Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has spent some of his time in England to support a football charitable organisation who are due in Ghana in the summer to support local school.

Appiah is leading the Black Stars technical team on an ideas-sharing tour of England which resulted in his decision to back a charitable organisation bent on supporting the poor in Ghana.

With the Burton Albion Community Trust visiting Ghana this summer, Appiah spent time with members of the BACT to talk about the visit, as well as having a photo with some of the volunteers who will be flying out in May.

Burton Albion were delighted to welcome the Ghanaian national team manager James Kwesi Appiah to the Pirelli Stadium for the home game with Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday night.

Appiah was a guest of Chairman Ben Robinson as the Brewers beat Wycombe 1-0, with Appiah visiting the country ahead of the World Cup, which is held in Brazil this summer.

Chairman Ben Robinson said “We were delighted to welcome James and his guests to the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday evening to watch the game.

"His visit was even more relevant, with our Community Trust volunteers travelling out to Ghana this summer to help local schools, and we hope to see him back here in the future.”
