Queens Delighted At Skipper’s Comeback

As Genevieve Clottey hands over captain’s band

The camp of the Women National Team, Black Queens was thrown into a state of ecstasy with the arrival of inspirational captain, Alberta Sackey on Friday night.

Alberta who announced her retirement from international soccer after the Women’s World Cup in the USA last year rescinded her decision following an intervention from the affable Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Hon. Rashid Bawa.
