Ghanaian Striker Honoured In Egypt

JOHN ANTWIGhanaian striker, John Antwi has reaped rewards for his goal scoring prowess after finally getting his hands on the trophy for goal king of the Egyptian Premier League for 2013/14.

It was a hugely successful year for the former Hearts of Oak striker; his eleven goals was enough to earn him the top scorer gong in Egypt’s top football division, even though his club Ismaily failed to make the post-season.

Antwi beat off nearest challenger, Khaled Kamar of Shorta who scored a total of ten goals at the end of the regular season divided into two groups of 11 teams each of which the top two in each section qualified for the championship round of four teams in round robin format to determine the Egyptian champions.

Ismaily could only finish fourth in Group 2, albeit just three points behind both Zamalek and Petrojet who are currently engaging Group 1 top two, Al Ahly and Smouha in the post-season phase.

Only one of John Antwi’s 11 goals came from the penalty spot, with seven being netted in the first half of the games he featured in all season long.

It’s a massive improvement on Antwi’s total haul of five goals in 14 games during his first season (2012/13) in the land of the Pharaohs.

“Egyptian League Top Scorer 2013/2014. Glory be to GOD,” the striker posted on his Facebook timeline along with a photograph of his winner’s trophy on Monday evening.

Despite being hit with a five match suspension during the league season, Antwi still maintained his form in the league and could not be overtaken.
