Tema City FC scouts for new talents

Tema City Football Club (FC), one of Ghana's fast growing football club registered in the Division Two league of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), is organizing a day's recruitment exercise for young talents across the country.

The recruitment exercise which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, February 14, 2021 at the Presco Park in Tema will scout for male talents between the ages of 15 to 19 years.

Mr Eric Jerry Aidoo, owner and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Tema City FC, speaking on the modalities of the exercise, said they are expecting about 200 people across the country to justify their inclusion into the Tema City Football Club.

The recruitment exercise seeks to give new players the opportunity to join the football club since most of their players have travelled outside the country to join other top-flight clubs in the world.

The focus for this exercise is on talents hidden in villages so as to give them the necessary exposure, training and skill development.

Mr Aidoo said "much of our focus is on village players across the country such as North, Eastern, Takoradi and the rest and not necessarily on talents in Terms because the people from outside the city need much exposure compared to those in Greater Accra."

He also mentioned that they are expecting top international scouts and a former Ghanaian international footballer who doubles as the coach of the football club to assist them scout for good players.

Mr Eric Jerry Aidoo, touching on Covid-19 safety protocols, said there will be a Covid team to make sure all the directives are taken seriously in order not to endanger the lives of management and participants.

He said "we will not allow everybody to enter, only first eleven players and we'll check their temperatures and make sure their hands are sanitized before and after every match."

Mr Aidoo also encouraged parents and guardians to allow their children to take advantage of this opportunity as talent is free and would not be required to pay any amount of money as registration.

Tema City FC was founded in July 2017 by businessman and politician Mr. Eric Jerry Aidoo who is the  current Greater Accra Regional Youth Organiser of the Convention People's Party (CPP).
