Following the expiration of his contract, Elmina Sharks goalkeeper Richard Attah has bid the club farewell ahead of a reported switch to join Hearts of Oak.
Since arriving in the Ghana top-flight division, the former Okyeman Planners goalkeeper has earned his place as one of the best goalkeepers on the scene; recording 8 clean sheets in 11 appearances in the NC Special Committee.
Attah confirmed his departure in a heartfelt message via his Facebook social media account.
“I write this piece with an emotional pen impregnated with love and unforgettable moments during my time with Elmina Sharks FC.”
“I enjoyed indelible moments both on and off the pitch but like the game itself, they are times you move on.
“Clubs move on from horrid spell and get better same like players move from one club to another. It is time to bid goodbye to my colleagues, to the fans, the club owner and administrators and above all to the people of Cape Coast and all supporters of Elmina Sharks.”
“I leave shoulder high having never lost a single match in 31 attempts at the Ndoum Park with 21 clean sheets to match.”
“It is a record that makes me happy as we collectively fought for it.”
“I will always be a part of Elmina Sharks even when I am outside the country or the continent at large.”
“We were a big family during trying times, happy times and will be friends till eternity.”
The 24-year old added “My new destination will be announced to football world very soon but my first home remains Elmina Sharks FC.
“When Sharks stormed the water body, Preys run away and will continue to run away in my absence.”
Heart of Oak continue to rebuild ahead of the new Ghana football season and the arrival of Richard Attah will offer competition for Richmond Ayi and Ben Mensah.
