Ahead of the January competition, 24 players have been called by the technical team headed by Coach Boakye Yiadom with assistance from Coach Eddie Odamtey.

 


The players include; captain of the side Georgina Sam from Reformers Ladies of the Ghana Prisons Service, Theresa Mills, Gloria Darko, Benedicta Adjei ,Joana Owusu, Joanita Korwu, Abass Ramatu, Rejoice Awaga, Emelia Aggrey and Rachael Bamfo from Extinguishers of the Ghana Fire Service.

Speaking on the preparations of the team,Coach Odamtey noted that the team was in good shape with every player fully fit and in high spirits for the tournament.

 


He said the camping date for the team was yet to be determined but until then the team would continue with their regular training schedules every morning at the hockey stadium.

 


Coach Odamtey added that he was optimistic that the team would do all it can to qualify to the next round of the league and  make it to the World Cup and Olympic qualifying zone.
