Real De Banjul midfielder Alagie Bah, who left Banjul for a two-week trial with Yegoo FC in Dakar, yesterday returned home untested, the player told Pointsport on Sunday.

Gikata, as he is widely known, earlier this week told this reporter that his Banjul club Real De Banjul and Yegoo FC, a second division team in Senegal, had come to agreement about a possible two-week trial in Dakar.

But the 16-year-old combative midfielder said he was surprised to return home without the trial due to the absence of the Norwegian agents who were to conduct the test.

"I was in Yegoo FC for a trial thanks to the support of Real De Banjul but to my surprise when I arrived in Dakar I was made to understand that the four Norwegian agents that were supposed to conduct the trial could not make the trip, which prompted me to return home on Sunday," Bah told our reporter in an interview at his residence in Bakau New town.

Selected by the GFA nationwide selection committee for the U-17 team, Bah began his career with the academy side Gift where he had a successful 3-year stint before making a sensational switch to Ham Ham as a promising offensive-minded midfield meastro.

This was followed by another positive move when the Bakau born player sealed a deal with the Real De Banjul in the early stages of the 2009 season.
