Aduana Stars

Aduana Stars, formed in 1985 in Dormaa Ahenkro, a small town in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, won the Premier League Title on their first attempt in the 2009/10 season under the guidance of renowned trainer Herbert Addo.   Aduana won the 2009/2010 title in Ghana as fewest scoring side in the league, setting a world record for least productive champions with 19 goals in 30 matches. With an average of 0.6333 goals per match, they broke the all time record set by Trabzonspor. The Turkish side became champions in 1979/1980 with 25 goals in 30 matches (average of 0.8333).

The club draws its support base from the stipulated 150,287 inhabitants in the area.   Aduana Stars enjoyed their first experience in African club competition in January 2011, representing Ghana in the CAF Champions League but was knocked out by former champions Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco.
They lost the first leg 3-0 and nicked a slim 1-0 win at the Agyemang Badu Park in Dormaa Ahenkro in the return leg.   Aduana are strongly backed by the Dormaa- Ahenkro community with the Paramount chief Nana Agyemang Badu II as its Life Patron.

In September 2011, the club appointed their first expatriate coach Cioaba Aristica, a Romanian, after parting ways with Herbert Addo.   Most notable players in the team include former Ghana Under-17 star Bernard Don Bortey, Samuel Asiedu and Godfred Saka.   Aduana are expected to put in a strong challenge to win back the trophy they won two seasons ago after finishing in fifth place last term.
