Grouping for 2015 super nawettan held

By: Alieu Ceesay

Gambia’s most cherished and much followed community football, the Super Nawettan, or widely known as Zonals, is here again as the tournament will now kick off after the Gambia-Namibia game in October.

The grouping for the Super Nawettan was held last Friday at the GFF House in Kanifing.

Group A, which is the group to watch in this year’s super nawettan has last year’s winners Serrekunda East, BEM, Serrekunda West, Brikama, Banjul, and Sukuta; while Group B, there is SK Central even though they are yet to play their nawettan together with Lamin, Gunjur, Brufut, Bakau, and Manjai. The fixture is expected to be released next week.

The Ba Jabbi-led organising committee is therefore looking forward to another successful and violent-free Super Nawettan even though there was no confirmed sponsor for the competition at the time of going to press.

In another development, the Observer Sports has all gathered that the Super Nawettan Organising Committee has supported Gunjur Sports Committee with D150, 000 to develop their football ground. The money is from the accounts of the Super Nawettan Organising Committee.

The GFF has also handed over D200, 000 to the Bakau Sports Committee to help in the ongoing works at the coastal settlement’s mini-stadium.

The ceremony was attended by executive members of GFF, the Super Nawettan Organising Committee members and beneficiaries.
