A charity game for Isaac Anderson
Anderson, suffered a fracture of his left leg in a second division match for Oil City Academy on August 21, the same day Sekondi Hasaacas drew 1-1 with Asante Kotoko at the Sekondi stadium.
His premier league colleagues after their season decided to play the match on the birthing ground of some of the finest footballers from Sekondi Takoradi metropolis, as a sign of sympathy for their fellow. Injury seems to be an eternal adversary of sportsmen, mostly cutting short their promising career.
Jakimo as he is affectionately called, was brought to the venue in a Toyota corolla salon car but walked to his seat with the aid of crutches. All smiles on his ever looking baby face as he sat, followed by numerous exchanges of name calling and jargons with his colleagues - the funny side of footballers.
The star players on show you can name; league winning trio from Wa All Stars - Kweku Assuadze Baffoe, Emma Ocran and Maxwell Baako. Theophilus Nyame and Emmanuel Gyamfi from Kotoko, Leonard Tawiah from Hearts, Eric Bekoe, Albert Gaisie, Samuel Afful, Roland Amouzou and Kojo Poku from Hasaacas. Stephen Aidoo and Christopher Bonney from Dwarfs, Abeiku Ainooson and Samuel Ocran from Dreams FC, among others.
Ex Black Stars defender, Stephen Baidoo and former Eleven Wise and Hasaacas wonder striker, John Ainoo joined their younger mates to display their skills and abilities which dazzled many during the league season. Emma Gyamfi, Kojo Poku and Samuel Ocran were the scorers on the day in the exciting game.
Ex national striker, Augustine Arhinful was a seated guest observing a good football match. The indigenes and friends from the communities also came to witness the match which they got treated to some showcase of free styling on the ball.
The hope of everyone in attendance is to see a recuperated Isaac Anderson back on the field sooner than later.
