Ashgold signs Betway Talent Search runner-up

Ashanti Gold Sporting Club has handed a professional contract to Douglas Amanning, one of the winners of the maiden edition of the Betway Talent Search.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder from New Abirem emerged as runner-up in the Betway talent search competition, earning a 6-month trial with Ghana Premier League side Ashgold SC.

Douglas’ excellent displays during the trial period caught the eyes of the technical handlers of AshGold who have offered him a 4-year-deal.

“My dream has always been to play professional football. I believe there are a lot of great players here I can learn and develop from. I am eager to see the league start, I will work harder to force myself into the first team.” Douglas shared with this site.

Head Coach of Ashgold S.C, C.K Akonnor intimated that the young lad’s talent and attitude earned him the lucrative deal.

“Douglas has been with us since pre-season and I am very impressed with the way he has developed and improved over this period of time. If he continues to show the same level of commitment and hardwork, we will achieve great things together, he said.

The Betway Talent Search sits alongside the Betway sponsorship of Ashanti Gold, Liberty, Aduana Stars and Medeama as part of Betway’s commitment and support to Ghanaian football.
