BJ’s Academy FC on 2 September 2013 drew goalless with Hannover FC in the group G encounter of the ongoing Serrekunda East Sports Development Organisation (SESDO) Nawetan competition played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium.

Kawsu Jammeh, head coach of BJ’s Academy, speaking to reporters shortly after the game, said the game was well-contested but added that they would work harder, in addition to what they have learnt from the game against Hannover, to do better in their subsequent matches.

Their aim this season is to lift a trophy, he said, adding that they could do it because they have the players it takes to do so.

People will see improvement in the upcoming games, he said, calling on fans of the club to come out in their numbers to support the team.

Modou Lamin Jammeh, head coach of Hannover, said the draw was not a bad start for his side since they came from the qualifiers. Their main priority, he emphasised, is to maintain the team in the nawetan proper.

Their strikers did not take their chances during the game, which resulted in the draw, he noted, saying scoring goals is a general problem for Gambian strikers.

Luck was not on their side against BJ’s Academy, he also said. They would however work harder for the remaining group games.

He called on the fans to always rally behind the club, commending them for having faith in the players that they would not be relegated this season after spending seven years on the drop.
