GFA’s First Division: Interior, Africell Relegated

The security boys, Interior and cellular giants, Africell FC have to play their prices by going to the second division after a poor performance in the Gambia Football Association’s 2010 - 2011 first division league campaign.
The two sides faced each other in an unfavorable game for both of them, which was the final fixture of the league at the Serrekunda West football pitch where Africell lost 2-1 to Interior, paving their way off the first division league.
Even though they won their relegated opponent, Interior FC had to fight for their way back to the Gambia’s top football flight next season.
The final day of the season seemed not so difficult and the relegation of the two teams pose a threat to Steve Biko as they were only looking for a point and they survived it after playing a goalless draw against Samger at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai to save their position.

The telecom boys, Africell were promoted to the first division last season together with Young Africans but they (Africell) had to go back to the second division football after a poor 2011-2012 campaign.
Abdulie Bojang and his Steve Biko were the most excited team on Sunday as they avoided relegating to the second division football. They played goalless against Samger in Manjai Kunda.
In other games, the first ever new champions of the GFA league one, Brikama United lost 2-0 to Gamtel  at the Serrekunda East football field and goals were scored by Modou Sarr and Assan Ceesay and the leading goal scorer in the competition was Assan Ceesay of Gamtel with nine goals followed by Foday Trawally with eight goals.
