Jarju’s spot-kick lifts Super cup for Mighty Ajax Gunjur

Monday, August 27, 2018

Striker Ansumana Jarju alias Carrasco’s 12th minute strike from the penalty spot was enough to earn Mighty Ajax FC the 2018 Gunjur super cup title.

The Amsterdam boys defeated The Pub FC 1-0 in a well-attended final played at the Gunjur Nyamina Football Field on Saturday. The third vice-president of The Gambia Football Federation, Rtd. General Lang Tombong Tamba and other significant dignitaries witnessed the final.

The Pub beat Mighty Ajax on the same score line in the knockout semifinal last season prior to the town’s annual nawetan season traditional curtain raiser final.

The Pub responded back for an equalizer and crafted some goal scoring opportunities but failed to capitalise on their limited goal scoring opportunities thus the game ended 1-0 in favour of Mighty Ajax FC.

As champions, Mighty Ajax FC walked away with a giant trophy and cash prize of D7, 000 while The Pub FC received D5, 000 as the runners-up.
