Manjai have suffered another setback in the 2016 FiBank-sponsored Super Nawettan zonal football tournament following their 1-0 defeat to the 2015 Super Nawettan Serrekunda West in the group A fixtures played at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda on Tuesday.

Manjai lost to Brikama 1-0 in the opening game before their Kanifing Municipality derby clash with reigning Super Nawettan champions Serrekunda West, who missed their Super Nawettan opener due to fracas between Serrekunda West Sports Organisation and Kanifing Municipality Sports Committee.

Manjai came with an intention to beat Serrekunda West and bounce back in contention for a place in the last eight after losing to Brikama in the opening game at the weekend but lost to Serrekunda West 1-0 in their second group A game.

Serrekunda West, who missed the opening game with Brikama at the weekend, managed to grab the vital three points after netting a single goal to snatch their first win in the country’s community biggest football jamboree.

BEM have maintained their hundred percent record in the 2016 Super Nawettan following their 1-0 win over whipping boys Serrekunda Central at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium.

The North Bank Region boys beat Lamin 1-0 in their opening group A fixtures played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium at the weekend.

Elsewhere, Brikama missed the chance to maintain their hundred percent record in the Super Nawettan following their 1-1 draw with Lamin in the all-West Coast Region derby game played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium the same day.

BEM are leading group A with maximum 6 points in two games after their two opening group games, and Brikama are second with 4 points in two games.

Serrekunda West are third with 3 points in one game with a game in hand against Brikama, and Lamin are fourth with 1 point in two games.

Serrekunda Central and Manjai are respectively occupying second place from bottom and bottom place in group A with zero points each but Manjai have played more matches than Serrekunda Central.
