Laryea Kingston steps down as U-17 Coach


Head Coach of the National Under-17 team, Laryea Kingston has announced his resignation from the position of head coach of Ghana’s National Men’s Under-17 Football Team following the team’s 2-1 loss to Burkina Faso at the Under 17 WAFU Zone B Championship.

The championship which is being hosted by Ghana at the University of Ghana Stadium in Legon, will determine representatives from the sub-regional bloc for the upcoming Africa Under-17 competition.

Unfortunately, Ghana’s loss means they have been eliminated from contention, with Burkina Faso progressing to the finals and earning a spot at the continental Championship.

During his post-game press conference after the loss, Kingston revealed that his decision to step down was made prior to the competition, regardless of its outcome.

He expressed his commitment to improving Ghanaian football but felt that his time as the U-17 coach had come to an end.

He further elaborated, “After we returned from Russia, I decided that regardless of the result, I would be moving on.

So, in this instance, I’m resigning as the Under-17 Coach after this tournament. I had already made that decision before the tournament commenced.”

Kingston’s decision to resign marks the end of his tenure as the U-17 coach, and he remains focused on contributing to the development and improvement of football in Ghana.
