By Sulayman Bah Bakau team tactician has taken the ban slammed on him by the SuperSateba Boy Brikama Nawettan  Organising Committee (SOC) in ‘good faith.’ Sainey Sanyang was involved in an altercation after he impulsively raced down to the opposing team’s dug-out in sheer jubilation in his side’s 2-0 thrashing of Brikama.His action provoked furious reactions from the Sateba Boys’ backroom staff. Sanyang later offered an apology over the bizarre incident in post-match media talks but that didn’t deter the SOC from probing the issues triggered following the referee highlight of the altercation in his match dossier. Consequently Sainey incurred the organisers wrath who suspended him from barking instruction from the technical bench and imposed a D1000 fine on The Beach Boys. The punishment means Bakau will be without their coach in their today semi-final fixture against defending champions Serrekunda West. Reacting to the ruling, Sanyang said following his charges quarter-final victory: ‘I was banned and I have accepted it in good faith.” On Bakau’s chances, Sainey was bullish, “I told you (before) the team is gradually improving day in day out, which means we are going to win the trophy.” ]]>
