The management and playing body of Akatsi All Stars have presented their recently won Division Two League Trophy to the Board and Patron of the club in Akatsi. 

The presentation, which was held in a brief ceremony, aimed at celebrating the club's victory to the second tier league and to officially introduce the team to its financiers. 

The Patron and Board of the club are Togbgui Dorglo Anumah VI, Paramount Chief of Avenor traditional Area, Dumegah Joseph Kwaku Hogli, known as Lovely, and Benard Ahiafor,  Member of Parliament for Akatsi South. 

This is the club's highest success since its formation in 1984. 

Akatsi All Stars had an incredible stride in the regional division two league, surpassing over 56 other division two league clubs from the preliminary stages to the Sub-middle league before the  Super Middle League.

At the Super Middle League,  eight (8) clubs who qualified were grouped in two, Group A and B. Matches were played from Monday through to Friday in the exception of Saturday, which was to cater for a likely playoff, and on Sunday the two teams who topped their groups met for an intriguing and colorful final.

Akatsi All Stars after 3 games with Yadzo Oti Warriors, Roberto FC, and Volta Rangers topped Group A with six points 2 goals, while Home Stars FC lost no match during the super middle league. They amassed 9 points with 6 goals. 

The Champions of Champions between the two top teams produced no goal in both halves, with their attackers missing the chances that came their way.

Several efforts in a bid to break the deadlock were wasted as both teams settled on penalties to determine the winner.

The lots went in favor of Akatsi All Stars by 3-1 to earn a maiden promotion to the National Division One, which was greeted with massive celebrations from the playing body, management, and fans of Akatsi based team.
