Ghana Premier League side Berekum Chelsea have bolstered their squad with 11 new signings for the 2015-16 season.
Notable names among the list include the club’s former captain Mohammed Abdul Basit, who left Allies in 2013 for Kuwaiti side Sulaibikhat.
Former Ghana U17 star Sadick Adams and Richard Oti have also joined from Al Fehia and Asante Kotoko respectively.
Others include midfielder Brimah Mohammed (Golden Lions Soccer Academy), Safianu Awudu (Atebubu Esperance), Saddat Ussif (Bauxite City FC), Peter Osei (KFC Samosa) Stephen Owusu Kaakyire (Techiman City FC), Karim Abedi (Buipe Riverpool FC), Aikins Asante (Dunkwa United FC) and Constant Noriegah Kotoka (Vita Club- Congo).
Chelsea have also promoted youngsters Bernard ‘Messi’ Kyeremeh, Samuel Takyi and Ameyaw Collins from the youth team to first team.
Communication director, Isaac Amponsah, believes the arrival of the new players will bring healthy competition in the squad.
“We’re very happy with the players we’ve been able to sign because of their quality,” Amponsah told Goal.
“Coach Solomon Odwo and his technical team will have several options to choose from during matchdays even when there are injury concerns. It will help us to achieve our aims next season,” he added.
Goal can reveal that the club has parted ways with seven of the players who played major roles in their title challenge last season. They include Benjamin Boateng, Abdul Rashid, Justice Anane, Bennett Ofori, Richard Osei Agyemang, Richard Annang and goalkeeper Michael Sai.
Chelsea finished fourth last season with 44 points, eight points below winners Ashantigold.
Their star striker Kofi Owusu emerged as the league’s top scorer with 19 goals.
