The attacker beat off competition from Bofoakwa Tano’s sensational striker Welbeck Takyi whose earlier form in the season earned him a call up to the Black Stars squad. He ended the season in joint second (14 goals) with Berekum Arsenal’s Ansu Kofi Patrick who also found the back of the net 14 times.
