Former Karela United forward Diawusie Taylor, Daniel Afriyie Barnie and Ishmael Ganiu will compete for the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Home-based Footballer of the Year Award.

Daniel Afriyie Barnie had a remarkable year at both club and country.

The youngster won the AFCON U-20 title with the Black Satellites as captain, scoring the only goal of the game in the final.

Barnie also helped Hearts of Oak to the treble-winning Ghana Premier League title, FA Cup, and the Super Cup.

The youngster recently earned a call up to the Black Stars for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe in November due to his impressive performance.
