Gamtel don’t only have the title to brag of but the league golden boot
winner as well.
Forward Yaya Ndong didn’t only prove a squad invaluable this season but the master planner delivering joy in the shape of the league gongapparently by way of repaying gaffer Tapha Manneh’s fate in him.
His improbable effort nestled to the back of net bringing to an end
Gamtel’s long wait for the domestic silverware and coincidentally his
first major trophy since the start of divisional football.
Taking advantage of Samger’s demotion to the second tier Manneh didn’t
hesitate to raid the Academy side for their hit-man.
By first look of his diminutive frame one wonders how he‘ll cope against robust towering opposition defenders, who, by traditional, are preferred in defense.
But Ndong is unfazed and has umpteen times proven this year, judging
him on such grounds could be a dangerous conclusion.
While Ndong can wine for all he wants for his feat this term however
his goal tally of ten in the league represents a slight drop as he
finished two goals shy of matching Bubacarr Trawally’s last season 12
goals – the former Real de Banjul ace now trading his service in
Yaya is closely followed by Bombada’s sensation Mustapha Njie who has
nine goals. Armed Forces have the third highest goal-poacher in
rejuvenated Emil Sambou on eight ahead of Real de Banjul’s Famara
Jarju who boasts of six.
