Coach Odoom gives update on Auroras

Accra Hearts of Oak coach Edward Nii Odoom said he expects the youth side (Auroras) to blossom with time as he has identified some talents that could be the future of the club.

He has therefore appealed to those calling for the promotion of players to the first team to be a little circumspect in their demands as the boys will need to be fully prepared before being pushed up.

“Currently, there are up to seven players in our youth setup that could be promoted to the first team but, I want to see them play one more season in their league to gain more experience”, Coach Odoom told Hearts Media.

The gaffer who also doubles as head of our youth team added that the league competition at that level is so rigid and tough as beliefs that competing at that level will toughen them up for the future.

“I want to see how they will cope with these demands and how well they will perform”, he said, adding that there will surely be promotions from Auroras to the first team next season.

Auroras compete in the Greater Accra Division Two League and, have been a major force at that division since joining the league a couple of years ago.

Our first team currently has four players (Mitchelle Sarpong, Abdul Manaf Umar, Richard Baidoo and James Serwonu-out on loan) who were promoted from the youth team.
