FC Samartex 1996 have clinched the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League title after beating Bibiani GoldStars 1-0 on Sunday, June 2 at the Nsenkyire Sports Complex.

Emmanuel Mamah’s only goal which came in the first half was enough for FC Samartex 1996 to secure their first Ghana Premier League.

Samartex have now joined the greatest clubs from the Western Region to be crowned the Ghana Premier League champions , following in the footsteps of Sekondi Eleven Wise, Hasaacas, and defending champions Medeama SC.

The Timber giants unlocked a new milestone in their history just a season after being promoted into Ghana’s top flight.

Nurudeen Amadu’s men won the league title with two games to spare after Aduana and Medeama SC were handed defeats in their respective games over the weekend.

Across 32 matches, Samartex won 18 games, drew four and suffered 10 defeats powering them to success.

In light of this,Samartex coach Nurudeen Amadu has described the club’s season success victory as an unexpected achievement.

According to Amadu, the initial plan for the season was to improve on their previous campaign, which was their debut in the top-flight. Last season, they finished 10th with 46 points, narrowly avoiding relegation.

In a post match interview, Amadu expressed his gratitude to the club’s management for their unwavering support, marking his first major trophy as a coach.

“Not many at Samartex, including the fans, knew who I was,” he revealed to Kumasi-based Akoma FM.

“The aim was to finish higher than last season, not to win the league. So, winning is a monumental achievement. It’s a dream come true for me.”

“For me, it’s a dream fulfilled. Much gratitude to Prof. Mintah for his recommendation to Samartex. Many thanks also to Edmund Ackah, who placed great faith in me,” he added.

Samartex are set to be crowned champions in their final home game of the season against Accra Lions.
