Ashanti Hockey Association inaugurated

A private legal practitioner, Yaw Acheampong Boafo, was last Saturday elected unopposed as the new chairman of the Ashanti Regional Hockey Association of Ghana.

He takes over from Engineer James Amoo-Gottfried who had led the Ashanti Regional association over the last decade.

Amoo-Gottfried's failure to stand for re-election was as a result of his relocation to Accra which has indeed, made him a passive member for some time now. Boafo, son of former Ashanti Regional Minister, S. K. Boafo, was the overwhelming choice following his many years of association with the sport.

He had been consistent since his days at Prempeh College through to the Law School and played several roles at national level to develop the sport.

Lawyer Boafo would be assisted by his vice, Kwabena Akyeampong, secretary, Fedelia Dua Prempeh, treasurer, Peter Obeng, Welfare, Ofori Aseidu Emmanuel, technical director, Innusah Iddrisu and Financial secretary, Wallace Ababio Jr.

They are to serve for four years.
