Brufut brawl with Waa Banjul in 2nd division league season opener today

Thursday, November 09, 2017

Brufut United are set to rub shoulders with Waa Banjul in the 2017-2018 Gambia Football Federation second division league season opening game today, Thursday 9 November 2017, at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

Brufut United and Waa Banjul both finished mid-table in the second tier last season, and will vie to stun each other to clinch the vital three points.

Elsewhere, the newly-promoted side Latrikunda United will clash with Red Hawks in the other opening fixtures at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium on the same day.

Latrikunda United gained promotion to the second tier after winning the Kanifing Municipality third division league title last season.

The Latrikunda Germany-based club will strive to defeat Red Hawks to bag the vital three points, after their return to the second tier for the first time since 2012, after their relegation to the third division.

Red Hawks missed the chance to gain promotion to the first division last season, after finishing behind second division league champions Banjul United and play-off winners Fortune FC.

The Red boys will need to spank Latrikunda United to claim the maximum points.
