Ashanti Gold are winners of the maiden edition of the BK Edusei Foundation Cup

Ashanti Gold are winners of the maiden edition of the BK Edusei Foundation Cup after beating their regional rivals, Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The
game, which was played on Sunday, saw the Miners defeating the Porcupines 4-3
on penalties to win the trophy after a goalless 90 minutes action.

Goalkeeper
Felix Annan made two superb saves for Kotoko but his teammates couldn’t hold on
to the lead missing three kicks, two out of which was saved by Ashgold’s Frank
Boateng.

The
BK Adusei Memorial Match was organised by the BK Foundation to raise funds to
support former Asante Kotoko players in the 1970s.

Adusei
was the first Chairman of the Board of Directors of Asante Kotoko and remained
so for a very long time till the late Asantehene Otumfuo Opoku Ware II
conferred on him the title of life patron. He was the main inspirer and major
financier whilst Otumfuo was the spiritual head.

The
match also offered the two clubs the platform as they continue preparations for
their upcoming continental games.

Kotoko
will face Étoile du Sahel of Tunisia while Ashanti Gold lock horns with RSB Berkane
of Morocco.
