By Sulayman Bah Gamtel has made a strong claim to be considered genuine titleNew leaders for league contenders this season after topping first part of the First Eco sponsored league championship There isn’t a gong Tapha Manneh and his regiment of troops haven’t won –winning the FA Cup a record four-time.But the league staked prize continues to elude the telecom giants spanning from the day the club attained divisional status. This year, however, despite without a number of the side’s notable players –some bought others loaned -, Gamtel are looking to break such a hoodoo painstakingly now associated with club beginning with topping first part of the league following a 1-0 win over Wallidan. To reach such stride, Manneh and his 2011 Wafu Cup finalists must widen the current one point gap between them and reigning champions Real de Banjul who closely sit second. They have eleven more games to see out when the second part begins. In another fixture Bombada were held to a goalless draw by Brikama United in an all Brikama-based clubs derby. They occupy third in the standings on twenty points, three behind second-placed Real de Banjul (RDB). RDB played their final game, rescheduled due to their Caf Champions League engagement, against Banjul United.  And against capital nemesis United, the champions could merely wriggle out a goalless draw. Finally, joint fourth-placed Gambia Ports Authority rubbed salt to a split wound beating basement table occupants Serrekunda United 1-0. Interior are second from bottom after losing to Bakau United.]]>
