He has expressed joy for scoring his first goal in the competition, saying “I just want to take this time and moment to thank the Almighty God for what He has done for me so far and continue to do every day in my life. And also a very big thank you and appreciation to my teammates, fans, staffers, and especially to Frank Allison, for giving me that wonderful pass in the 71st minute and, getting a first 1-0 victory over Gedeh County in Zwedru was a great step to moving forward in this County Meet”.
“We were defeated in 2019/2020 National County sports meet by Nimba County in the semi-final 1-0, which wasn’t a good sign but yet we are back in the County Meet. It’s not an easy task, every county wants to win. I want my teammates to keep the faith and be focused as we continue this journey”, he said.
