As part of the club’s rebuilding process, The Citizens and managing partners Zenith SEM, are doing whatever they can to assist the Ghanaian club, who cater for girls and boys, women and men in Ghana’s Cape Coast region.  They also run a surf school.


“It’s important we try and meet community needs here, like our relationship with St Cuthbert’s Hospice.  Now we can help footballers overseas as well” said club chairman Chris Tanner.


“Over the coming seasons, we will be supplying gear to Ali Royals from our major sponsors TiDi Nation, and other suppliers and donors.” he added.


In Ghana, club founder Ali Yakubu said “Thank you to Durham City, the committee, the players, and all involved.  We appreciate your support and we wish The Citizens all the best for the remainder of the season.”


Both clubs are also looking at sending a joint junior squad to the prestigious Dana Cup in Denmark in July 2023.
