Bargie who is also the Gambia Armed Forces (GAF) volleyball men’s team coach will lead the team under “non-contract basis” during the Zone II volleyball qualifiers for the 2019 African Games, which will be hosted in Banjul next month.

Bargie’s task, according to the technical director of the GVBF, Alagie Ceesay, is to secure qualification to the 12th edition of the African Games, which will be hosted in the Kingdom of Morocco, in August this year.
