Joshua Twasam, the eldest son of the late Christian Atsu, has received a prestigious accolade as he was named the Player of the Year in the Northumberland Football League.
His exceptional performances played a crucial role in guiding his team to victory in the U-9 league, and his talent has been duly acknowledged by the league as he was honored with the title of Most Valuable Player (MVP).
Representing the Gosforth Football Club, Joshua displayed his skills and abilities throughout the season, contributing to his team’s success. His remarkable performance also contributed to his team’s triumph in the final of the Pro Motiv8 Tournament held in February.
The Northumberland Football League, a well-known organization for youth and mini-soccer in England, provides inclusive opportunities for children and teenagers of diverse abilities, backgrounds, and genders to engage in the sport.
Overseeing these leagues and programs is the Northumberland Football Association, the governing body responsible for football activities in the historic county of Northumberland, England.
It is worth noting that Christian Atsu tragically passed away due to an earthquake that impacted Turkey and Syria. Christian Atsu had made significant contributions to Ghanaian football, representing the national team in 65 matches and scoring nine goals.
The recognition of Joshua Twasam as the Player of the Year in the Northumberland Football League not only acknowledges his own potential and talent but also serves as a testament to the enduring legacy of his late father, Christian Atsu.
