Receiving the items, Fasalong Colley, team coordinator said the donation came from a native of Somita, in the person of Lamin Badjie fondly called Lang Fulo comprising 20 sets of jerseys distributed among the Schools and teams in Somita.

Mr Colley said the gesture is first of its kind and thumbs-up Badjie for the foresight that will motivate his countrymen abroad to emulate.
