The Gambia Warriors Handball Club will play host to their Senegalese counterparts Kafrin Handball Club in an international friendly match at the Independence Stadium Handball Courtnext weekend, according to the club's Captain Amie Manneh.

"We are playing host to Kafrin Handball Club who are expected to arrive in Banjul next weekend ahead of Saturday's friendly game," said Manneh, who spent a successful 8 years with the warriors where she remained a key figure.

Amie who was named the Warriors Handball Club captain four years ago, added that the idea of organising the friendly match was set up by Warriors handball club in a bid to engage their Senegalese counterparts, given the fact that such an international match will no doubt go a long way towards establishing a formidable relationship between the two handball clubs.

"The friendly match is part of our efforts to establish a strong relationship with Kafrin Handball Club, because during our visit to Kaolack as part of the handball tournament last month, Kafrin has expressed their desire to establish a strong relationship with Warriors and we cannot wait to welcome such a wonderful initiative," Manneh pointed out.

Warriors' handball clubs under the guidance of Malick Jarra took part in a series of international competitions in the neighbouring country, Senegal over the period and have since made a huge impact locally and abroad with some achievements to be optimistic about, despite all the constraints.

This latest friendly match between the two handball clubs which promises some fantastic handball encounters in both the male and female categories could prove a turning moment in a bid to form a strong relationship between the two power houses.

Manneh who remains loyal to the club that has brought the best out of the talented handball star is however confident that Warriors would be able to produce an impressive result, as they look set to rub shoulders with Kafrin, considering the quality of handball players at their disposal
