Richard Kingson helps Balikesirspor win promotion

Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingson has been successful in helping Balikesirspor win promotion to the Turkish top flight.

The experienced goalkeeper was in full time action to help his side seal the second promotional spot with a vital 2-1 win over Istanbul BB in the final game of the season played on Sunday night.

Kingson only joined Balikesirspor in January on a short-term deal from Cypriot club Doxa Katokopias.

He now gets the chance to play top flight football in Turkey once more again in his illustrious football career which has seen him play for 13 different clubs.

The Black Stars goalkeeper will however be returning to the championship that made him a household name in Turkey.

Balikesirspor will be making only their second appearance in the Turkish top flight in the 2014/15 campaign in their 48-year history.

    All the goalkeepers are getting game time Kwarasey ,Olele,Braimah,Adams expect Dauda.No change under three coaches.The only person who think Dauda is next to perfection is AA and some of us knows why.

    Kingston is a proven stopper just like experienced Dauda, no doubt.

    Akwasi Appiah should take Richard Kingson to Brazil to create big competition for Adam Kwarasey and Dauda. Could you guys remember how Dauda performed in Kumasi against Egypt and we won 6-1 when Kingson was on the bench?

    Richard Kingston wasn't in post for Balikersispor against BB Istanbul..Be sure of your update Ghanasoccernet. Kwame Karikari played the game and Kingston warmed the bench.
