Accra, Aug. 3, GNA –
The Technical team of the Betway Talent Search has selected the final 18
players to begin camping and grooming.

The technical team,
which includes former Black Stars Captain Stephen Appiah and Local Black Stars
coach Maxwell Konadu, ended their Regional search in Accra on Saturday.

The Talent search
train had already been to Takoradi, Kumasi and Sekondi.

The players, aged
between 18-25 years, would begin the camping from August 21 to 26, and would be
offered the opportunity to showcase their skills to the coaching team to and
also get professional contracts.

The selected players
comprises of five from the Ashanti Region, seven from the Eastern Region, three
from the Western Region and three from the Greater Accra Region.

They are Frank Asamoah
Antwi, Frank Amankwah, Christian Oduro, Anthony Antwi, Agyemang, Isaac Opoku,
Alexander Yakohene, Derick Yeboah Nortey, Prince Arthur, Daniel Waliba,
Mohammed Sulemanna, Simon Arthur and Munkala Ahmed.

The rest are Obed
Appiah, Richard Agyemang, Nathaniel Laryea, Douglas Amaning, Sulley Wahabu and
Prince Boateng.

Appiah after the
programme expressed his happiness and was hopeful that the opportunity given to
the selected players should be a boost to them to begin a career.

He thanked Betway for
giving him the opportunity to lead the technical team and encouraged the
players, who were dropped not to despair but rather be encouraged and use the
opportunity they got as a stepping stone to success.

“It’s been great
so far. We have seen so many talents and it was difficult for us to select the
18 players. Whenever we are selecting the players I get emotional because they
were all good and deserved to make it to the next stage but we obviously have
to cut down the numbers.

“I want to thank
Betway for giving me the opportunity to be part of this initiative”,
Appiah said.

The Betway Talent
Search also forms part of Betway’s commitment to drive interest and support in
Ghanaian football.
