Kinteh's United's hope of recovering from their embarrassing performance in last year's GFA National Women Division One League Championship has suffered a massive setback as they conceded the heaviest defeat against Interior, who entertained them to a humiliating 8-nil defeat at Real De Banjul field on Saturday.

The side led a hard fought encounter, but were eventually led down by some poor defensive displays, which saw them conceded 8 goals to confirm their three (3) games beaten run in the championship.

The Bakau outfit under the captaincy of the women national team forward Hella Diko began the campaign with a hapless 2-nil defeat to the newly promoted team Armed Forces, which was followed by another disappointing 4-nil lost to Abuko United.

They are without a point in three league matches and conceded 14 goals in the process.

The team Captain Hella Diko, who has little confidence in the players attributed Kinteh's embarrassing start to the league to the lack of good players.

She was however quick to admit that they needed to improve on their performance in a bid to avoid relegation to the Second Division.

Kinteh's United it could be recalled had a poor performance in last year's women league, but managed to escape relegation following some improvement in the latter stage of the championship, which saw Makasutu demoted to the second tier women football at the expense of Bakau girls.
