Jambanjelly Utd clinches 3rd Tier

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Jambanjelly United have clinched the 2017-2018 West Coast Regional third division league title after defeating Tanji United 1-0 in the all-Kombo South derby final played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium on Monday.

The Jam-city missed the chance to reach the final last season after finishing second spot behind group leaders Gunjur United, who are currently plying their trade in the country’s second tier after beating Greater Tomorrow in the final. Striker Malang Jammeh’s dying minute strike was enough to earn Jambanjelly United West Regional third tier title.

The victory also earned Jambanjelly United a place in the 2017-2018 Gambia Football Federation third division triangular qualifiers against teams from Banjul and Kanifing Municipality.

 The winner for the Gambia Football Federation third triangular qualifiers will gain promotion to the second division next season.
