Gunjur United Football Club has given D40,500 to its players and officials after receiving financial aid from The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) through the FIFA Covid-19 relief fund.

The club’s players and officials received their monies last week at a presentation ceremony held at the Gunjur Health Centre.

Meanwhile, Gunjur United were occupying mid-table in the 2019-2020 Second Division League before The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) declared the league campaign null and void following President Adama Barrow’s declaration of twenty-one days of state of public emergency in a bid to curb the covid-19 pandemic in the country.

They gained promotion to the country’s second tier in 2017 after clinching West Coast Regional Third Division League title following their 1-0 victory over Greater Tomorrow in the final, played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.
