You most probably have read about a young player who set mindblowing records in the field of sports at the just ended Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) games held at the University of Ghana.
But what you probably don’t know is that the ex Olympics forward and GUSA games record holder Abel Manomey is a Catholic.
Abel Manomey was born to a catholic family and has a brother who is a priest by name Rev. Fr. Jerry Manomey.
His home parish is the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Derby Avenue in Accra.
Abel Manomey had his name written in gold in the history books of the 2020 GUSA games by becoming the highest scorer for men’s football when he featured for the University of Education, Winneba.
The former Accra Great Olympics and Hearts of Oak youth team hitman netted 10 times in 10 games in this year’s edition of the competition appearing in almost all headlines associated with the games.
This includes a stunning five-goal performance in a single match to ensure UEW eased past GIJ in their last game of this year’s campaign.
His all-time tally now stands at 39 goals in 35 games in six GUSA appearances.
Abel Manomey was one of the leading goalscorers in the Ghana Premier League before a career-threatening injury stalled his progress in 2017.
He scored 20 goals in 15 appearances for Great Olympics during his first stint with the club.
Abel is currently a free agent after his contract with Great Olympics expired and currently a masters student of UEW.
