Bombada United finished top spot on the league table, following their astonishing performance in the second tier campaign, after failing to gained promotion to the top flight last season.

Serrekunda United finished runners up behind the league champions Bombada, following their stunning and brilliant performance in the second division league campaign.

Young Africans and Seaview, who were demoted to the second tier following their woeful performance in the premier tier last season, missed the first division promotion berth to Bombada United and Serrekunda United, following their inconsistent performance in the second division league.
