During the second half of the game, DHQ dominated Jamano FC but despite their efforts they could not find the back of the net thus Jamano FC emerged winning.

As champions, Jamano FC went home with a trophy and a cash amount of D10,000.

Meanwhile, after the match, the laying of the foundation stone of the football field fence was inaugurated by Hon. Sakouba Jarju, National Assembly member for Busumbala Constituency, CEO of Star GSM Lamin Kaba as well as the communities of Lamin and Babylon.

Lamin Kaba, CEO of Star GSM Company said he made a promise to Babylon Sports Committee that whoever scored the first goal during the final will be given a flash screen TV with a satellite as part of his support to sport in the country.

“I will also support the fencing of the football field”, he also said, adding that the fencing of the football field and football development in the country should not be entirely left with The Gambia Football Federation.
