New Edubiase are counting the positives despite exiting the CAF Confederation Cup in their debut season.
The Ghana MTN FA Cup holders were bundled out in the first round after losing 5-4 on penalties to Congolese side Diables Noir in the return fixture.
The ambitious Ghanaian side put up a decent display in the two-legged ties but failed to progress thanks to the lottery of spot-kicks.
The campaign of the Bekwai-based side was plagued with financial difficulties which largely attributed to their exit from the competition.
But club President Abdul Salam Yakubu is thrilled with their involvement in the continent’s second-rated inter-club competition and has vowed to defend their FA Cup title to make their second appearance next year.
“We’re very happy that we got the opportunity to play in Africa for the first time,” Yakubu told Happy FM
“Almost all the players were playing in the competition for the first time and I believe they have garnered experience from the two-legged ties.
“We’re very focus to defend our title and hopefully we’ll be playing in Africa again.”
“We have never regretted playing in Africa and when the opportunity comes again, we’ll grab it both hands.”
Edubiase will turn their attention to this weekend’s MTN FA Cup with a trip to Starke FC.
