Majorr to debut against Marimoo

Real de Banjul squad that clinch the St Louis tourney

Real de Banjul manager Majorr Saine will be making his competitive debut as coach of the club when the City Boys open their league account against Manjai based Marimoo on Saturday 18 November at the Independence Stadium.


The former assistant will head into Saturday's league opener on the back of winning the St Louis invitational tournament last weekend. That triumph was preceded by a solid performance in Ziguinchor in which Real finished fourth.

Marimoo finished above Real last season in second despite collecting just a point in the two meetings one of which Real ran out comfortable winners in Banjul before drawing in Manjai.

Majorr has a new look side following the transfers of Bully Drammeh, Arona Jabang, Adama Sabally, Bubacarr Sonko, Cherno Jobe, Alieu Jallow and last seasons leading scorer Yankuba Jarju. Former captain and goalkeeper Alagie Nyabally is also among the players on the move. 

Abdoulie Bah, Alieu Fadera, Ebrima Jatta and John Gomez are among the new recruits for Real who will look to start the season on high.

Club captain Salifu Krubally is optimistic that the new side can achieve its targets for the season.

"We have a new look side which is made of young and talented players but we're confident that we can achieve our targets for the season". Said Krubally.

The match will be played at the home of Gambian football, the Independence Stadium with kick off scheduled for 16:00 GMT. We will have full match text commentary on our Twitter and Facebook handles.
