The Gambia’s home-based Scorpions on Sunday beat Djambarr 2-1 in the finals of a four-team tournament organised by Samba Diallo, a FIFA-licenced player agent, to clinch the 2014 international football tournament staged in Mbour, Senegal.

Gamtel prolific striker Assan Ceesay and Real De Banjul talisman Madi Fatty were on target for the Scorpions.

The tournament was part of the country’s efforts to build a formidable team to part take in the 2017 CHAN qualifiers.

It would be recalled that the home-based Scorpions defeated Peti Mbour 1-0 in the previous game played on Friday before beating Djambarr -2-1 to lift the trophy.

The GFF said the event was meant to hone the skills of the home-based players ahead of the forthcoming CHAN tournament, in which The Gambia will take part in the qualifying series, as well as other forthcoming invitational tournaments.
