Speaking to Pointsport shortly after the match, Musa Mendy thanked Brikama Youths and Sport Association (BYSA) for allowing the schools to use their Mini Stadium.
According to Mendy, this is the second time he and his British friend had organised such a tournament, adding that they sponsored the first one in Region One of KMC last year.
He promised that they would continue their sponsorship to other Regions in future.
