Presenting the jerseys to Abuko United, Jata Sonko said he felt in love with the Abuko based-club and was pleased to be able to support them. He described the assistance as just a start as he wants to build a relationship that can yield fruits.

He thanked the team’s management and staff for their steadfastness towards their work over the years and as well prayed for the club to become a football power house in The Gambia and beyond.
