasons. Liberty has two exciting players from Guinea on its books – Naby Capi Soumah and Fodé Moussa Sylla. Sylla is a striker and Soumah a tall midfielder / support man. Both are formerly of Horoya AC and joined Liberty in the middle of 2009-2010. Soumah scored six goals and Sylla five goals and signing the two players was undoubtedly a stroke of genius.  Mawuli Tuglo (born 02.10.1989) is a promising striker that has struggled to score regularly the last seasons. Loaned out to Great Olympics in the second half of 2009-2010 but failed to save them from relegation. The creative force of Liberty Professionals FC is arguably attacker Morou Zakari, a Togolese international player. Formerly of Gomido FC from Togo. Liberty has used several players unknown to me this season, including Isaac Amoah, Aminu Yakubu and Yakubu Issah.


List of scorers after Round 8:

Aaron Amoah 2, Stephen Adams 1, Yahaya Mubarak 1, Kofi Owusu 1.

Player information:

Abubakari Yakubu Banda is the goalkeeper of Mighty Jets. Abdul Rahman Baba is a tall left-back. Central defender Isaac Boudong (born 20.11.1987) played for Gamba All Blacks FC in 2007-2008 and Liberty Professionals FC in 2008-2009. Defenders Yussif Faisal, Emmanuel Laryea and Yakubu Iddrisu are all rather unknown to me. A player that has caught my eye is captain Yahaya Mubarak, primarily a central midfielder but can also play as central defender or support striker. John Owusu is a central midfielder. Stephen Adams is an important member of the team, usually found on the right-wing. Tahiru Muntari is a left-winger. Playmaker Aaron Amoah (born 07.07.1993) is presented in my post from 16.10.2010. Mohammed Gado (born 20.05.1985) is a striker who was highly regarded when he played for Hearts of Oak SC in 2007-2008. Played for Maccabi Herzliya in Israel in 2008-2009 and has struggled ever since, both at Tema Youth FC and Asante Kotoko FC. The most dangerous striker of Mighty Jets is arguably Kofi Owusu (born 07.04.1990). Owusu started 2009-2010 at Liberty Professionals but failed to score in a handful of appearances. Was apparently one of the top goalscorer at second level in 2008-2009, then playing for Okwawu United FC. Kwaku Sarpong (born 14.09.1989) is an experienced attacker, formerly of Kessben FC, Arsenal FC Berekum and AshantiGold SC. Mighty Jets has used several players that are unknown to me, including Samuel Owusu Addo and  Peter Tibila, the latter signed from New Edubiase United FC.


List of scorers after Round 8:

Stephen Manu 6, Fuseini Nuhu 2, Abubakari Mumuni 1.

Player information:

Saliu Iddrisu and Collins Addo (born 24.04.1989) are the goalkeepers of New Edubiase. The latter is well known in Ghana, having played 11 matches for Hearts of Oak SC back in 2007-2008. The central defense is usually consisting of strongman Richard Adjei (born 04.03.1985), formerly of Kessben FC and King Faisal Babes, and the experienced Iddrisu Yahaya (born 12.08.1985) who was signed from Asante Kotoko FC, where he was mostly used as a defensive midfielder. Right-back Abeiku Ainooson (born 24.09.1990) is highly regarded and has played for both Ghana U-17 and Ghana U-20. Attacking left-back Ibrahim Moro (born 31.12.1989) was signed from Kessben FC before 2009-2010 and has been a revelation. Abubakari Mumuni (born 17.05.1993) is currently a member of Ghana U-17 and according to some sources the youngster is actually captain of New Edubiase. A central midfielder with tremendous potential. Michael Ocansey is an experienced central midfielder who has actually part of Ghana U-20 back in 2002. Formerly of Eleven Wise FC. Hard-tackling midfielder Asiedu Attobrah is one of the most exciting prospects of New Edubiase, sometimes used as a right-winger. Is a current member of Ghana U-17.  Playmaker / left-winger Baba Gullit (born 23.09.1987) has tremendous skills and should be a key-player this season. Emmanuel Baffour (born 02.04.1989) scored seven goals for Tema Youth FC in 2008-2009 and is now back at Premier League-level. Formerly of Liberty Professionals FC. Stephen Manu (born 21.01.1985) is a tall and lanky striker who is able to play as a lone striker. Failed to score for Asante Kotoko FC last season but is currently on fire. Nuhu Fuseini (born 20.06.1989) is a tricky and hard-working striker. Fidel Bortey, Emmanuel Nti, Emmanuel Ofori and Sakyi Quaye are all rather unknown to me.


List of scorers after Round 8:

Toufik Alolo 1, Richard Annan 1, Hassan Mohammed 1, Richard Yeboah 1.

Player information:

John Adjetey is the current goalkeeper of RTU, formerly of Real Sportive Tema and Great Olympics. The defense is centered around the experienced Mohammed Baker who has been with RTU for at least nine years. Central defender Hannan Giwah is now back at the club he broke through with, after two seasons at Asante Kotoko FC, where he failed to establish himself. Hassan Mohammed is a left-back / right-back who has a regular for Hearts of Oak for several seasons. Member of Ghana U-23 back in 2006. Richard Yeboah (born 26.09.1984) is an experienced defender, formerly of Real Sportive Tema. Abdulai Abdul Karim (born 17.10.1991) is a product of the Red Bull Academy. Atia Sumaila (born 20.06.1985) is a midfielder, formerly of Catholic Stars FC. Their most important attacker is veteran Toufik Alolo – obviously a great player but has not scored a lot of goals the last couple of years. Sumaila Nyanya is a former attacker of AshantiGold SC. RTU has used several unknown players to me, including Amos Acheampong, Richard Annan and Alhassan Hamidu.
