GFF LEAGUE: REAL MOVES CLOSER TO TITLE (Biko stares relegation in face Verdict on Box Bar clashes pending )


Their closes rival Gamtel is at 33 points but was in action against Samger last night. Should Gamtel loses, Real will march to the crown with two games to spare. Even if Gamtel wins, Real could still lift the crown by this week Thursday if they could beat Wallidan in the Week 21 fixtures.

Meanwhile the expected meeting of the GFF organising committee could not go ahead last week as planned, meaning that matters arising from the league in the week concerned were not discussed. This includes but not limited to the Steve Biko versus Brikama United match which was abandoned with Brikama leading by a goal to nil. The scores when upheld would mean Biko who subsequently drew their Week 20 fixtures 2-2 against Wallidan, must win both of their remaining matches against Armed Forces and Hawks to escape relegation. 

Yesterday the GFF second vice president Kebba Touray told The Standard that the organising committee could not meet as planned because some of its members also serve as match commissioners and they were busy commissioning other matches. “The meeting is routinely held every week to look at matters that come up in the league each week to ensure that they transparently dealt with,” he said, adding that the match in question and all other matters from the previous week will  be looked into in the coming meeting expected later this week. 


In another result in Week 20, Interior beat Brikama United1-0. As we went to press yesterday other Week 20 fixtures, Gamtel versus Samger, Armed Forces versus Banjul United and GPA versus Bakau United were in progress.
