After what he described as a successful first round in the GFA division one league championship, the head coach of Steve Biko, Abdoulie Bojang, revealed that Biko will train very hard, and promised that we will see a stronger Biko side when the second round resumes in a fortnight's time.

"There is a lot of work that we need to do and we will be very much prepared for the challenges that lie ahead of us in the second round," said  coach Abdoulie Bojang in an interview with Pointsport shortly after the academy boys Samger held them to a goalless draw at Manjai on Monday. He revealed that the team's struggle recently is due to the absence of some of his key players like midfielder Mustapha Sarr, Abdou Sallah, Kawsu Jatta, Alagie Bah and Alpha Omar Jallow who were benched due to injuries.

According to coach Bojang the team will soon welcome 7 key players from the CAF U17 championship in Algeria to boost their chance of silverware this season.

Biko finished fifth in the first round and are hoping to bounce back to their shape in the second round, and have bagged 15 points in eleven games.                  

It will be recalled that Abdoulie Bojang was a former national mid-fielder who won an impressive collection of trophies during his time as a Biko player. He was appointed to take charge of Steve Biko in 2004/2005.
