Hearts of Oak promote young keeper to first team

The Phobians have handed a long-term contract to the promising glovesman and have shipped him into their first team ranks ahead of the upcoming league season

Hearts of Oak have promoted young goalkeeper Richard Baidoo from youth team side to the mainstream senior side following an impressive outing last term with the Auroras.

The 19-year-old shot-stopper will now serve as a backup for first team keeper Ben Mensah following the departure of their former netminder Samuel Akrugu for the forthcoming Ghana Premier League season.

Baidoo, a former Red Bull Academy product has been stupendous at the youth side of the Capital-based club after keeping six clean sheets out of seven appearances last season despite his injury setback.

The budding talented last line of defence will join the mainstream team for their preparations ahead of the impending 2017/18 Ghana’s top-flight league campaign.
