Ashantigold SC has today disengaged with the services of its Head Coach Mr. C. K. Akonnor. Whilst there is a huge sentiment for Mr. Akonnor, who has done so much for the club both as a player and coach, the decision was taken in the best interest of Ashgold. Management would like to place on record Mr. Akonnor’s tremendous contribution to the club in the last one year, and as such, would like to thank him and wish him well in his future endeavors.
