The Gambia Football Federation yesterday presented sets of Gambia national team jerseys (home and away) to the Gambia Amputee football team heading to the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The second vice president of the GFF Bakary Jammeh did the presentation and encouraged the team to keep its good record in the championship.

The team finished at the quarter finals in the last edition in Tanzania. “Even though the Gambia Amputee Association is not a direct member of the GFF, it will be supported by the Federation in any way possible because they play football and represent the country,” Jammeh said.
