MP Joseph Cudjoe leads Norwegian football scout on talent hunt in Effia

A representative of the enterprising Norwegian football scouting agency, Boss Agency, William Larsen Nyaborg, has spent three days from 9th to 11th Feb in the Effia constituency of the Western Region looking for talents that would “potentially grow into the next crop of global football stars.”

At the invitation of Joseph Cudjoe, Member of Parliament for Effia, William Larsen Nyaborg watched football matches amongst the invited teams, observed training sessions of the invited football clubs and also engaged in other football-related activities to appreciate the soccer climate in Effia Constituency and its immediate environs.

During one of the soccer matches at the Effiakuma Police Astroturf Park, William Larsen Nyaborg told reporters about the amazing talents he had seen.

“Ghana has amazing football talents. The supply is endless. I’m very impressed with what I’ve seen, especially the technical abilities of the players. What is outstanding is how the young players are able to cope with the old players”

“With the right training attitude, guidance and equipment, I am already seeing a host of talents that can perform incredibly well on the world stage. And that is why I’m here to see what can be done to make it happen”.

Players from football clubs, notably Team Move, Bis Paradise SC, Future Stars, and Ville Afrique participated in the trials.

Sixteen (16) players, who proved exceptional, have been pencilled for onward monitoring and the necessary potential transition for teams abroad.

In a telephone conversation, Joseph Cudjoe Member of Parliament for Effia reiterated to ConnectNews his quest to make Effia synonymous with football just as Bukom is, with boxing.

“Also is my belief in holistic development. It is not always about building schools, roads or other infrastructure development, which as an MP, I already do. I want to go beyond that and focus more on human development”

“If you look around, there is a massive attention on sports development. That is why you see the number of Astroturf fields and the ever popular Effia Community League. These are all geared towards the Effia Vision”.
