He however expressed dissatisfaction with the referee’s rulings.
For his part, Kajali Darboe, a member of the technical committee, said the main aim of the tournament is to select a good town team which will be representing the town in mega football events.
“This can only be done when the players have the criteria, which will be based on talent and discipline,” he said.
He revealed that after the zonal battle, fifty talented players will be selected from which they will be able to get the last twenty-five players for the town.
He urged all the teams to show respect and discipline, “which is the backbone of the game”.
“One could only be selected through his performance and discipline,” Darboe said.
