Blackpool FC on Monday draw 0-0 with Ngoyan FC in a well-fought encounter of the ongoing Serrekunda West Sports Organisation (SWESO) Nawetaan game played at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium.

Blackpool FC have now collected four points in two games, while Ngoyan FC have only collected a single point in two encounters.

Earlier on Sunday, Tigers FC draw 1-1 with Cambel Town FC, leaving both sides with four points each in two games.

Speaking to reporters shortly after the game, Modou Badjie, head coach of Blackpool FC, began by thanking the fans and players, saying the game was well-contested.

He said his players showed determination during the game but could not find the back of the net, noting that Ngoyan FC were satisfied collecting a point against them, that is why they were sitting back defending.

He stated that their aim this year is to achieve something because this is their fourth year in the Serrekunda West Nawetaan.

The young coach noted: “It is all about discipline, understanding and respect in coaching players who are older than you.”

Tamsir Boye, head coach of Ngoyan FC, said he was not happy with the result because they came into the game with the concept of collecting the maximum three points. 

He added that they can still make it to the second round because they have three more games to play in the group stages.

“We can do better than this because we are working harder everyday,” he said, adding that their first game of the competition was a different ballgame than that against Blackpool FC.

“I feel bad not collecting the maximum three points yet,” he said, adding that they will be coming all out for the three points in their next game.
