Wednesday, April 11, 2018

FC Bax and Mighty Ajax FC are both eyeing the pending Green Vision International Real Estate Company Limited and Golden Leads Fish Processing Company Limited sponsored Gunjur league crown after their stunning performance in the wet season biggest football jamboree in the Kombo South coastal town.

Both sides will contest in the league final Saturday at the Gunjur Nyamina Football Field at 4.30pm. The much-awaited final will attract spectators from Gunjur and its satellite areas for the town’s summer biggest football carnival final.

FC Bax beat The Pub 1-0 in the semifinal to progress to the final for the first time since 2009 when they lost to Oxford United FC on penalties after a goalless draw in the regular time in the final played at Gunjur Upper and Senior Secondary School Football Field.

The Red boys will grapple to beat Mighty Ajax to clinch their first-ever league title after losing to Oxford United in the league final on penalties in the 2009 season.

Mighty Ajax sailed to the Gunjur league final for the first time following their penalty shootout win over Blaness FC after a goalless draw in regular time in the semifinal. The Amsterdam boys will aspire to defeat FC Bax to claim their first-ever league title since making their debut in Gunjur’s summer biggest football festivity.

The league final was initially billed for last Saturday but Gunjur Sports Committee postponed it due to some eventualities beyond their control.
