Nii Amartey Adasah as chairman with Messrs Ignatius Elletey and Thomas Kwami Sosu as members.The committee has been tasked to revamp the management of amputee football and to raise its profile across the country.Chairman Rev Adasah told JOY Sports he is immediately “thinking of an advisory board that would comprise of people with background who will help in the federation’s management. This year we also have the African Cup of Nations in Kenya, we also have to find a way of raising funds to make this happen. Once we are able to get the right kind of people to help us, we will definitely get there and achieve our targets.”The appointment of the three-member committee comes a year after former chairman of the federation Francis Adjetey Sowah was kicked out of office following alleged corruption and chaos among the playing body.
Twenty-two-year-old Michael Emmanuel was on Monday arraigned for the murder of Leonard Peters when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.He was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on December 21 at Lot 7 West Watooka, Linden, he murdered Peters, also called Lenny.The accused was unrepresented at the time of his appearance. It was reported that the now dead man was attending a social event, where it is alleged that he “accidentally spilled alcohol” on the accused.This incident, escalated into a physical confrontation between the two. Soon after the altercation, Peters was seen bleeding from the left side of his chest from what appeared to be a stab wound.The injured man was rushed to the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC), where he succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention. The suspect was arrested and charged for the murder.Meanwhile, a post-mortem performed on the body of Peters gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the chest and perforation of the lung. The autopsy was performed by Government Pathologist, Dr Nehaul Singh on Monday.The accused is expected to make his next court appearance on January 8, 2019.
Ex-Manchester City goalkeeper David James believes his former club’s £54m summer signing Kevin De Bruyne has already proved he ‘is worth every penny.’The Belgian playmaker netted a vital injury-time winner against Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday night, taking his tally to five goals already in his fledgling City career.The 24-year-old has also contributed three assists in a stellar start to life in England and has emerged as a key player for Manuel Pellegrini in the absence of the injured David Silva.James insists the eye-watering fee City paid for De Bruyne has already been vindicated, while he also reserves credit for another huge summer transfer – Manchester United’s new teen sensation Anthony Martial.Speaking about De Bruyne on the Sports Breakfast, he said: “What a fantastic finish yesterday.“He really is worth every penny. The transfer window has produced two gems for the right price so far.“I must admit I did my homework on Martial on transfer deadline day, and like most people he was unknown to me.“But he’s a tremendous talent. He’s been very versatile and proved he’s a good goalscorer. For his age he’s looking the real deal.”De Bruyne and Martial will go head to head in the first Manchester derby of the season on Sunday – a match you can listen exclusively live to on talkSPORT from 2pm BST.
