Hearts of Oak midfielder Winful Cobbinah has been adjudged the best player of the 2016-17 Ghana FA Cup campaign despite his side’s inability to lift the trophy during an awards ceremony held on Thursday at the M Plaza Hotel in Accra.

The skillful midfielder picked the award ahead of Asante Kotoko striker Sadick Adams and Isaac Amoah of Amidaus Professionals fame following his blistering form.
