LISCR FC have appointed Ghanaian technician, Samuel Quaye, as their new head coach on a two-year deal.
The gaffer was announced by the club on September 30.
His appointment comes following the departure of Gambian coach Tapha Manneh, who was appointed head coach of Liberia’s men’s U-20 national team. Before leaving LISCR, coach Manneh won five major titles, including a league title, two FA Cups, and two Super Cups.
During his debut season in the Liberian League, Manneh made all the right headlines in the league when he reached a phenomenal milestone by setting a new unbeaten record of 22 league games, breaking the 19 games unbeaten record of the late Gabriel Johns when he served as head coach of LPRC Oilers.
New coach Quaye previously worked as head coach of Accra Great Olympics, Maranatha FC of Togo, assistant coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, and Aduana Stars of the Ghanaian Premier League. In his new adventure, Quaye will be looking to do better than his predecessor when he stands in the coaching box to lead the Shipping Boys for the upcoming league season.
LISCR ended the 2020/21 league season as runners-up for the second consecutive season behind champions LPRC Oilers. Coach Quaye will kick off their new league season against traditional club Invincible Eleven (IE) that has reportedly acquired the space of BYC-II. His first big test will follow on match-day two when LISCR travels away to defending champions Oilers.
