Meanwhile the head coach of the national Beach Soccer team "Black Sharks" expressed satisfaction at the high standard of play especially in the goalscoring department.

"Since Ghana will not be participating at the upcoming Beach Soccer Afcon in Egypt, tournaments such as these will keep the players busy and fit"

Coach Daniel Kotey remains confident that when Ghana returns to continental action next year, the desire to make up for missing Egypt 2019 would motivate his players to excel.

The tournament recorded some of the best crowds at recent beach soccer matches with 34 goals,  4 yellow cards and not a single red card.

Sponsored by CALBank, the winners took home ghs 5,000 cedis in addition to the giant trophy.

Runners up Sea Lions were also awarded ghs 3,000 and had striker Alexander Adjei emerge as Goal King with 7 goals.

In a further boost for the sport, Alo Drink provided  refreshment for the teams officials and fans during the tournament.

Alo Drink is set to formalize their relationship with Beach Soccer Ghana in the coming days.
