Gambia: Basse Nawettan Final Rescheduled to Dec 1st

The final match of the 2012 Edition of the Basse Sub-Zone Sports Committee (BSZSC) Nawettan has been rescheduled to Saturday, December 1st at the Basse Mini-Stadium, Observer Sports can confirm.

The game between Etoile De Guinea and the Serahuleh Border Village of Sabi in the competition sponsored by Banjul Breweries, manufacturers of the Youki drink, was called off after the end of regulation time failed to produce a winner, as the two sides played out a pulsating goalless stalemate.

Speaking to this reporter in a telephone interview from his base in Basse, Foday Danjo, chairman of the Basse Sub Zone Sports Committee, said the first final was colourful and was witnessed by prominent people both from Banjul Breweries and the communities. He thanked Youki for sponsoring the tournament, while calling on the general public to come out and watch what he said will be another interesting encounter. He also commended the security in Basse for providing maximum security during the competion, the final in particular.

"Preparations are in high gear both on the side of the Committee and the two teams," Danjo told Observer Sports, while calling on the people to exercise maximum discipline during the game as they did in the first final. "We are going to start selling tickets from Friday because we don't want to see people crowding the gate to purchase tickets into the Mini-Stadium," he concluded.
