GFF title to be decided on final league day


By Sulayman Bah Gambia Football Federation’s one million worth league title winner GFF title to be decided would not be decided until the final day of the league after Gamtel lost to Banjul United. Victory would have placed Gamtel on path to clinching the title after Real de Banjul lost 2-1 to Gambia Ports Authority earlier on Tuesday. But Tapha Manneh’s charges blew away the chance presented to top the standings succumbing 1-0 to Banjul United yesterday evening. The telecom giants and defending champions Real are leveled on points each on forty-one with the latter leading on goal difference, meaning the winner of the league will only be known on final match of the league. Elsewhere, Bakau United have gotten relegated after they drew blank with Serrekunda United yesterday. A win would have seen the Bakau-based side’s chances of survival bolstered and given them the moment to do the incredible on final league game day –to stay up in the division. But the stalemate means they will be playing football in the second tier next season. Interior, in another game, humbled Brikama United 1-0 while Hawks drew one-all with Walidan. Gambia Armed Forces managed to overcome Bombada 1-0.]]>
