With a few weeks away from the commencement of yet another GFA Division One League Championship, preparations are underway ahead of the country's top flight football.

One team that is preparing for the much-anticipated league- season is the last year's fourth position holder Bakau United.

The Bakau giants, headed by Kebba Touray have since started preparatory programme in a bid to move one step ahead of the last year's position.

Jospha as he is widely known who was speaking to our reporter in this interview yesterday has vowed to strengthen his squad ahead of the forthcoming GFA League Championship that will kick-off in January.

He was speaking to Pointsport at the team's training ground at the Bakau Upper Basic School yesterday.

"We are having intensive training programmes for another league season and we want to go one step ahead of our last season's performances," Kebba told our reporter.

According to him, they are currently training with a good number of young and talented players and is hopeful that the youngsters would be able to prove themselves in a bid to secure a regular first team place.

The Assistant Coach of Bakau team that is at the centre of controversy following a violence between them and fellow finalist Serrekunda East in the Zonal Cup Competition who guided the club to its most impressive league standings in the club's history, said there is a big question mark as to whether he will be with the service of the team's best player, Pa Amadou Gai who is poised to return to the professional league anytime soon.

The Bakau outfit is also missing two members of their squad in the names of Samba Bah and Seedy Bah.

The duo left the country for America, barely a month ago and they are still looking for a replacement for them in order to bolster the squad but another good news for the Bakau giants is that the team is trying to send few players abroad for a possible trials if everything goes as planned if the words of Jospha are anything to lean on.
