The 2021/2022 Ghana Women Premier league is set to commence as each participant gears up for the upcoming season.
The Ghana Women premier league for the past seasons has undergone a sudden revolution of young female players taking the game by storm and this upcoming season has been tipped to be no exception.
Sportsgh.com picks the top six (6) female talents that are likely to explode in the 2021 Ghana Women premier league season.
- DORIS BOADUWAA – HASAACAS LADIES
Breaking into a team’s set-up is a pretty tricky thing to do but that’s exactly what Doris did upon her arrival from Nana Ampem Darkoa ladies.
The lanky forward scored nine (9) goals in 7 appearances for the green and white side in the annulled 2020 campaign and is expected to take up from where she left off in the previous campaign.
- MILOT ABENA POKUA – HASAACAS LADIES
Arguably the most prolific striker in the 2020 Ghana Women’s league campaign, Milot gave out a lot to talk about, netting 10 goals, 10 assists and emerging joint top-scorer with Ophelia Serwaa Amponsah.
The Black Princesses forward has been tipped to steer Hasaacas ladies to the summit of the league with her partnership with Doris Boaduwaa.
- ABIGAIL TAWIAH – BERRY LADIES
- The new black queens shot-stopper stole the headlines in the previous campaign with some remarkable saves for her side in the southern sector of the women league.
Following Abigail’s heroic saves in the previous season, she was handed a call up into the senior national women team and has been likened to former black queens great goalkeeper Memunatu Sulemana.
- RAHAMA JAFAR – NORTHERN LADIES
The in-form Black Princesses winger is expected to capitalise on last season’s form to gear her side to the top in this year’s competition.
Her versatility on both wings and ability to wriggle away from defenders before firing home resulted in six goals in the Northern zone. Rahama is the glue that holds things together although she doesn’t score goals for fun like others, but gets the best out of each and every one of her teammates.
- OPHELIA SERWAA AMPONSAH – AMPEM DARKOA LADIES
Ophelia surprisingly stepped into the gap following the departure of Princella Adubea at Ampem Darkoa Ladies FC as her previous season saw her warm the bench mostly due the presence of the latter.
Notwithstanding, she got her name on all lips of every Ghanaian female football loving fan with her superb and outstanding performance in last season’s campaign, netting the first haul (4 goals) of the season on match-day.
Again, she recorded a hat-trick on match-day 5, paving the way for a call-up into the national U-17 team, the Black Maidens. Ophelia has been impressive at the international level, bagging 5 goals in the FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup qualifier against Liberia.
- BARIKISU ABDUL-RAHMAN – PEARL PIA LADIES
Undoubtedly an experienced and incredible talent gracing the Ghana Women’s Premier League for the fourth continuous season for Pearl Pia Ladies in the Northern Zone. She is one of the most disciplined and reliable players for her side and has played every single 90 minutes for Pearl Pia Ladies in last season’s campaign.
