Gambian Football has made a dramatic progress in terms of scouting quite a good number of young starlets both in the country and abroad and among those recently being scouted in Europe includes Simon Barry who in recent times signed contract with the German youth side, and Modou Lamin Jammeh Sarr.

Modou Lamin Jammeh Sarr is rated as one of the hottest prospects in the Denish youth team Brondby, the club he joined at the age of nine.

He moved to Denmark with his brother Abdoulie Sarr to stay with their mother Fatou Jammeh in the Denish town called Brondby when he was nine years of age and managed to secure himself a place in the Brondby youth side where he caught the eyes of the youth team Coach, following a five-year spell with the Denish youth side, the club he joined in 2003.

The 15-year-old Gambian striker who can also play in the left wing later switched to Avert in the Dennish Second Division where he formed a formidable partnership with Denish youngster Danial after spending five years with Brondby youth team, where he struggled to hold down a regular first team place.

This prompted the young striker to make a quick move to Avert under the inspirational leadership of Coach Nick and could now be able to show his new team what he is capable of offering to the club that is keened on securing the service of the highly-rated Gambian born forward.

Modou Lamin Jammeh Sarr who walked into the Point office yesterday alongside his friend Ebrima Jatta, alias Campo, is an integral part of the Avert team and is now given an opportunity to be part of the Avert first team by Coach Nick whom, he said, is a great admirer of the 15-year-old Gambian youngster. Modou Lamin Jammeh Sarr who spoke to this reporter in this interview further expressed his desire to be part of The Gambia’s national U-17 team in the very near future.

The pacy forward who has a chance to sign a contract with the Denish Second Division Avert when he turns 18 in three years time was born in Serekunda and moved to Denmark at the age of nine.
