Mr Daniel Nii Mensah, the owner of Greater Accra Division Two club, Dan De-Van SC has tipped the team as early favourites for the league which gets underway on April 28.
According to Mr Mensah, the developmental is are poised to better their third-place finish from last season after impressing in their pre-season friendlies; the latest of which was a 2-2 draw with Karim Zito’s Black Starlets.
The philanthropist is hopeful that the success of the team on the pitch will enable him to grow the Dan De-Van Sporting Club which also comprises a para-sports team.
“Last season we placed third scoring the highest goals and we are hoping to do better this year,” Mr Mensah told the Daily Graphic in an interview on Monday.
“We started this project under the technical guidance of EK Afranie, however, he is no more with us but his protege’s Technical Director Ali Jaraa and coach Frank Owusu are continuing the project and we hope to see some results soon”.
“The delay in the start of the league affected us but we kept the boys busy with some friendly matches which were witnessed by some foreign scouts”.
Established in 2016, the goal of Dan De-Van SC is to develop talented young football players to become future stars of Africa.
Dan De-Van SC has adopted the Kawukudi Park in Accra as its home grounds.
