The Ghana Police Service has revived their male football club in the Greater Accra Region that will compete in the Regional League when it finally kicks off.
The Division Two club, Police Nationals FC, will play in the Central Region Division Two League which is set to kick off in January.
The club will play their games in Kasoa in the Central Region but will be training at the Tesano Police Park.
The club existed and played in the Zone Two of the Division One League in the late 90s but was dissolved in 2001 when Nana Owusu Poku was appointed the IGP.
However, in the 2016/17 football season, the side registered with the Central Region Football Association to play in the Division Two League.
With several talented young men and women in the service, the leadership of the GPS want to provide an enabling environment for officers to pursue their football careers while also serving the country as police officers.
Already, the Ghana Police Service has a female team that competes in the Women’s Premier League with several of their players in the various female national teams.
The service is committed to using their platform to aid talented young men to combine their profession with their God-given football talent.
In recent times, several police officers have combined their professional work with football with the most recent officer being Samuel Sarfo who played for Liberty Professionals in the Ghana Premier League, played for the Black Stars B and joined the senior national team the Black Stars before moving out of the country to play professional football in Iran and now Saudi Arabia.
Previously, officers like Constant Mantey and Mohammed Alhassan all played for Hearts of Oak while serving as Police Officers.
