Bechem United president Kingsley Owusu Achau has set his sights on winning the domestic double this season after his club reached the MTN FA Cup final on Sunday.
The Hunters beat Aduana Stars 2-0 at Golden City Park in the semi-finals to set up a June 26 date with Hearts of Oak, who eliminated Dreams on Saturday with a 3-2 win.
Kasim Ocansey Mingle’s side are second in the Ghana Premier League standings, although they have some work to do in order to catch Asante Kotoko at the summit.
The Porcupine Warriors boast a nine-point lead over them with six matches left to play, but Achau – better known as Agama in the footballing fraternity – believes a maiden league title is still in reach.
He wants to compete on the African stage once more after the Hunters qualified for the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup as MTN FA Cup champions in 2016.
“We are no more minnows in Ghana football, we have come to stay as a club and compete, nothing is too big for Bechem United,” Agama told Akoma FM.
“If it comes to logistics, one can attest to the fact that we are no pushovers. Our kits are top class, we have four buses. We mean business. Now we are targeting the league trophy as well as the FA Cup.
“And my promise to Bechem people is that, once we win any of the titles, we are going to Africa and our Africa games will be played in here Bechem.”
