Gambia: CAF Conf'd - Gamtel Gets Senegalese Club

Gamtel FA Cup winners have been pitted with Senegalese club ASC HLM in the Caf Confederation Cup draws.

The Telecommunication giants cross swords with Dakar-based ASC HLM in the first round of the preliminaries -Bakau United's Pa Amadou Gai's former club.

Gamtel also Wafu Cup finalist are seeded against clubs from Senegal for the second time this year.

They shoved away current Senegalese domestic league champions Casa Sport off the road in the first round stages March 2012, but had their raging flames cooled when they lost to Malian Club Real De Bamako.

Coach Tapha Manneh will hope to replicate a similar feat of success to retain the Super Cup title but thriving at international level in the Confederation Cup with his stellar outfit will unarguably top his agenda next year.

Tapha Manneh will have to swiftly find a perfect matchup for striker Assan Ceesay as Ali Sowe's replacement who is close to sealing a dealwith Italian club Chievo.

With the third division qualifiers in high gear, the coach Tapha Manneh is believe to be looking for a fitting bolt to the missing nut to make some acquisitions before the official start of the season.

To believe Tapha Manneh's plan for the league could be dwarfed with defender Dodou Suso also on trial, will be unforgivable pre-empting, but the gaffer faces race against time for recruitment with league edging on.
