Northern Region is known to be a hub of young talents in football. So many young talented footballers pop-up from the region and are making it big in football in Ghana and beyond. Those include Mohammed Sherif, Musah Hashim, Alhassan Uzairu, David Abagna, Muntari Kamahene, Yakubu Abdul-Aziz, Issahaku Abdul-Fataw, Mohammed Yahaya etc. All these players came from lower division clubs in Tamale.

Another young player who has pop up from Tamale and is making the headlines in Division One League is Abubakar Abdul-Shakun. The young chap plays for Tamale based Division One League club, Steadfast Fc. The young attacker is able to fill the gap left behind by Alhassan Siisu who now plays for Premier League side, Elimina Sharks Fc.

Abubakar Abdul-Shakun is admired for his pace, ability to dribble and his technique in shooting on goal. Owing to these features, he has scored eight(8) goals with six(6) assists as a winger in sixteen(16) appearances for Steadfast FC, and has also won seven(7) MVP Awards in the sixteen matches he played in the ongoing Division One League.

The former Tamale CFC and Zanwara FC player is expected to continue his fine form in the division one league and could perhaps get the opportunity of getting a call up to any of the youth national teams.
