Ghana Premier League new boys Techiman City FC have received equipment worth $5000 from their supporters in Canada and the United States of America.

The Canadian supporters group led by Nketsiah Yawson and Amo Appiah donated equipment including boots, training kits and travelling bags worth $3000 to the club after a brief meeting with owner and bankroller Charles Kwadwo Ntim, popularly known as Micky Charles.

Also, supporters in Worcester Massachusetts, USA, led by Yaw Sam donated $1,500 worth of equipment and have pledged to do more in the coming days, while former Asante Kotoko and BA United striker Asamoah Arhin also donated equipment worth $500.

Ntim was full of praise after receiving the gifts and said it’d help the club to achieve its aims.

"We're very grateful to the supporters in Canada and USA. They've shown their unflinching support for the club through cash and kind and we hope to have more in the future," Ntim told Goal.

"It's our aim to make every supporter loud and proud by maintaining our premier league status at the end of the season.

"The next destinations to visit are Netherlands, United kingdom, Italy and Spain. We're meeting the people from Techiman in the diaspora, with the aim of getting them closer to the club and to feel at home through football. It's their own and with their help, those in Ghana will continue to enjoy premier league action every weekend," he added.

Techiman are seventh on the log after ten games, with 15 points. They host leaders Wa All Stars, who eliminated them in the round of 32 of the FA Cup, at the Ohene Ameyaw Park next weekend.
