Accra Hearts of Oak cloaks 102 years
…still going stronger
Hip Hip Hip … Hurray
Glorious Accra Hearts of Oak is today 102 years and
on this special Monday, we take the opportunity of the day November 11 to wish
all Phobians well and success in all their endeavours.
Today, we salute the founding fathers of this great
football club that has given us joy and happiness.
We appreciate the efforts of all players and
officials of the club throughout these glorious years. From the classic and
fantastic chairmen to the hard working secretaries and executives to the
coaches, masseurs and ball boys, we say ayeekoo.
Nobody has served Hearts of Oak and regretted. For
sure there would be good times and bad occasions, but the Phobian spirit lives
on and gets stronger.
For records in football, Hearts have done what
champions all over do. They are the Continental Club Masters because after
winning the first league in Ghana in 1958, Hearts have conquered Africa in 2000
and 2004, winning the African Champions League and the African Super Cup.
Hearts of Oak were rated as the 8th best
football club in the world, because they play real real good football.
Throughout the century and two years, Hearts of Oak
has produced some wonderful players. The list is endless, but there are some
super stars and legends who can never be forgotten like Ackon Duncan, George Alhassan,
Kofi Bruce, Osei Kofi, Chris Briandt, Amusa Gbadamoshie, Addo Odametey, Anas
Seidu, Mama Acquah, Ofei Ansah, Hesse Odamtten, Mohammed Polo. Robert Foley,

The past, current and even future players of Accra
Hearts of Oak have been real achievers, because the never say die until the
bones are rotten. Hearts of Oak has a sound solid foundation which needs solid
structures to prove to the world that there was and there is still the great
champion club of Ghana and Africa call Accra Hearts of Oak.
Hearts supporters are scattered all over Ghana and
beyond, unlike other clubs whose fans are mostly based at the home of the club.
As the game changes from Amateur to Professional, so
Hearts of Oak management and administration is changing from better to best.
The season is just started and Hearts have vowed to
add 2013/14 to their collection of Ghana League titles.
For publicity, Hearts have enjoyed most, even with
this great media, the New Rainbow Sports.
We once again say congratulations to the founding
fathers and those who have steered the club from levels to heights.
Way Hearts! PHOOOBIA
