Nsoatreman FC ended their long wait for Ghana Premier League football with a narrow 2-1 win over Tamale City FC in the Division One League Zone One play-off final at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday.

Promotion to the top flight caps a brilliant turnaround to their season, which had a slow start.

At the end of the league season, Nsoatreman FC and Tamale City FC both had 71 points and even on head-to-head after winning 1-0 at their respective home grounds.

After a goalless first-half, the Sunyani-based outfit took the lead in the 56th minute through Samuel Ofori but Tamale City equalised seven minutes later with a penalty from Bismark Asare and the game ended 1-1 in regulation time.

In the 98th minute, Charles Asante made it 2-1 for Nsoatreman to send their fans into ecstasy.

The result propelled Nsoatreman to Ghana’s top flight division for the first time in their history. They will join Samartex FC and Kotoko Royals as the newcomers for next season’s Ghana Premier League campaign.
