Super Nawettan champions and other participants yesterday laid hands on their match prizes sponsored by FIBank.
The ceremony was held yesterday at the GFF dormitory, Kanifing.
Tournament winners Gunjur and second-placed Banjul received D75,000 and D50,000 respectively while third-placed East scooped D30,000 as gains for their feats in the community-backed championship.
In a final game ending 2-1 to Gunjur courtesy of controversial last-gasp penalty at the Independence Stadium, the South Coast outfit became the first side outside of the Greater Banjul to clinch the gong.
Prize monies were due to be forked by sponsors FiBank immediately in the aftermath of the game, but teams couldn’t lay hands on the sums owing to the cacophony of noise, mainly from delighted supporters, triggering postponement of the impromptu presentation.
Matters about the prizes have since subsided until murmurings about it gained momentum over the weekend prompting clarification from the tournament organizing Committee’s Chairman Ba S. Jabbie.
