U-20 off to Monrovia April 3


The GFF head of competition and second vice-president, Kebba Touray, disclosed that the full list of the delegation to Liberia has been handed over to the Ministry of Youth and Sports, which funds national team competitions, for travel arrangements to be made. He further revealed that MOYS have confirmed yesterday that they have completed arrangements and the team and officials numbering 28 would leave for Monrovia on April 3.

The opening leg of the tie will be played at the Samuel Kenyon Doe Stadium on Sunday 6th April while the return leg is in Banjul on April 19.  

Meanwhile at press time last night, the team was having its litmus test of strength against the local players of the senior national team, the Scorpions. ”In the absence of a friendly international, the GFF decided to make the best of the situation, to play the team against  the supposedly most highly rated team in the country, the local scorpions,” a top club coach told The Standard yesterday.


It is not clear whether any of the five Gambian players invited from overseas leagues would make the trip.  ”We are monitoring, hopefully we shall have news on them before departure”, another official said.
