Ahmed S.B. Bojang, a member of Gunjur Sateh Kafoo on behalf of Gunjurians in the Diaspora, on Saturday 7 January 2017 presented D88,000 to Gunjur zonal team after their 2016 FiBank Gambia Limited-sponsored Super Nawettan triumph.

The cash was raised by Gunjurians in the Diaspora following Gunjur zonal team’s 2016 Fibank Gambia Limited-sponsored Super Nawettan success.

Gunjur came from one nil down to beat Banjul 2-1 in a well-attended final game played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau, on 28 October 2016.

Right-back Essa Jallow gave Banjul the lead in the 18th minute of the game from penalty spot after Gunjur’s left-back Yusupha Touray alias Eso brought down pacey winger Assan Gaye.

The 2016 Gunjur Super Nawettan champions’ best player Salifu Bojang alias Bapa levelled the scores for Gunjur in the 36th minute of the game from an astonishing strike to make it 1-1 before striker Malang Jassey alias Uncle snatched the winner in the 77th minute of the game from the penalty spot after winger Lamin Jallow alias Sako was brought down inside the area to inspire Gunjur to their first-ever Super Nawettan triumph.

Presenting the cash to Gunjur Sports Committee at a ceremony held at the Gunjur Nyamina Football Field, Ahmed S.B. Bojang, a member of Gunjur Sateh Kafoo, said the cash was generated by Gunjurians mainly residing in the United Kingdom, the United States of America and other parts of Europe after the team clinched the 2016 FiBank Gambia Limited-sponsored Super Nawettan.

For his part, Lamin Darboe, alias Darboe C, applauded Gunjurians in the diaspora for patronizing Gunjur zonal team after clinching the 2016 FiBank Gambia Limited-sponsored Super Nawettan.
