Old Hands handball club beat Armed Forces by 18 points to 16 points in the Gambia Handball Association National Handball League at the Independence Stadium Handball Court in Bakau.
Both sides came into the game with the intention of snatching a victory but it was Old Hands who carried the day after recording a resounding victory over their opponents Armed Forces.

Armed Forces won their opening two games after wins over Lion Heart and Serrekunda East a fortnight ago recording a bright start to the nine-team handball league competition.

Speaking to reporters shortly after the game, Haruna Cham, secretary general of the Gambia Handball Association, said he is really impressed with the way and manner the league is progressing. He also urged the participating teams to maintain discipline for the rest of the campaign.

“The league is very competitive with all the participating teams doing extremely well, which has made it very difficult for anyone to predict the outcome of the final result,” Cham said.
