This particular final has attracted some attention because it involves the best two female football clubs who share deep healthy rivalry, as it has always been between the security institutions.
The GFA Women’s Board and Sanford Clinic, the sponsors have worked hard to reach the final, and hope to put up a better organization to improve upon the last season which was played at the same venue.
The leadership of both security agencies have also shown keen interest and they are adopting various plans and strategies for a victory.
The media have also hyped the match better than last season, with the Cape Coast radio stations trying to inform the public about the final regularly.
Speaking on Agoo TV Sports Show last Wednesday, Assistant Chief Officer Fainusatu Naomi Abdulai, the Team Manager of Prisons Ladies said her players are ready to wrestle the trophy from Police Ladies as they have been seriously focused from the start of the competition. “We will keep Police in safe prison custody” she said.
But the Team manager for Police Ladies, Ansah Asomani has cautioned Prisons Ladies to remember their last encounter in the Security Services Sports Association (SESSA) games.
Rosalind Amoh, an executive member of the Women’s Football Board said all the preparations have been made, and they are ready for football action.
The organisers are providing a free bus to convey the media personnel from Accra to Cape Coast. Interested journalists who wish to cover the finals of the Sandford FA Cup must report at the GFA secretariat early morning on Saturday.
