Following the completion of their qualifiers across their various GFF recognized zones for the 2015 nawettan football fiesta, Serrekunda West, East, and Manjai are set to play their Super Cup finals this weekend.

Serrekunda West Sport Development Organisation (SWESDO) will play its Super Cup final today (Friday) at the Serrekunda West mini-stadium between 2014 League winners Kanifing United and Knockout winners Kaw Tally of Dippa Kunda.

In Manjai, league winner Johannese FC of Kololi will take on knockout winners Marimoo FC of Manjai tomorrow (Saturday) at the Father Gough Sports Complex Manjai Kunda.

In Serrekunda East, league winners Blue Stars of Abuko will rub shoulders with knockout winners Juventus of Tallinding on Sunday at the East Park.

Meanwhile, speaking in an interview ahead of the final, Bai Ndongo Drammeh, public relations officer (PRO) of SWESDO, said preparations are in high gear, assuring that all is set for the final showpiece at West Park.

“The kickoff time for the final is at 4.30pm and the tickets at the gates are D15 and D10. We are expecting officials, the Minister for Youth and Sports, Alieu K Jammeh; Minister for Health, Omar Sey, football stakeholders, and representatives of recognized GFF Zones,” h said.

QCell contract renewed

PRO Drammeh also used the interview to disclose that QCell has renewed its contract with SWESDO for another three years for the branding of the football Park, from D75,000 to D90,000 per year.

QCell, he added, would also continue to sponsor the league trophy to the tune of D75,000 with a giant trophy.“What is nicer about this is that now the winner of the league will keep the trophy,” he said.


Speaking further to this reporter, Bai Ndongo said there had been major works at the West Park, noting that a new perimeter fence had been mounted with the ground also being improved upon to ensure a successful nawettan.

He concluded by urging the fans, players and coaches to maintain maximum discipline and peace before, during and after the final, as well as during the nawettan proper.

He described Kanifing United and Kaw Tally as among those most discipline teams during last year’s nawettan, something he attributed to their triumphs last year
