Cobbinah, Sadick to battle for 2016-17 FA Cup awards

The organising committee of the oldest cup competition has released the list of nominees for the 2017 awards

Asante Kotoko striker Sadick Adams has been nominated for the top award at the 2016/17 Ghana FA Cup which will be held next month, after leading the club to win the trophy last year.

However, he will have to beat competitions from Hearts of Oak midfielder Winful Cobbinah and youngster Isaac Amoah of Amidaus Professionals.

Hearts of Oak former coach Frank Nuttall and Steve Polack who parted ways with Kotoko last month have been nominated for the coach of the year category, while Medeama have been named as the fair play club.

Okyeman Planners striker Richard Ocloo also grabbed two nominations after his five goals in the competition saw his club reach the round of 16. He will battle Sadick for the topscorer as well as David Abagna and Rashid Nortey for the most promising player accolade.
