Larry Sumaila, a defender and Abdul Aziz Nurudeen, a midfielder, all played crucial roles in Hearts of Oak's Ghana Premier League triumph in the just ended season.

Sumaila has been consistent since joining the Phobians, having provided stern competition for captain Fatawu Mohammed in the team.

At one point, Sumaila started ahead of the captain but lost his place following the arrival of coach Samuel Boadu.

Meanwhile, Abdul Aziz Nurudeen's season was largely affected by injuries, although he started the campaign very well and was key to Kosta Papic's team during the Serb's time with the club.

Both players grew up in Madina with Larry Sumaila famously known for his time with juvenile side, Top Ten in Madina Zongo while Nurudeen played for Vision FC, a club founded in Madina Estate.

The Madina MP, Francis-Xavier Sosu, encouraged the players to continue working hard and lift the constituency's flag high across the country.
