7 years ago

B.A. United on Saturday sealed their return to the Premier League after a decade in the lower tier.

The 'Apostles of Ghana Soccer' drew goalless with Wa African United in Sekondi to finish tops in the Zone I promotion play-offs ahead of former premiership sides, Berekum Arsenal and Real Tamale United.

After concluding the campaign with 7 points from three matches, B.A. United confirmed their place for the 2014-15 Premier League season, thus joining Great Olympics and Feyenoord as the three sides to gain promotion from Division One.

In the other fixture, RTU and Arsenal drew 1-1 at the Robert Mensah Stadium in Cape Coast, a result which was not enough to garner them enough points to challenge for the top.

Daniel Wisdom scored for RTU while Kelly Ayitey found target for Arsenal.

Arsenal ended the campaign with 4 points, three adrift B.A. United with RTU coming third on 2 points. Wa African United picked just one point from a possible 9 points.
