The shot-stopper revels in his maiden outing for the 20-time Ghanaian champions

Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Ernest Sowah is happy by his first appearance for the club after a move last month. 

The 30-year-old completed a two-year transfer to the Phobians in May, joining from arch-rivals Asante Kotoko

On Sunday, he made his debut for the Accra-based side in a 1-1 draw with leaders Medeama in the Ghana Premier League. 

"We played very well and personally think I did quite okay too considering that I haven't played in a competitive game for a very long time," Sowah told his club's official website. 

"It has been a difficult moment for me but I am just happy to be back playing and playing for a big team like Accra Hearts of Oak.

"The Medeama match is my first game and I think there is more to come from me. 

"I felt bad with the officiating but we have to dust ourselves up and look forward to our next game."

Sowah's move to Hearts marked the end of his misery, having been frozen out at Kotoko for long over issues of trust.

 "After God, it's the fans that are holding me," the Ghana international added. 

"I thank them for the support and I want to work hard and make them proud with my performance for the team."

Sowah joined Kotoko on a three-year contract in 2015 following a one-year spell with Congolese club Don Bosco. 

He previously played for Berekum Chelsea and now lower-tier side Tema youth.

The shot-stopper was one of Ghana’s three goalkeepers at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
