The regional Town of Basse in the eastern end of The Gambia has selected a very formidable side to participate in the 2008 bi-annial Nayconf hosted by Farefenni in the North Bank Region.

Prior to their departure to the tournament proper Pointsports made a visit at the High Level Football field to asses the team's state of preparedness for the forthcoming Nayconf.

At the training ground the boys demonstrated a high sense of determination that portrayed their eagerness to put-up a scintillating performance at the football showpiece in Farafenni.

Some of the key players expected to make waves in the game at the Nayconf are Sana Mendy, a physically strong defender. In midfield, the team can rely on a trio of young, skilful and dynamic players namely; Mam Gorr, Hamidou Bah, alias Giggs, and Mutarr Cham. Another player the team can lean on as their goal scorer is the prolific goal machine Ba Cherno.
