Medeama SC have announced the signing of 11 new players ahead of the start of the new Ghana Premier League season this weekend.
The most high-profile signing is former Asante Kotoko striker Kwame Boateng, who is joined by Solomon Wireku and Randy Kwasi Owusu from second-tier club Mpusuaman FC and former Joel Bouzou Rangers left-back Bright Enchil.
Youngsters Richard Boadu and Samuel Appiah join from Phar Rangers, while James Anane Kwarteng (Corner Babies), Ebenezer Ackahbi (Achiesu FC), Gideon Acquah (Accra FC), Tahiru Awudu (Konongo Shooting Stars) and Ali Ouattara (Real Tamale United) have also signed for the Tarkwa-based club.
"Our plans are to bolster the squad, need to assist the technical staff and plan to win more trophies this season," Chief Executive James Essilfie told the club's official website.
"These players were carefully selected based on the technical team recommendation on quality, commitment, mental toughness and humility.
"I have no doubt in my mind that with a little support from management and club president the skill will not be the only limit but the ultimate of winning the trophy for the first time.
"Though the task ahead is insurmountable but with little determination, we can get there."
Medeama will open their 2018 Ghana Premier League campaign at home to Karela United on Sunday.
