Keta Pitch and Community Centre

July 10th, 2011 by admin

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide infrastructure for our clubs, Sandlanders Football has been working with Architecture for Humanity UK on designs for a pitch and community facility to be developed in Keta.

As well as providing a first class facility for the development of footballers in the area, it will also act as a centre for educational and cultural activities for the whole community and will be owned by the Keta Sandlanders FC Co-operative Society.

In the long term we would hope to develop equivalent centres for each Sandlanders club.

Keta miss out on Middle League

May 1st, 2011 by admin

A 2-1 defeat for Keta Sandlanders away at Orderily FC today means that we finish second in the group and do not qualify for Middle League in Ghana’s Division 2.

We finished the season with 19 points from 10 games but Orderily’s win sees them qualify with 20 points.

The players are very disappointed but we will be back next year!

Keta Sandlanders Half Term Report

March 6th, 2011 by admin

Keta Sandlanders have now reached the halfway stage of our campaign in Ghana’s Volta Region Division 2. We are currently second in a tight table on 10 points having inflicted the only defeat so far on leaders Abor Comboni and remain hopeful of Middle League qualification.

As a reminder to fans we need to finish top of the group to qualify for Middle League which will see us play off against the winners of 14 other groups in the Volta Region for just 1 place in Ghana’s Division One.

Star performers so far include striker John Mensah (who has a couple of goals to his name), midfielders Mawuli and Rexford Armah and defender John Alphonse.

Long standing Sandlanders midfielder Tibo Agbesse has been training with the junior side of Accra Hearts of Oak this season and we wish him well if he is able to make the move permanent. Though they are having a bad season in the Premiership Hearts are one of Africa’s great sides (they won the Champions League in 2000) and this would be a big step up for Tibo.

Here is the latest league table. The second round will commence in a couple of weeks time and regular updates will be posted at sandlanders.com.

Abanata 1-0 Keta Sandlanders

February 22nd, 2011 by admin

Keta Sandlanders suffered their first defeat of the season on Sunday away at Abanata FC of Aflao. A depleted Sandlanders side missed key defender John Alphonse (arm injury) and with 3 players down with malaria the side did not look its usual self. A first half goal was enough to finish the game and we were unable to claw back an equaliser in the second half.

The result (combined with a 1-0 victory for Abor Comboni elsewhere) sees us drop to 2nd in the table with 10 points from 5 games. Abor have 12 from 5 games but with another 5 to play there is still everything to play for.

In spite of the final score we were also very grateful to have Accra Hearts of Oak legend Charles Allotey along for the game. Charles was part of the famous ’64 Batallion’ side which won the African Champions League in 2000 and it was terrific to have him along to encouage the players. We hope to welcome him again in future.

Keta Sandlanders 1-0 Abor Comboni

February 14th, 2011 by admin

Keta Sandlanders moved to the top of our group in Ghana’s Volta Regional Division 2 on Saturday after a hard fought 1-0 victory over Abor Comboni. Going into this game the Abor side had won 3 games out of 3 so this was always going to be our most difficult encounter so far but despite having a man sent off early in the second half for a second yellow card, we held on to take the points. Striker John Mensah (with his second goal in 2 games since joining Sandlanders) brought joy to the home fans with what proved to be the winning goal mid-way through the first half.

The result means that Sandlanders now have 10 points from 4 games played. Our final game of the first round is played next Sunday at Abanata FC and another win would ensure we reach the half way point of the group stage on top of the table. Just to remind you, only the top team in the group after all 10 games qualifies for Middle League (with the chance to take a shot at Division One qualification) so we will be looking for top marks in our 6 remaining games.

January 24th, 2011 by admin

Keta Sandlanders drew the first game of their 2011 Ghanaian Division 2 campaign at home to Orderily FC yesterday.

We will give you a bit more detail from the game later this week together with pictures which will be posted to our Flickr account.

Next up is an away game at Ketu Stars next Sunday. Keep following sandlanders.com to see how we do.
