Former Hartpury footballer David Accam called into Ghana squad
HARTPURY’S first Champions League footballer, David Accam, has made another huge stride after receiving his debut call-up for the Ghana national squad.
The 22 year-old was one of the surprise inclusions in Kwesia Appiah’s squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifier against Sudan on the 24th of March.
If Accam, who studied for a National Award in Sport and Exercise while at Hartpury, makes his debut for the Black Stars in just over a week’s time, it will cap an amazing period since leaving the college.
Having impressed on loan at Swedish third tier side, Ostersunds, parent club Helsingborgs recalled him for Champions League games against Celtic. He has since gone on to feature in the Europa League as well as helping his side to promotion into the top division.

“It’s amazing” Accam said. “That’s what every boy dreams about – playing for your country.”
“I have played well both in the Champions League qualifiers and in the Europa League and the coach was following the matches.”
“During my time at Hartpury, I learned that if you apply yourself to both studying and football, are prepared to work hard, then your dreams can come true.
“With the highest level of coaching and specialist support available at Hartpury you will have every opportunity to make it as a professional footballer, like I did.”
Abdul Majeed Waris, who already has five international appearances to his name, has also been selected alongside Accam, and the two will be vying for a starting position up front.
Waris, now of Spartak Moscow, scored 36 goals in 21 appearances during his time at Hartpury before signing for Swedish side BK Haken, where he enjoyed another phenomenal scoring record.
