The Gambia Armed Forces female team in the country's women's top flight league on Friday thumped Company Ten 4-nil to maintain their perfect start to the Women National League following promotion to the First Division last season.

The hero of the day was Sereh Ceesay, who scored four times to help her side climb at the top of the league table with 12 points, as the second round got underway at the Real De Banjul Football Field on Friday.

Company Ten, who came into the game with 9 players occasionally went close to scoring, but all their brilliant attacking options could not earn them a happy moment and in the process failed to break the deadlock.

Coach Ebrima Kagbo and his team who only managed to win one game in the league attributed his side's poor run in the league to the fact that most of the parents of the players did not allow their daughters to take part in the league due to the distance from their house to the stadium.

He was however hopeful that Company Ten will recover from their poor start to the league, as he looked set to rebuild the team to a better standard.

The win is Armed Forces' fourth in the league, collecting 12 points and if they can maintain this current good form, they could be real title contenders in the race for the coveted crown.

The 32-year-old Coach Sheikh Tijan Seck, who was appointed to take charge of the soldier girls 4 months ago remain confident of guiding the team to the league title.
