Former Hearts of Oak star Bernard Don Bortey was in attendance as former Asante Kotoko midfielder Francis Akwaffo Boateng launched a new player welfare and development union.
The body, known as Great United Footballers Association (GUFA), was launched in Kumasi last Friday with over 250 members taking part in a float in Kumasi, according to nqanews.blogspot.com.
Akwaffo is the President of the group which seek to unite, promote the welfare and development of many current and ex players.
It is unclear whether the new group is set up to rival the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) which is the umbrella body for most Ghanaian players both home and abroad.
Former Ghana Premier League stars Iddrisu Yahya, Kofi Agyare, Akwasi Bobie-Ansah, Daniel Bomfa, Francis Akwaffo, Gabriel Opoku-Ware, Frank Boateng, and Bashiru Gambo all attended a fundraising dinner which was held at MacLean Joint behind Unity Oil, Santasi on Saturday.
