Gambian football at the Division One level in recent years has witnessed tremendous progress in all aspects which has put an end to one team dominance as manifested by Young Africans coming from the second tier football to climb on top of big teams and eventually win the FA cup title last year at the expense of the telecommunication boys Gamtel whom they beat 4-2 after a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

Jammeh Bojang, the General Secretary of the Gambia Football Association who spoke to Pointsport in this interview in his office on Tuesday is highly impressed with the significant progress registered by the Gambian football, particularly last season describing it as a success.

"Last year's season was a success but the only problem was the increased in number of unnecessary red and yellow cards which have recorded a total of 509 yellow cards, as well as 49 red cards registered which is not good for our football," Jammeh lamented.

He used the platform to advise the coaches and the players to do everything possible to comport themselves, in a bid to put an end to the increased in the number of cards registered last season.

Nonetheless the General Secretary was quite impressed with their last year's level of commitment, which he described as successful.
