BA United qualify for Ghana Premier League with one match to spare in playoffs

BA United

BA United gained promotion to the Ghana Premier League after 10 years in the second-tier league following a 1-0 win over Real Tamale United on Wednesday in the Division One League Zone I playoffs. 

The Soccer Apostles stunned Tamale-based RTU thanks to a late second-half strike from Major Baah Tetteh at the Robert Mensah Sports Stadium.

Frimpong Manso's men took a giant step towards promotion when they eased past regional rivals Berekum Arsenal on Sunday before defeating the Northern Lions to claim the sole ticket available in the group.

RTU, who had also recorded victory in their opening game against Wa African United, went into the game with promotion on their minds and held B/A for most parts of the games despite their impressive attacking prowess.

The match-winner would not arrive until Major Baah Tetteh broke loose on the flanks to rattle the RTU net with a fierce drive.

    Kudos to apostles of power soccer for qualifying to the premier league. Thanks goes to the Almighty God , board members, the young chairman ( lyoid), the supporters, the media, nananom , and the entire stakeholders of the team. Now that... We have qualified to the premier is important to use our strength, our knowledge to help the team to remain in the premiership. We should avoid any embarrassment of the team and become united.

    Welcome back but one thing we the people of bring ahafo will resist is that silly kotoko alienation that sent them to relegation 10 years ago. How should U allow kotoko to give U below standard players so that U allow yourself to be scored like 6-1 in favour of kotoko at Baba Yara stadium and again beat U in sunyani, all in the name of alliance. Whenever BA Utd is playing hearts of oak, the play hard game because kotoko has given BA Utd money to beat or draw of hearts. Nobody should doubt this because am speaking as an insider of BA Utd under the administration of King George Arthur. Wise up BA Utd
