Julangel of Bakau New Town now called Unique FM is vowed to end their 9 years trophy drought as they are preparing to lock horns with the Smiling Coast that could also be a team to watch when the two sides meet later today.

One of the oldest Nawettan teams in Bakau that failed to find the form which made them one of the fierce-looking teams in Bakau spent nine years in the Nawettan without a trophy, but according to the Head Coach of the team, Saikou Cham, Unique FM will do all it takes to secure their first league title in nine years.

After snatching the super cup title away from their bitter rivals in Friday's final, Linguere will start the defence of their title with the great optimism of retaining the league title they won in last year's summer when they entertain Vidar tomorrow.

The two times super cup champions trio goalkeeper Dawda Jobe, played an influential role in Linguere's win over Ron-Mango a few days ago. Pa Alieu Njie who also saved the team during the penalty shoot-out after coming on as a substitute and right back, Modou Jatta all expressed confidence of Linguere's chance of retaining their title. A win against Vidar could be very vital for the New Town side as they prepared to register another remarkable success in the summer championship.

Saul Samba will also start their campaign with a game against Milan that is expected to make their first appearance in the Nawettan, after a successful qualifier when they would prove formidable as the two sides meet on Thursday at the Bakau Mini Stadium.

Ron-Mango would be looking forward to put their disappointing super cup final lost to Linguere behind them when they entertain Bremen Africell on Friday.

'I don't thing Ron-Mango is a bad side looking at their performance against Linguere in Friday's final.' 'They only need to re-adjust their chemistry in order to stand strong to fight hard in their effort to make an impact in the summer championship. And the contribution of star striker Pa Amadou Daddy Gai could prove vital for Ron-Mango as he is known for being a magnificent goal scorer, if he is at his best.

Sea View will also be involved in a mouth-watering encounter on Saturday when they take on the formidable Luniburg side that earned themselves a place in the Nawettan where they will make their first appearance, following their outstanding performances in the just concluded qualifiers".

We will soon bring you the fixtures of the remaining teams.
