Ex-Ghana international, Nii Odartey Lamptey was appointed head coach to salvage the plight of Elmina Sharks in the second round of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League.
Lamptey managed to lift the Sharks from the harsh reality of relegation battle into 15th place at the end of last season where they garnered 41 points.
The 2021/22 Ghana Premier League will be his first full season in charge of Elmina Sharks barring any unforeseen circumstances.
The proprietor of the Glow-Lamp International School has set a target of retaining Shark in the top flight by pushing harder to finish in mid-table at the end of the current season.“My main objective now is for Sharks to be from one to eighth position, we should be there.
“Not to fight like we did last season.
“I think not bad, I think what I was expecting from them maybe I think 60% out of 100%.
“I’m sure there is a room for improvement so I’m sure our next match they will do better than this.” Odartey Lamptey said.
The Accra based club managed to hold Elmina Sharks to 1-1 draw despite fielding inexperienced players in their opening premier league game at the Accra Sports Stadium. Lions went down on the 64th minute courtesy Sharks’ Michelle Sarpong who is on loan from Ghana Premier League holders, Hearts of Oak. They however pulled parity in the latter minutes of the match when talismanic Rauf Salifu scored with six minutes to full time.
Formed in 2015, the Accra based club were crowned winners of the 2017 Greater Accra Division Two Zone IV. They earned promotion into Division One three years after its foundation and finally into the Ghana Premier League at the end of the 2020/21 Division One Zone III League season.
