To wrap up a memorable season for the season’s league clubs, Saturday’s FA Cup champions Banjul United got D75,000 while Hawks cashed D50.000.
The presentations were conducted by the Normalisation Committee, NC, and marked a significant break from the past when league and other winners have to wait for years to get their cash prizes. The recently ousted executive of the GFF had however paid prizes won under them promising to pay other prizes in arrears.
Musa Sise the spokesman of the NC yesterday told The Standard that paying title and other winners prizes at the right time is the right thing to do. “These things should be automatic because it should be part of the programme and budget of any serious football federation and we worked hard and are lucky to have sponsor and that’s it. The feeling of waiting indefinitely for your prize is discouraging to the teams, players and club administrators,” he said.]]>
