In a tribute to Deli Alli’s fantastic miss against Stoke on Sunday here are my top six football misses. 1. The man himself. A chance to put the game to bed with the goal gaping. Fingers crossed he still gets a Premier League winner’s medal in May. 2. In the 2008-09 season Chris Iwelumo was flying […]Read More Football’s greatest misses
Despite it being almost two years it barely felt like I’d been away when I went through customs at Kotoka Airport in Accra. The same humidity, big queues for immigration and Dan being late to meet me. As always though my experiences in Ghana were huge fun and a lot of work was completed. I’ve […]Read More A Ghanaian Summer – 2015

With over four hours to kick-off Chris, […]Read More Ghana V Zambia
Apologies for the delay in the latest blog post, but since I last wrote seven new volunteers have arrived and five of those have left. They’ve been completing a large variety of work. Chris Minch has settled in well to the role of Assistant Volunteer Coordinator. His time has been taken up by airport pickups, […]Read More Summer school, football coaching and a haircut
“Three months in Ghana? Wow, that’s a long time,” is the phrase I’ve been hearing a lot recently. Sure, three months in West Africa isn’t the typical summer vacation but I know from experience that the time will zip by in a flurry of volunteers, projects, blog posts and Azonto moves. This summer I’m acting […]Read More Ghana, Ghana, Ghana!
