Shepherd Stars Football Academy was established in June 2006. It is based out of the Good Shepherd Orphanage in Odupong Ofaakor, Bohye Asaseso.
When the leadership team at the Good Shepherd Orphanage realised that some of the orphans were very talented and when given a push had the potential to use their gifts to benefit society they decided to found the football Academy.
Currently they have a Youth Academy consisting of teams from the under 12’s , to the under 17’s and a ladies team called the Shepherd Ladies.
In 2007, the Management of Shepherd Stars Academy registered their senior side in the Awutu-Senya East third division league and were promoted after the first year into the second division, this despite their lack of facilities and equipment.
It is very interesting to note that there are a lot of youth footballers in the rural areas who are so gifted in sports, especially football who could be nurtured to become as good as, if not better than best players Ghana has ever produced, if not better.
