Today in history: Berekum Chelsea are Ghana Premier League champions

Berekum Chelsea piped RTU by a goal to nil at the Berekum Coronation Park on Wednesday 18th May, 2011 to win the Ghana Premier League

Emmanuel Clottey scored the lone goal that won the Ghana Premier League for the Berekum lads from the spot kick.

This enabled them to wrap up on the 2010/2011 Glo Premier League title with three matches to spare, because the three matches left couldn’t have changed anything on top of the league table.

This is the greatest achievement for a club established in 2000 and this success motivated them to excel in their maiden appearance in the CAF Champions League.

It was just 2009/10 season that the monopoly of Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko in terms of winning the premier league for past 12 years was broken by Aduana Stars a debutant also from  Brong Ahafo like Berekum Chelsea.
