Ajax Amsterdam and Cameroon goalkeeper Andre Onana have donated a pair of signed football gloves and jersey to Arhin Aboagye, a talented Ghanaian shot-stopper who is languishing at the Nsawam Prison.

The Dutch-based goalkeeper, Onana made a promise after watching a documentary by TV3 journalist Juliet Bawuah tiled “Football Behind Bars”. He vowed to send the Ghanaian inmate a pair of signed football gloves and jersey and true to his words, he has shipped the items to Ghana.
Arhin Aboagye who is saving a jailed team in Nsawam prison narrates how he always wanted to become a professional goalkeeper until he had a brush with the law a few years ago, a situation which put a huge dent on his dreams.

“I always wanted to become a goalkeeper but my parents preferred having him in school instead. I wasn’t a brilliant student so I knew sports and football was my only way out. Unfortunately, I lost my way at some point and so I could not complete my education and also couldn’t pursue football. My truant and deviant ways finally landed me in jail.

The Nsawam Prison organized a football game for the inmate as part of the Prison’s Champion of Champions Cup which is a season finale to the league organized by the Service every year. His performance in the game was impressive which he was interviewed by a journalist from TV3 Juliet Bawuah and he mentions Cameroon international Adre Onana as his role model. A boagye said he looks up to Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana and says he hopes to emulate the success of the young Cameroonian goalie.

Ajax Star watched the video of the documentary on twitter promised to send gloves and signed jersey to Ahrin Aboagye through TV3 Head of sports Micheal Oti Adjei.

It was confirmed by Micheal Oti Adjei who is Head of Sports at Tv3 – the station which first aired the story of Arhin that Cameroon international has sent the gloves and jerseys to Arhin.
