Tapha Mannehs Gambian export Bully Drammeh was on the score sheet for champions LISCR FC on Sunday as they drew their first pre-season match against Wusum Stars in Makeni, Sierra Leone.
Drammeh gave the ‘Shipping Boys’ the lead in the 56th minute before the home side leveled in the 82nd minute.
The ‘Shipping Boys’ led by coach Tapha Manneh departed Liberia via the Grand Cape Mount County border on Friday, January 5 for the week-long training camp, and later arrived in the evening hours. According to LISCR’s media officer, T. Kla Wesley, the team is expected to play three friendly matches before returning to Liberia on Friday, January 12.
The Liberian champions will later return to the pitch against Marampa Stars on Tuesday and go into their final encounter against Diamond Stars on Thursday, January 11 at the Koidu Stadium. Twenty-five (25) players were selected by the technical staff for the week-long camp. The week-long training camp is part of the team’s preparedness for the upcoming title defense in the national league and their appearance in the 2018 CAF Champions League.
Meanwhile on a rather sad note, Coach Tapha Manneh received the sad news of the passing of his mother which occurred over the weekend. An outpour of condolences arrived on Facebook for the coach from both Gambia and Liberia.
