Kumasi Cornerstone FC, one of Ghana’s oldest clubs have announced that they’ve reached an agreement with former Hearts of Oak coach, Samuel Boadu to take charge as their new head coach, a statement on Twitter has confirmed.

Samuel Boadu has been without a club since partying ways with Hearts of Oak at the beginning of the previous season. Boadu in a year and half at Hearts of Oak won the Premier League title, the MTN FA Cup on two occasions, the President Cup and the Ghana Super Cup.

However, a poor start to the previous season saw Hearts of Oak end their contract with him. Boadu after leaving Hearts of Oak served as head coach of the Black Satellites, where he led the team to the WAFU Zone B Boys Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, bowing out in the group stages.

Despite the manner in which Boadu left Hearts of Oak, his services was needed by a plethora of clubs, including Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko. However, he has agreed to sign a deal with hometown club Kumasi Cornerstones, where he has been tasked to bring the team back to the Division One League.

“We are delighted to announce Mr. Samuel Boadu as a stop-gap coach. We are certain that Boadu’s experience and standard of excellence as a tactician will impact Cornerstone Football Club positively as we work assiduously to revive our old ,” said the team in a statement

“Per the agreement, the club will not hesitate to let him leave whenever a bigger opportunity comes his way,” the statement added.

Kumasi Cornerstone is the oldest existing football club in the Ashanti kingdom. The club was formed in 1931, 4 years before Asante Kotoko was formed.

Cornerstone have a rich history in Ghana football. They are two-time winners of the FA Cup (1959 and 1965), winners of the 1979 Ghana Telecom Gala Champions and 1987 WAFU Championship.

Nevertheless, they’ve vanished from Ghana’s topflight football after suffering demotion in the late 90s, while suffering a series of demotions further down the Ghanaian football ladder.

Cornerstone will be competing in the Regional Division Two League in the Ashanti Region next season and Boadu will be hoping to qualify the team to the Access Bank Division One League in his first attempt.
