The finals of the 2012 Edition of the Serekunda West Sports Development Organisation (SWESDO) will be rescheduled to a new date when the committee meets for a decision on the abandoned final this week.
The game between Blackpool and Kanifing United in the competition sponsored by GSM service provider, QCell, was called off after the end of regulation time failed to produce a winner as the two sides played to a pulsating goalless stalemate.
Speaking to Observer Sports, Bai Ndongo Drammeh, the public relations officer of SWESDO, said the committee will meet on the matter on Monday by the time we went to press and a decision will be made for a new date. The day was colourful as it was witnessed by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Alieu Kebba Jammeh, who took the kick-off to a rousing ovation by both sets of players and fans.
Also present were the acting director of Youth and Sports, Pa Suwareh Faye; acting secretary general of the Gambia Football Association, Marcel Mendy; deputy mayor of KMC, Yusupha Sanyang; Senior Development Officer of the National Sports Council, Abdul Aziz Titao Mendy; Scorpions head coach, Roberto Mancini; and a host of MPs and councillors.
The SWESDO PRO added that they will take the opportunity to thank the chairman of the Gambia Referees Committee, Lamin Camara, and the commander of the Police Intervention Unit Kanifing Headquarters and all the dignitaries that graced the occasion or in one way or the other helped in making the final a success.
