Sports Committee is set to hold meeting with Nawettan clubs in Gunjur on Sunday
5 February 2017, at the Gunjur Daycare Centre at 9.30am.
The aim and objective of the meeting is to discuss the 2016 pending Gunjur nawettan season.
It would be recalled that Red Star Family FC will clash with Reliance Financial Services FC in the Knockout final after eliminating FC Bax and Gam Rock FC in the semifinal matches prior to Gunjur’s 2016 Fibank Gambia Limited-sponsored Super Nawettan triumph after their 2-1 win over Banjul in the final game played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau, on Friday 28 October 2016.
The goals have been registered by Salifu Bojang alias Bapa, who was decorated as the best player of the 2016 Fibank Gambia Limited-sponsored Super Nawettan, and striker Malang Jassey alias Uncle. These strikes have been inspired Gunjur to their first-ever Super Nawettan crown since the inception of the tournament in 1992, by Gambia Football Association.
Red Star Family FC beat FC Bax 1-0 in the semifinal to sail to the final, courtesy of centre-back Saikou Barrow’s second half long-range strike.
Elsewhere, Reliance Financial Services FC defeat Gam Rock on the same score line to advance to the final.
Centre-back Fabakary Touray alias Maxi was on target for Reliance Financial Services FC in the second half from penalty spot after Gam Rock FC’s player handled the ball inside the area.
