Gamtel to face GAF in Domestic league traditional curtain raiser

Thursday, December 13, 2018

Defending league champions Gamtel will clash with FF cup champions Gambia Armed Forces (GAF) in the country’s domestic league traditional curtain raiser tomorrow Friday at the Independence Stadium at 8pm.

The telecommunication giants and soldier boys were both eliminated from the CAF champions league and Confederations cup after losing to Algerian and Ivorian sides ASC Constantine and FC San Pedro 1-0 and 2-1 in their return-leg fixtures in Banjul last week.  This followed their bagging of famous draws in Algiers and Abidjan respectively in the first-leg ties.

Both sides will be keen to thump each other to make their fans happy following their early exit from the continent’s premier and second tier football club competitions.

Gamtel won the league last season after their stunning performance in the league campaign. Gambia Armed Forces lift the FF cup title last season following their 4-3 victory over Brikama United in a final game played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
