A roller coster. 

Ups, downs, twists and turns, but what a ride. 

With 17 games played so far in Ghana Premier league 2022/23, our attempts to retain the league trophy have been quite eventful. 

We have recorded both excellent performances especially at home and not so good results in few away games.  

The Porcupine Warriors have been hugely challenged with injuries, suspensions and below par officiating in few games. 

Notwithstanding these challenges, we have been the best scoring team in the league this season having recorded 25 goals in 17 games . 

We are also unbeaten at home, a feet we must continue to maintain and solidify.

Having scored 25 goals, we have conceded 16 and kept 4 clean sheets in the process. We have won 7 , drawn 6 and lost 4 games so far. 

Star boy Stephen Desse Mukwala is our top scorer with 8 goals , 5 assists and 4 MVPS ( highest in the league ) 

Nicholas Mensah follows with 3 goals and Eric Zeze has two goals. 

We are currently occupying the 3rd position on the league log with 5 points separating us from the league leaders.


We started the season with a new technical direction with the appointment of Coach Seydou Zerbo as the head coach.

We added a couple of new players including Steven Mukwala, Eric Zeze, Nicholas Mensah, Enock Morrison, Nicholas Osei Bonsu, John Tedeku, etc to replace players who left after the end of last season. 

We have also boosted our squad with sensational Rashid Nortey, experienced Mohammed Alhassan, and Brazilian forward Matheus De Souza. 


Although we have not had consistency in results, we are still in pursuit of the our ultimate target of retaining the league and to achieve this, we definitely have to establish our supremacy through hardwork and consistency in performance.
