GPRTU win Road Safety anniversary Gala

Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) defeated the Motor Traffic Transport Unit (MTTU) of the Ghana Police Service 1-0 in the finals to win a special football gala played at the Legon Ajax Park on Saturday. The game, which formed part of activities marking the 10th anniversary celebrations of the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) and Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), saw both teams piling up pressure but failed to score as they squandered obvious goal scoring chances till half time. On resumption, GPRTU redoubled its efforts and snatched the winner 10 minutes inside the second half through Nana Antwi who scored from a close angle. MTTU launched a last minute onslaught but the defence of their opponents managed to wither the storm. On their way to the finals, MTTU beat Metro Mass Transport Limited 4-3 on penalties and eliminated the combined team of NRSC and DVLA 3-2 on penalties while GPRTU edged out Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority 1-0. The 'Best Player' award was won by Obeng Ampadu of MTTU while Kwame Sarfo of NRSC/DVLA won the 'Best Goalkeeper' award. The celebration was on the theme: "Road Safety is a shared and collective responsibility."
