Ghana's No. 1

Published on: 12 September 2022

Kotoku Royals goalkeeper Clinton Quaye has been named Man of the Match after his heroics earned the debutants victory over Accra Lions in the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League opener. 

Clinton Quaye made incredible saves to prevent Accra Lions from equalizing an early winner from forward Augustine Boakye.

The shot-stopper was deservedly awarded for his stalwart performance at the Cape Coast stadium, where the Akyem-based club have adopted as their home venue.

Meanwhile, Augustine Boakye's first half strike was enough as the hosts secured all three points on their topflight debut.

The strong forward took advantage of Kotoku Royals good start to the game to net the opener after 19 minutes.

Accra Lions were immediately awoken from their slumber as they began to seize control of the match with their possessive style of play.

Malian forward Youssouf Simpara came close with a chance to level for the visitors but failed to capitalize on the opportunity.

After the break, Kotoku Royals began to ask questions but it did not last as Lions reclaimed control.

Despite pouring forward with waves and waves of attacker, the visitors could not take their chances as Kotoku Royals defended resolutely in the second half.
