The Deputy Managing Director of Social Security and Housing Finance Co-operation, Edward Graham, yesterday presented a cheque of D800, 000 as part of his institution's contribution to facilitate the U-17 participation in the African Cadet Championship in Algeria.

The cheque, which was presented at the launch of The Gambia Football Association operation Algeria Marketing Committee, is part of the committee's drive to raise funds for a successful training camp for the U-17 team in Egypt. It will also allow the team to attend the finals of the African championship slated to run from March 19th to April 3rd 2009 in Algeria.

According Mr. Graham, while handing over the cheque to the committee, the move is part of an investment and its yield will return to the nation as a whole.

He said the U-17 team needs any kind of support in order to keep them motivated.
