Blessing scored nine (9) goals in the first round and added 8 in the second half to win the goal king award with 19 goals.

He grabbed two hat-tricks and two braces in the process. Last season Kofi Owusu emerged as the top scorer with 19 goals, so the Liberty Professionals whiz kid fell too short of it, but Augustine Okrah last two seasons scored 16 goals to win the crown.

Latif Blessing scored against ten different clubs.

Before the start of the season, Latif Blessing threw a big challenge to Yahaya Mohammed that he was better than him in relation to all the attributes of a good player, being dribbling, defending, stamina and goal scoring. He added that he would beat him to the top scorer award this season.

Yahaya Mohammed hit back at Latif Blessing that maybe he doesn’t know him well, so he should go to Youtube and watch his videos and come back
