The reigning champions of The Gambia Volleyball Federation national league, Serrekunda East, successfully defended their league and knockout championship following their triumph over close challengers Gamtel/Gamcell in the knockout final last evening at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
Coach Modou Njie’s side conquered the club’s 7th trophy in four years, winning the national league four times in a row and the knockout award in three consecutive seasons.
“This is a great achievement for us as a team. With little support, our players never relent in their fight to make history in the country by writing their names in the history book of volleyball. We will continue the hard work to maintain our dominance in Gambian volleyball competitions,” Modou Njie told The Alkamba Times after his side was crowned knockout champions.
“Winning the trophy is not difficult, but defending it is the most difficult in any competition as your opponents will also come better prepared to rectify their shortcomings in the previous season, and that will always make it difficult, but here we are defending the title for three consecutive seasons. I’m grateful to the players and all supporters of Serrekunda East.
Our next target is to represent The Gambia in the Africa club championship, which will be held in Tunisia next year,” Mr. Njie added.
