Kwabena Appiah has been with the academy since he was 13 years old.
Kwabena always had the intentions of playing at the highest level, always had a great attitude and applied himself in a very professional way. Appiah-Kubi was not always rated by his former coaches, finding himself on the bench and not playing much game time. Academy Technical Director Tony Basha was always confident with Kwabena’s attitude and could see there was something special about Kwabena. He had skill and speed to burn. Appiah-Kubi was a stand out performer in Singapore for the academy.
He was then sent to Central Coast Mariners youth team and lined up with academy team mate Mitchell duke.
