The Head Coach of second division giants Brikama United, Lamin Kah Bojang,has expressed optimism that his team will gain promotion to the GFA First Division League this year.

He made these remarks while speaking to Pointsports at the teams training ground at Mahaad Senior Secondary School Football Field in Brikama.

He said, " the boys are determine to ensure that we are promoted to the GFA First Division League this time around after failing to qualify last season. We were not lucky and lost the second spot to Samger FC on goal difference with 33 points each. I think it is very important to avoid what happened last year by losing in our final game against Ham Ham. This dashed our hopes on making it. I am aware of this fact and will not encourage it to happen again," he stated.

Brikama United are currently leading the table with 29 points, a single point ahead of fellow contenders Talinding United with two more matches to go.

They will meet third place holders, Nema United in week seventeen matches and struggling Jambanjelly in the final week of the 2008 Second Division matches.
