Zurich FC on Wednesday beat Latrikunda United 1-0 to book their place in the quarterfinals stage of the Serrekunda East Sports Development Organisation (SESDO) Nawetan League Competition, thanks to skipper Buba Sama’s 17th minute strike.

Speaking to Alieu Colley, head coach of Zurich FC, shortly after the game, he said he was delighted with the victory and performance of his team.

He noted that his team has been improving since they came back to the Nawetan proper through the play-off. He added that their target is to enter a final this year.

He stated that the addition of a couple of senior players in his team has really motivated his young players, noting that his team has the best senior players in the Nawetan competition, and that he is very proud of them.

Francis Kaba Sylva, head coach of Latrikunda United, said being knocked out of the competition at this stage was not a big deal for his side, because this was their first year, and their target was to maintain themselves in the Nawetan proper, which they have achieved.

He stated that lack of experience resulted in their exit from the Nawetan competition, but that they have created a lot of chances in the second period of the game.

He also noted that their target next year will be to improve on the experience they have gained from the Nawetan this year.

He concluded by thanking the fans, players and staff of his team, noting that he appreciate all that they have done for the team, and urged them to keep the faith and promised them of a better performance next year.

Meanwhile, Maccassa FC on Tuesday came from a goal down to beat United Stars FC 2-1 to secure a place in the quarterfinal stage of the Serrekunda East Sports Development Organisation (SESDO) Nawetan League Competition.
