Gambia: Serekunda West Set for Double Finals

The Serekunda West Sports Organisation (SWESO) will host two finals this weekend at the Community's playing ground along Kairaba Avenue Highway.

The first final to be played at the weekend is set for today, Friday, when the abandoned game between Blackpool and Kanifing United in the Seaview sponsored Knockout competition will be replayed. It will be followed by the Qcell sponsored league final between Pencha and Latrikunda United on Sunday.

The first meeting between Blackpool and Kanifing failed to produce a winner after 90 minutes of entertaining football and the game has now been rescheduled to take place today. The winner of the match will pocket home D30,000 while the runner-up will take home a consolation prize of D15,000.

In the finals of the league competition that is expected to draw a large crowd from the football crazy Serekunda West and its surrounding villages, Bai Ndongo Drammeh, the public relations officer of the Committee, disclosed that the winner of the coveted trophy will receive a whopping D50,000 while the runner-up will receive 30,000.


In a weekend of finals, the National Inter-Departmental Sports Association (NISA) football final is also set for Sunday between the Gambia Civil Aviation Authority and the Gambia Immigration Department. The match will be played at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda.
