We admit that on the day we were not good enough to salvage the situation and would like to ask for the continuous support and cooperation of all stakeholders to move this club forward.
We will like to assure all Phobians that the Management of the club is putting in measures that would ensure that the team returns to winning ways as soon as possible in our next game against Bolga AllStars at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday.
