AUDIO: Laryea Kingston resigns as Black Starlets coach

Laryea Kingston, a former Black Stars player, has announced her resignation as the under-17 coach of Ghana.

This is effective following the U-17 WAFU Zone B competition.

Following Ghana’s 2-1 semifinal loss in the WAFU B competition, which also prevented them from making it to the Africa Cup of Nations the following year, the former Ghana international made an announcement on Saturday.

Kingston announced his departure with emotion and conveyed his disappointment in a post-match press conference.

He highlighted his commitment to the nation as a coach and player.

During the team’s U-16 competition journey to Russia, Kingston disclosed that he made the decision to step down.

I have put my all into the last six or seven months. As a technical person, I’ve done my share,” he remarked.

“I made my decision on whether or not we would win the tournament after we got back from Russia. I’m going to move on. In this instance, I will be leaving my position as the U-17 coach following the competition.

“The explanation will be revealed later, but I already made that decision before the tournament began,” he continued.

After taking over as assistant coach in April, Kingston led the squad over a run of play that featured some of the best youth football in Ghana, with 54 goals in 18 games.

The Black Starlets will still contend for third place in the competition despite being eliminated.
