Despite maintaining its position in the country’s topflight league since its formation in 1969, Wallidan have had to be demoted recently after being defeated 1-0 by Young Africans in the Week 21 league fixtures on the ongoing GFA division one contest at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium on Sunday.

Speaking to pointsport, the head coach of Wallidan, Foday Bah, expressed his dissatisfaction after being defeated at the recent game they competed with the Young Africans.

Mr Bah says he believes in his players, but was unfortunate to overcome their opponents to strengthen their feet on their position.

The head coach revealed that other teams have secured their positions in Division one, but were relegated after failing to maintain it, he said, adding that they should have won the game, but could not utilize their chances and therefore got relegated. 

Bah said he was, however, disappointed with their performance in failing to secure the team a victory at the end of the game.

He said the boys played but could not secure themselves the victory.

They will surely work much harder to regain their position through their performance in the lower league, he remarked, saying: “The downfall of a man is not the end of his life.”

This was a game that we played “lose or win”, he explained, saying it however turned out to be a defeat, “but we will work on our mistakes”.
