Premier Games sponsored Super Nawettan Championship commences on Saturday with champions SK West to cross daggers with Banjul at the West mini-stadium.
Matches between the two sides are always a cracking episode and Saturday’s promising encounter looks no different.
West won last term’s championship dethroning then holders Brikama at the Independence Stadium.
Victory will do jolly good to West title-maintaining aspirations but with the City Boys being their adversaries, they are tipped to be in for mammoth task.
Preparations for the much coveted exciting talent ridden tournament have been immense. Beset by violence over the past two years, organizers of the event have been mulling stringent measures and already rules have been set aside as a way to curb any trouble reoccurrence including lengthy ban to be imposed on offenders and zone found wanting of misconduct.
