Posted by

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) paid a visit to former Asante Kotoko goalkeepers’ trainer, Sampson Appiah on Monday, 15th May and donated Hundred Thousand Cedis (GHS10,000.00) to him.

The visit which was led by the President of the GFA, Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku forms part of objectives set by the GFA foundation outdoored last month by the GFA as its social investment wing.

The GFA Foundation is borne out of the desire and commitment by the current leadership of the Association to enhance the living conditions of former footballers who might be in needy situations as a result of old age, ill-health, injury or general deprivation.

The visit which is a testament to the aforementioned agenda is the fourth activity by the GFA Foundation since it established.

The foundation first donated Fifty Thousand Cedis (GHS50,000.00) to former Ghana Coach, Sellas Tetteh, before donating Hundred Thousand Cedis (GHS10,000.00) to former Black Stars Team Manager, Sabahn Quaye and a former player, Thomas Quaye.

Sampson Appiah played for the Black Stars from 1983 to 1990. He joined Kumasi Asante Kotoko from Okwahu United together with Opeele Aboagye and Agyeman Duah.

Some of his playing mates at Kotoko were Coach Akwasi Appiah, Frimpong Manso, Emmanuel Ampiah and Thomas Boakye. Mr. Appiah also played for Kumasi Cornerstone and was a member of the WAFU Cup winning squad in 1987.

He later became Kotoko’s Goalkeeper’s Coach and was part of the Kotoko Team that had a fatal accident in 2017 after honouring a premier League match with Inter Allies.

Present at the donation ceremony were the Ashanti Regional Football Association Chairman, Mr. Osei Tutu Agyeman alias Kotoro and some Kotoko legends including Opoku Nti, Ibrahim Gariba and Joe Mens
