Lamin Kanteh, 2nd vice president of the GHA told The Standard that plans to stage the league was delayed because most of the players are also athletes who are busy preparing for the Independence Day and Inter- schools athletics competitions.

Asked to comment on the future of Gambian Handball after the reunification of the family, Kanteh said:  ”we came to realise that the continuous suspension of members of the Handball family will not help unify and develop the game that’s why we lifted them. But now there is a lot of discipline and we hope that bad behaviours will not be repeated”.

The GHA suspended a number of officials and national team players a few months ago on their return from representing The Gambia at a ZONE 11 championship in Mali.  The GHA said at the time that because of a reported misconduct and bad behaviour of members of the Gambian team and officials there, which impacted negatively on the country’s image, it had to take action against them. 

Meanwhile the GHA over the weekend presided over the finals of an Inter- schools championship which featured Bottrop, Mahaad and the Gambia College. The finals in both girls and boys categories were played at the college between Bottrop and Mahaad. Read results and story tomorrow.
