FC Samartex 1996 has secured promotion to the Ghana Premier League (GPL) for the first time in the club’s history since its establishment in 1996.
For most of the campaign, the Samreboi-based club that dominated Zone Two of the 2021/22 Division One League has made it with three matches to spare.
The Timbers confirmed their promotion after securing a goalless draw away to Swedru All Blacks, and Ebusua Dwarfs losing 1-0 to Nzema Kotoko in Aiyinase.
