Steve Biko have completed the final promotion berth to the Gambia Football Federation division one league following their 1-0 win over Young Africans in the week-eighteen fixtures played at the Serrekunda West Mini Stadium on Friday.

The Bakau giant killers followed Samger in the top tier after finishing second-place following their slender victory over the Banjul-based outfit to complete the berth to the top flight.

Striker papa Dodou Darboe’s dying-minute strike was enough to send the Bakau giant killers to the top flight following their demotion to the second tier, after their woeful performance in the top flight last season.

The Banjul-based outfit were demoted to the third tier after finishing second place from bottom in the second tier with 15 points in eighteen games.

Samger thrashed Immigration 3-1 at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium to clinch 2014-2015 Gambia Football Federation second division league title.

KGI beat Lamin United 2-1 at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium to remain in the second tier.

Marimoo beat Serrekunda East Bi 1-0 at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunnda, but the Manjai-based outfit missed promotion to the top flight after Steve Biko beat Young Africans 1-0 to finish second spot in the second tier.
