DAILYHERITAGE.COM.GH Sports DAILY HERITAGE TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2018 Ghana Beach Soccer is 10yrs FROM GHANA BEACH SOCCER ASSOCIATION THE PRESI- DENT of the Ghana Beach Soccer Association, Mr Yaw Ampofo Ankrah believes that after a decade of experimental development, the time is right for a total overhaul and rebranding of beach soccer in Ghana. The man, who is widely acknowledged as the founding father of beach soccer along with Albert Frimpong who is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Skate Soccer and media guru Sammy Heywood Okine, have been at the helm of affairs for a decade amidst challenges, hurdles, and relative successes. In his estimation, Mr Ankrah believes that out of the decade, only five years were used to progressively advance through marketing and branding. "It's not about making excuses but the fact remains that we had no textbook or template to guide us in our formative days and so it was trial and error from day one. "It has been a blessing in disguise over the past few years because we've had more disappointments, failures and setbacks than successes but these very setbacks have allowed us to appreciate what works and what does not and will be used as a guide for any future beach •Flashback: Ghana Vs Morocco clash soccer management to advance the growth and development of the sport." Former player and now manager of Layoca Beach Soccer Club, Nii Laryea Bonnie, shares the view that the sport is about to finally take off and explode because the lessons of past disappointments would serve as a major guide. There are significant positives to celebrate about beach soccer in Ghana. Record-setting teams like triple league champions Keta Sunset and one time winners Mighty Havedzi blazed the trail from the Volta Region. Greater Accra has produced clubs like Sea Lions, Layoca, Wuo Gbee, Gulf Powers and Dansoman Beach Soccer Club. Other names that have become household names in beach soccer include Osu Dolphins, Ada Assurance, Chorkor Blue Whales, Golden Eagles and Teshie United BSC, as well as Nima Beach Soccer Club. Ironically, the football-dominated Ghanaian media is yet to fully embrace the energy demanding sport or critically assess the impact the sport has made over such an explosive period. For example, during the 2014 season, Beach Soccer was able to run a double-tier league of 20 teams making it the first of its kind on the Africa continent. Due to lack of sponsorship, logistics and general technical resources, the league was reset down to 10 teams with clubs hailing from the Western, Central, Volta and Greater Accra regions of Ghana. Meanwhile, a sports marketing consultant, Mr Frederick Amoah has advised beach soccer team owners to set up their clubs on professional models to meet the challenges of sport management and business. It is no secret that Mr Ankrah is currently in talks with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on potential partnership and affiliation as encouraged by Confederation of Africa Football leading to the accelerated growth of the sport on the domestic front, across the African continent and eventually a strong African presence beyond the continent. Ghana Beach Soccer is likely to go to Congress before March by which time the GFA would have outlined the wider context for the development of the game. Meanwhile, the ‘Ghana Beach Soccer @10’ anniversary programme, is also expected to roll out where clubs would be given the opportunity to present their internal set up-structures which would create an enabling environment for more funding, infrastructure and general support to boost the sport. Nigeria to host African Fencing Championships THE INTERNATIONAL Fencing Federation (FIE) has awarded Nigeria the hosting right for the 2018 Junior/Cadet African Fencing Championships. The event, which will take place from February 26 to March 5 at the Molade Okoya-Thomas Hall of the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, has been endorsed by Lagos State, with Governor Akinwunmi Ambode scheduled to attend the ceremony along the FIE President, Alisher Usmanov, who is Russia’s richest man and a major shareholder in Arsenal Football Club. President of the Nigeria Fencing Federation, Adeyinka Samuel said this was the first time Nigeria would host any international event in the sport, adding that the country beat Tunisia and Algeria to the hosting right. The J/C AFC is an internationally recognised and FIE-approved tournament that provides a platform for fencers across Africa’s 31 registered nations to compete for world ranking points leading to the 2018 World Championships in Verona, Italy and the 2020 Olympics Games in Tokyo, Japan. Other international dignitaries are also expected at the championship, which is expected to attract over 150 fencers from about 25 African countries. Samuel, a former top 100-ranked fencer, lauded Governor Ambode for the support to host the event, pointing out that it would boost tourism and other businesses in the state. Polo lambasts Kotoko’s wastefulness in CARA win FORMER BLACK Stars player Mohammed Ahmed Polo has lambasted Asante Kotoko for their profligacy in their slender win over CARA Brazzaville in the first leg of the preliminary stage of the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday. The Baba Yara Sports Stadium was dead silence in the aftermath of Asante Kotoko 1-0 victory against Congolese outfit CARA Brazzaville in the first leg encounter of the opening day of this year's CAF's second-tier club competition after the Ghana FA Cup holder's squandered three penalties in the game. During an interview with Happy FM, Mohammed Polo, who experienced numerous high-octane clashes against the Porcupine Warriors during his time with the club's sworn adversaries, Hearts of Oak, reiterated his grievance over the chances missed and claimed that it could haunt them in the return encounter. "Kotoko won't have it easy in Congo. I doubt if they'll be able to handle the home support Cara will get," Mohammed Polo told Happy FM. "Missing three penalty kicks clearly shows the technical problem Kotoko is facing. Kotoko’s performance was nothing to write home about. "Coach should concentrate more on training players on how to score goals because it's a major problem in our football in Ghana. "Kotoko will be intimidated in Congo. They had the opportunities here and they wasted them. Kotoko have to score real goals there. They won't be awarded four penalties." The second leg is scheduled to come off in a fortnight. •Kotoko line-up
