“We are poised for the ACCC Trophy”-Sharkia team manager
Accra, The team manager of Sharkia Hockey team from Egypt, Khaled Saied has said his club is well prepared and in shape to win the upcoming Africa Cup for Club Championship (ACCC), slated at the Theodosia Okoh Hockey pitch in Accra from 20th to 28th January, 2018.
Saied’s team Sharkia, who would be playing their first game against the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) male hockey team at 6:30 pm on Saturday 20th January made this known after the Egyptians arrived in Ghana on Wednesday.
Saied in an interview with GNA Sports at the Kotoka International Airport, said his team is prepared and poised to win the trophy at stake.
We have prepared for this championship very well and we are determined to win this tournament and all the players have trained hard to get here.
They are all ready to give out their best to win this year’s ACCC and no team can stop them from attaining their set target.
Saied noted with optimism though his team has not made it to the championship in the previous two seasons.
Though we have not been in the championship for the last two years, the players have insisted they would use that as a motivation to win this year’s edition and the technical team have so much trust in them he added.
On a club posing a threat to their ambitions, Saied said I know the Eastern Club of Egypt and Trustees Hockey club of Ghana would pose a major threat, but we would make sure to give our all to win.
The Sharkia hockey team has won the African Championship Hockey League on 23 occasions, with 12 consecutive African titles, a sports record in the Encyclopedia of World Sport.
