BA United coach Frimpong Manso has set a modest target of Premier League survival this season.

The Apostles of Ghana football are marking a return to the top-flight after a ten-year absence.

They secured their promotional status after recording two wins and a draw in their National Division One League playoffs.

The club’s coach, Manso, who is an ex-Ghana international, has vowed to enjoy his Premier League return and senses a buzz of optimism around the Brong Ahafo region.

“We are looking forward to the challenge ahead. The one thing we won't be is petrified of it,” he said

"It's a big occasion and there's more excitement around the place than trepidation.

“We want to ensure we maintain our top-flight status in our first season and that’s our target.”

United will revive their rivalry against Kotoko and Hearts as well as regional derby games against Aduana Stars.
