New Life Football Academy

Samuel’s youth was just football...! He began playing competitive football at the age of 10 in the suburbs of Accra where he grew up. His passion for the sport grew as he did – playing junior leagues to the professional level.


As he retired from football, he realized the support young and talented athletes in the game need in pursuant of their dreams – something he lacked growing up!


So, at the later part of his career he met with a young sport entrepreneur called Tom Vernon who shared similar passion and interest for the sport and want to transform lives through football.  In 1999, the birth of Right to Dream was realized where Samuel was an integral part of it. He helped coach, develop and build characters necessary for young athletes to achieve their goals in the sport. To date; Samuel can be proud of many graduates including Majeed Waris and David Accam; both of whom he recruited, coached and trained.


With his immense experience in the game, and as well as youth development Samuel started “New Life Academy” and “ The Mo Foundation” – both organizations are geared toward helping young but talented athletes achieve their full potential through sports, education and character development. His vision is to expand on his achievements and see every potential and dream fulfilled. His mission is to empower and challenge athletes from disadvantaged backgrounds to realize their dreams. Something he is determined and committed to see happen.


Currently, Samuel owns and runs a fully sponsored residential football academy in Accra with 25 registered athletes. The Academy plays in the 2nd division league in Ghana and affiliated with the Ghana Football Association. Other affiliations include St. Mirren FC in Scotland.
