Debutants 2nd Infantry Battalion whips SK East Bi in 2nd Division

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Second tier debutants Second Infantry Battalion Friday beat Serrekunda East Bi 1-0 in the 2018-2019 Gambia Football Federation (GFF) second division league match played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium.

The Farafenni barrack soldiers secured promotion to the country’s second tier after clinching North Bank Region third division league title last season. Serrekunda East Bi missed top flight league promotion berth last season after finishing fifth place behind PSV Wellingara, who secured final first division promotion slot.

The East Bi boys were eyeing for the maximum points in the game but surrounded the vital three points to the Second Infantry Battalion, who netted a single goal to land their first-ever victory in their debut season in the country’s second tier.

Newly-promoted side Jambanjelly United hammered Red Hawks 4-1 at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium on Friday to grasp their first success in the second tier.
