After round 30 of the Sierra Leone Premier League, Bo Rangers are the winners for the season 2022/23 after defeating Wusum Stars Football Club 2-0 on Sunday at the Southern Arena.Their second straight title in the club’s history. A remarkable achievement for the Southern Province outfit with four games to spare.

Abu Komeh netted the first goal in the 72nd minute from the penalty spot before Suffian Kaloko sealed the all-important win in the 78 minutes.

The Elephant Boys are the fifth team in the Sierra Leone Premier League history to win a back-to-back title after Mighty Blackpool in 1978 and 1979, Real Republicans in 1983 and 1984, and Diamond Stars in 2012 and 2013.

Head coach Alhaji Foray was fully aware before entering the crucial encounter a win would guarantee them the coveted championship title and bring immense joy to their loyal supporters. 

With their sights firmly set on victory, the team delivered an impressive performance that left their opponents struggling to keep up.

East End Lions remain the only team to have won the league three in a row -1992, 1993 and 1994.

The title means they have qualified to compete in the next CAF Champions League after making their debut in the last continental club competition.
