Amassing 61points in the Ghanaian League which happens to be the most competitive season ever, Daniel Afriyie Bannie, spiting the number 18 Jersey shot the Phobians in the lead on the stroke of halftime, stepping into the shoes of Ishmael Addo who wore the same Jersey number to clinch an enviable three times goal King and Mahatma Otoo who also grabbed the goal king award with the same Jersey number 18.
For eleven consecutive years, Hearts languished in the soccer wilderness without a trophy, affirming a one time former President (Kuffour) era, who happens to have managed the bitterest rival of the Club (Kotoko) said he will make sure Hearts doesn’t win the league, questioning why a single Club will win the league Six consecutive times in a roll.
