After guiding Armed Forces FC to their second GFA league title in six years, the head coach of the khaki boys Alagie Sey said he was very delighted by his team's successful achievement. The elated coach was however quick to reveal that discipline, hard work and commitment were the keys to their success, emphasising the fact that without these Armed Forces could not have had what they achieved.
"I am very much delighted to guide Armed Forces to this great achievement after 4 months of intense training," the cheerful head coach told Pointsport shortly after Biko held the newly crowned champions to a goalless draw at the Serrekunda East Mini-Stadium last Thursday. The draw took them to 44 points for the season and confirmed their place as the best team of the season. Coach Sey went further to thank the management and the staff of Armed Forces FC for what he described as their tireless efforts towards the success of the team, and vowed to continue to train very hard since they face another challenge in the FA cup championship.
Meanwhile, head coach of Steve Biko, Abdoulie Bojang, who guided the Bakau giants to their most impressive league performance in more than 5 years, commended his players for putting up a respectable performance despite failing to lift the title, citing that they deserved the second place finish.
The 2001 FA cup winners had a difficult start to the season due to their poor scoring record but performed better in the latter stage of the championship, coming from behind to secure their second place position.
They finished behind Armed Forces FC with 33 points.
