Mr Aquah said several of the top talents in the area were lost over the years due to the lack of a well-organised Association. 

“The formation of a fresh and ADFA would mitigate the challenges,” he said and urged team owners, coaches, supporters and players to maintain self-discipline and abide by the rules of the Association. 

Mr Aquah was optimistic that the new League would bring unity and togetherness in fostering development within the district.
