Ghana Commercial Bank were crowned champions of the Nii Amanor Dodoo Cup in Accra.
The match was played over the weekend at the Legon Ajax Park as the drizzling rains gave some cool temperature to the atmosphere.
GCB Bank smashed away the hosts, KPMG, in the finals with a 1-0 win in a pulsating encounter after both sides beat their opponent through penalties in their first games.
GCB Bank created decent chances but failed to make the best of it in the game and KPMG after settling in the game also created some chances through their poster boy Collins Agyapong. He, hwoever, failed to get a goal for KPMG.
The Nii Amanor Dodoo tournament was organised by the KPMG as a fitting arrangement to appreciate the work of the legend after serving the firm for over 40 years.
The tournament featured winners GCB Bank, Ecobank Ghana and Consolidated Bank Ghana (CBG) and host KPMG.
