Captain Salifu Krubally won the Player of the week  award

Real de Banjul skipper Salifu Krubally has been named the club's player of the week following his heroic performance when the 'City Boys' registered their first win of the season against Tallinding United on Sunday.

The no-nonsense defender showed his leadership qualities against Tallinding, winning the aerial duels plus proving a threat in the opponents area.

The Scorpions defender who replaced former keeper Alagie Nyabally as club captain this season thanked his teammates for helping him to win the prize.

"I have to thank my teammates, the coaching staff and everyone at the club for the trust and believe they showed in me over the years". Krubally said.

"This prize serves as extra motivation to me and my teammates to work even harder knowing our efforts would be recognized". Added the captain.

The 12 time Gambian league champions secured a 2-1 win over Tallinding United with goals on either half from Babou Cham and Alassana Jatta whiles Sulayman Manneh's 95 minute strike was only enough for a consolation.

Head coach Majorr Saine who presented the prize to his captain was full of praise for his squad after they returned to winning ways over the weekend.

"After a difficult and successful preseason in Senegal the boys have recovered well against Tallinding after we lost our opener against Marimoo the week before". Said Saine

"Salifu was instrumental in lifting the spirits of the players after the Marimoo game and last week in training thus earning the deserved win against Tallinding on Sunday".

Real will be back in action on Monday 4 December against Steve Biko at the Independence Stadium at 1600 GMT.
