The course brought together 18 participants from different sporting disciplines, who were trained on maintaining a simple finance system, including petty cash and journal, budget and budgets preparation, bank reconciliation, statement of assets and liabilities, and balance sheet preparation.
Wilfred Riley, secretary general of the Gambia Cricket Association, said the aim of the course is to equip participants with the knowledge of financial management and proper accounting procedures.
The president of the association, Johnny Gomez, said no matter how big or small an association may be, it is essential to adopt sensible financial policies and processes.
He thanked ICC/ACA Africa for their support.
