Matches in the 10-team Late Abdoulie Njie Memorial Football Tournament continued to produce some fantastic games and revelation since its commencement on August 17th at the Serrekunda Lower Basic School.
The fitness tournament which is sponsored by Omar Koroma, former Portsmouth striker in the English Premier League is meant to avail the players with the unique opportunity to come together in a bid to foster the relations among them.
Day One of the competition saw Canon beat Cambel Town with a 2-nil score line which was followed by another bitterly fought encounter when Rangers defeated Nguma FC 2-1 to record a perfect start to the campaign.
Day Three of the competition also witnessed another mouth-watering match when SV Laar entertained Leeds United to a hard fought goalless draw before a capacity crowd at the Serrekunda Lower Basic School.
Culture also recorded a convincing start to the championship, as they edged past Safira 1 - a few days ago.
Pencha BI FC is another team that is enduring a poor start to the campaign after they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Canon, who became the only team to win in two consecutive fixtures as of press time yesterday.
Rangers, who beat Nguma 2-1 as part of the opening fixtures a week ago, succumbed to a 1-0 defeat in the hands of Jokor FC who won their first game to record a convincing start to the championship.
The tournament Pointsport understands is named after Abdoulie Njie, a former Nguma player who passed away last June, while playing for Nguma in their friendly game against Real De Banjul at the Sea View playing ground two times after scoring his side’s only goal of the game in a 1-0 win.
Mustapha Drammeh, the Programme Officer of Serrekunda East Sports Development Organisation organised the tournament.
