And it was also sweet revenge over the region that sent them packing in the recent Nayconf football championship in Soma.

CRR announced their intentions as a power house back in December when they reached the semis in a rigorous inter -regional tourney at the Nayconf. 

Last night hundreds of fans joined coach Pa Momodou Ngum to celebrate a sweet victory that ushered them into the history of The Gambia as the champions of the country’s 50th Independence anniversary tourney. Watched by Sports  Minister  Alieu Jammeh and colleagues Sheriff Bojang among others, the match produced thrilling moments but both sides fell short of finding the net in regulation time.  CRR won the ensuing penalties 4-3 to spark jubilations in faraway Georgetown, the regional capital, which is bracing up for elections in a short while.
