Niarry Tally finished second best the previous term controversially losing the league on goal difference despite topping the table for much of the league campaign.
And determined to rectify their last season blushes the club has returned to Gambia to get their preparation off to a reeling start.
The avenue of staging their tour in Gambia, will offer Niarry Tally’s technical bench chance to scout along Gambian players to beef up their budding squad. Such was the manner Gambia national team goalkeeper Alagie Modou Jobe was tapped from Real de Banjul.
Jobe stood between the sticks for a SK East selection against the Senegalese outfit and by end of the friendly, courted the eyes of Niarry Tally’s gaffer who wasted little time to raid Real de Banjul for the net-minder.
Talks followed before Real gave Jobe the go-ahead who signed a three-year loan deal. The Senegalese side were again at it, holding a test match with Brikama’s Zonal selection as pictured above. The team fired blanks at the boxbar mini-stadium in Brikama.
