Hearts of Oak CEO Elated To See The Team Back On The Field

Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak, Mark Donovan Noonan says he is happy to see the team back in action in the Bakatue Cup match on Sunday against Elmina Sharks.

The Phobians were hosted by Elmina giants in the Bakatue Cup match at the Nduom Sports Complex, with the home side winning the trophy 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in regulation time.

The former Premier League opened the scoring through young forward Obeng Junior in the 53rd minute before Sharks pulled level from the spot via Benjamin Boateng.

Mark Noonan, who returned to the country a fortnight ago as the team resumed preparation said after the game before the game took to Twitter and tweeted:

The game is the first either side has been involved in since the suspension of all domestic games after the Anas Expose was premiered on June 6th.

Several members of the Football Association and referees were caught on camera allegedly receiving bribes which led to government calling for the dissolution of the Football Association and suspending all domestic football.

Meanwhile, FIFA, government and other stakeholders are working on getting domestic football back in the country.
