Mighty Ajax clinch Gunjur league title

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Mighty Ajax have emerged champions of the Green Vision International Real Estate Company Limited and Golden Leads Fish Processing Company Limited sponsored Gunjur league following a 1-0 defeat over FC Bax in a well-contested final played at the Gunjur Nyamina Football Field on Saturday.

Both sides made admirable start to the game and crafted few goal scoring opportunities but the first half ended in a goalless.

Upon resumption from the break, both sides picked up where they left in the first half and threatened each other’s goal.

Mighty Ajax opened the score line through midfielder Alieu Sanneh alias Paul Pogba in the ‘eleventh hour’ of the game from a brilliant free kick after capitalising on FC Bax net-minder Saikou Kebbeh’s error to fire home the opener, which eventually proved to be the winner for the Amsterdam boys.

FC Bax responded quickly for an equalizer and created some goal opportunities but couldn’t penetrate Mighty Ajax’s formidable defence line.

As champions, Mighty Ajax walked away with a giant trophy and cash prize of D20, 000 while FC Bax received D15, 000 as the runners up.

The final was graced by the newly-elected Councilor of Gunjur Ward Momodou Charreh Jibba, Sulayman Sambou, president of Gunjur United Football Club, UDP chairwoman for Kombo South Fatou Jatta, Alhagie Omar Njayo Touray, Ba-Ismaila Saidy, Lamin Sarr, Ismaila Sanyang and other important dignitaries.
