Feb 27, 2015, 10:51 AM

Jallow and Njie are both currently in the island country in preparation for the Dynamo’s league campaign which kicks off this Friday.

Modou Jallow, fondly called Figo, is a 19-year-old fast and explosive young talented forward with vast experience after representing the country in various national team categories, including the U19, U20 and the senior national team respectively.

The former Brikama United forward, who joined Real de Banjul in 2012, has three league titles to his name after winning it in 2010/2011 (Brikama United), 2012/2013 and 2014/2015 with Real de Banjul.

“I am happy with this opportunity to come here and play for Northern Dynamo FC. It’s a good team and we feel very welcomed. We hope to help the club achieve its targeted goals and contribute to the team’s success,” the former Sport Journalists Association of Gambia Best Player of the Year award winner told www.realdebanjul.gm from his base in Mahé island.

Musa Njie, 19, meanwhile is a tall, physical and energetic forward who has won the Division One league with Real de Banjul last season.

Njie, who briefly joined Senegalese club Yegoo on loan in 2013 said: “We are here to do well for the club and we would do our level best to help them reach their goals as a team.”

The Manager of Northern Dynamo, Clive Delorie, was full of praise for the Real de Banjul duo and expressed delight after their loan move.

“We are happy they have joined us for a year. We have seen that they’re very brilliant and technical players and our coach likes them. I hope they will be able to do well with us and also hope to establish a long and lasting relationship with Real de Banjul,” Delorie said.

President remarked: “It’s always good when we give our players the chance to express themselves elsewhere to become professionals, and I am delighted we have given them both the chance to travel to Seychelles.”

“Because even though they are an island country, they have a professional league sponsored by Barclays Bank and do have scouts from all over, so we thought to give them the chance to expose themselves by doing well there,” the president added.

Northern Dynamo finished in sixth position last season in the Seychelles First Division League. They play their home matches at the 10,000 capacity Stade Linité stadium in Victoria.

Everyone at Real de Banjul would like to wish Modou and Musa all the best of luck during their time at Northern Dynamo FC.
