• Samuel Ashie-Quaye becomes first player to score in the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League
Great Olympics and Bechem United kicked the first ball to open the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League season sponsored by BetPawa.
Having defeated the Hunters in the GHALCA G6 final, Olympics had a stern encounter before securing a slim win in today’s game.
A win for Yaw Preko gives them a perfect start in absence of Annor Walker who after over two seasons has switched camp to newly-promoted FC Samartex.
Kassim Mingle and his boys also came in as a revenge for the G6 defeat but there was nothing they could do to share spoils or turn things around.
It was hard for the two side to roll the ball into the post until the 82nd minute breakthrough from Samuel Ashie Quaye to put the Dade Boy ahead for first victory of the new season.
However, former Black Stars and Udinese midfielder, Emmanuel Agyeman Badu made his GPL debut with the Accra giants having played in the G6 competition.
The Ghanaian international signed a short-term deal for the GPL giants following his return from abroad.
Great Olympics will have to prepare for their city rivals, Accra Hearts in their next fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium whiles the Hunters takes on the title holders, Asante Kotoko in Bechem.
