Banjul is eyeing for revenge against Gunjur in the 2019 Africell-sponsored super Nawettan competition after being paired with the South boys in the same group of the country’s potent community biggest football tournament.

The city-boys slipped to Gunjur 2-1 in the 2016 super Nawettan final, played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau. They will get themselves fit enough for revenge after surrendering the country’s annual football fiesta title to Gunjur.

Banjul won super Nawettan eight times and their last appearance in the final was in 2016, were eliminated in the semifinal last year by eventual champions Serrekunda East.

Meanwhile, Gunjur will be hoping to maintain their winning form against Banjul when they clash with the city-boys in the group encounter next month.
