Gamtel will meet Sait Matty as Seaview set Interior date in the semi-finals of the Gambia Football Association FA Cup.

The semis, which will be played at a later date, will give the four semi-finalists ample time to re-group for the task ahead.

Seaview and Interior both made it to the semi-final after winning their quarterfinal ties on Saturday.

Current GFA second division league leaders Seaview have sailed to the semi-final following their hard-fought 1-0 win over fellow contestants Latrikunda United in the quarterfinal game played at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda.

Seaview are currently leading the 2011-2012 Gambia Football Association (GFA) second division league with 25 points in nine games and are also unbeaten both in the second division and the FA Cup this season.

Security boys Interior have also advanced to the semi-final after beating ferry boys Gambia Ports Authority 2-1 in the other quarterfinal game played at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium on the same day.

Gamtel beat Starlight 4-3 on penalties after a goalless game at the independence stadium on Sunday to book a ticket to the semis.

Saitmatty are also this year’s semi-finalists after a 3-1 win over Young Africans in Banjul on the same day.
