This is the first time a team from Mamprugu in the North East Region of Ghana has qualified for the Division One League since the inception of Association Football in Ghana.

The Walewale Catholic Stars is a Division Two side from Walewale but plays it’s Second Division League in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region.

Since qualifying from Division Three to Division Two, the team has played for twelve seasons and finally settling in for the Long awaited victory.

Last two seasons, they were in the Middle League but lost their first game to league winners, Kassena Nankana FC.

They failed to qualify last season for the Middle League but with adequate preparations, determination and hard work this season, they have finally gotten what they have been fighting for twelve years now.

Coach Emmanuel Amassah has been very tactical and the strength of his side has been his attacking line, with Emmanuel Adongo Kagawa scouring fifteen goals in the League and four goals in the Middle League whiles Jamal Mbappe scored eight goals in the league and three goals in the Middle League.

Salifu Hosiah scored four goals in the league and two in the Middle League.

Walewale Catholic Stars from now will go into the record books as the first team from North East to qualify to the First Division.

The story is an interesting one with so many football administrators and coaches past and present making this journey a success.
