A date for the Annual General Meeting has been finalised with all set for this weekend, Foroyaa Sport can report.Gambia Wrestling Association

This latest trajectory followed a meeting amongst the association’s executives yesterday. The event was first billed for Saturday but announcement of a set-setal forced a reconsideration of holding the annual session.

However, it has been agreed that the event will go as planned but it will not start until 2:00pm at the Friendship Hostel.

Picking a day for the schedule has been a major bone of contention for the last months until stakeholders in the arena lodged a formal complaint to the National Sports Council.

The petition, signed by a dozen players in the arena sought to push the country’s wrestling body to relay to stakeholders its entire activities for scrutiny.

This move came in the wake of brewing tension in the arena. The council listened to arguments of both stakeholders and the GWA before urging for calm and advising the latter to stage an AGM within the first week of September.
