Bai Malleh Wadda: Real de Banjul at 50

                                                                                                                                                      26th October 2016

Bai Malleh WaddaFrom the beginning I was there. I started following Real de Banjul at the age of nine. I was the official water boy for the club. I was training with the team every day at ABC tower behind the Christian cemetery.

I will run with the team to mile four and back. As I grew stronger, I started to join in small sided games. Mam Sait Njie (Hank), the team manager encouraged me at the time to keep working hard. Kebba Diaz, who was a reserve at the time encouraged me more and would hold my hand when I slacked behind to keep going during the footing. Real trained very hard at the time!After training, I will take some of the players to my house for some gas food (leftover lunch). Mammy Ndure (Njie) next door would also pass some leftover lunch and I would serve the players cold water from the two drums of water I kept in our fridge for the team. Real had a Serigne (Jujuman) living at Mammy’s compound and his name was Pa Tangana.
