The Ghana Army Handball team had seen tremendous improvements under the tutelage of head coach, WO1 Albert Bonney.

The past 8 years had also been marked by stellar achievements and consistent excellence with remarkable performances, from individual accolades to team triumphs.

The narrative began in 2018 when Amanfi Gilbert was crowned the Best Right winger and Raphael Hagan as best goalkeeper in the men’s category at the end of the league season.

The following year, the Ghana Gas Handball League witnessed a surge in competition, with Ghana Army improving from their previous 5th position to 2nd position indicating their growth and resilience. Individual brilliance shone through players like Seth Botchway excelling as the Best Left Back, while Ako Ernestina emerged as the Top Goal scorer.

In 2022, the Ghana Army men’s team continued their impressive run, clinching the 2nd position once again, a testament to their sustained excellence under Coach Bonney’s mentorship. Amanfi Gilbert’s consistent performances earned him yet another Best Right winger accolade, alongside Raphael Hagan Marshal as the Best Goalkeeper, and Botchway Seth as the Best Left Back.

With focus on female development in handball, Dzegu Akos received the Best Left wing award. The discovery of Adorshie Antoinette as promising talent further solidified the Army team.

As the years progressed, Coach Bonney’s strategic guidance propelled his sides to greater heights, culminating in their triumph as GAHA League winners and GHALCA Championship Cup winners in 2023.

Under his guidance, Seidu Bintu emerged as the top Goal Scorer in the Under 20 Division at the recently ended IHF zone 3 challenge trophy.

Coach Bonney’s unwavering dedication and tactical strategies have not only transformed individual players but also earned the Army a mark in the Greater Accra Handball League.

Prior to the commencement of the 2024 handball league, the Ghana Army team have had two friendly encounters against civilian side Cantonment Youth with a win in all.

The Ghana Army team after becoming a force to reckon with, head coach WO1 Albert Bonney anticipates a tough league season ahead.
