Former Ashanti Gold manager Bashir Hayford has signed a one-year deal to become the next coach of Ebusua Dwarfs ahead of the 2017-18 season.

The Mysterious Club were without a coach after their contract with Brazilian Ricardo da Rocha was terminated mutually last week despite the club finishing within the top four for the first time in seven seasons.

Hayford guided Ashanti Gold to clinch the 2015 league title but surprisingly resigned from his post in March after just eight matches into last season when the club was sitting 15th on the log.
