Barely four days before Brikama United take on Esperance of Tunisia in the 2012 Orange African Champions league, Brikama Youth and Sports Committee (BYSC) yesterday held a press conference at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

The press briefing was part of Brikama Youth and Sports Committee (BYSC) preparations for Brikama United crunch first leg African champions league second round tie against the current African champions Esperance of Tunisia slated for Saturday 24 March 2012, at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

Speaking at the press briefing, the Secretary General of Brikama Youth and Sports Committee (BYSC), Mr Alagie S. Darboe, said the press conference was the first of its kind and it meant to inform people about the Brikama United preparations for their first leg tie against Esperance of Tunisia in the continent’s biggest top tier club competition showdown this weekend.

Mr. Darboe pointed out that BYSC has established substitute committees when they confirmed that the game is going to be played in Brikama.

They are the marketing committee, media committee, food and accommodation committee and fundraising committees.

This, he said, will help them to prepare very well for the weekend game and paid visits to schools in Brikama to sensitise students about the game between Brikama United and Esperance.

Mr. Darboe further pointed out that they are responsible for Esperance during their stay in The Gambia, which will cost them D230, 000 and they need two million for the home and away legs.

He seized the opportunity to call on Gambians to come out and support the team.

According to Mr Darboe, they are planning to organize a fundraising show with Jaliba Kuyateh and Kumareh Band and Fireman to raise more funds for the team’s participation in the CAF African champions’ league.

Mr. Darboe challenges Coach Sulayman Kuyateh and the coaching staff to ensure victory against Esperance of Tunisia.
