The Ghana FA and Medeama Sporting Club have heaped praises on out-going Managing Director for Goldfields Peter Turner for his commitment to football funding.
Turner, who doubles as Executive Vice President of West Africa Region, took over an existing sponsorship deal between the mining giants and the Black Stars and saw to its execution.
He moved to Ghana in 2008 when he was appointed Vice President of Operations.
Ghana FA vice-president Fred Pappoe, ex-Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah and Deputy GFA General Secretary Isaac Addo were at the farewell dinner on Monday night.
Pappoe said: “Now that you going back South Africa and getting close to the decision makers, we hope you will answer our calls when we come knocking on your doors.
Goldfields’ sponsorship since 2005 has been described as the turning point in Ghana two consecutive Fifa World Cup appearances in 2006 and 2010
Tarkwa-based Medeama SC, a Premier League side, also announced a sponsorship deal with Goldfields in May.
The team finished fourth in their debut season in the top flight.
At the ceremony, Club president Moses Armah, Board Member Lawyer Larbi Amoah and the club’s spokesperson Ebenezer Aidoo presented autographed new kits for next season.
