The Sport Journalist Association of The Gambia and the Senegalese Sports Journalist Association will engage in a partnership geared towards  cementing the relationship between the two sides.

This initiative came about following the arrival of a Senegalese sports journalist delegation who attended The Gambia and Senegal match last weekend.

According to Mamodou Diouf, President of the Senegalese journalist Association, as part of facilitating the formation of the twining programme, his committee will come to Banjul on the 26th of July to work on the modalities of the twining.

Diouf seized the opportunity to inform SJAG members, at a meeting held between the two bodies, that every year the Association National de la Press Sportive du Senegal benefit from an amount of two million CFA (close to D100,000) from their national Olympic committee as part of their contribution towards developing sports in Senegal.

"We also have a permanent sponsorship from our national GSM operator Orange, who also assist in funding our activities," he explained.

The Senegalese Journalist association will also be heading for congress on July 28th 2008 in Dakar.

The twining programme if formed will set the plate form for both parties to exchange experiences and learn more lessons for the advancement of the two associations.
