Super Nawettan: Battle of Supremacy in Serekunda, Brikama to Entertain BEM and Manjai to welcome Bakau
By Ebrima KB Sonko.
Group stages of the Africell Sponsored Super Nawettan alias Zonals are done and dusted; zones are now going into the business end of the tournament where there will be no margin for an error.
The quarter finals of the Gambia Football Federation (GFF) Africell Sponsored tourney will commence on Saturday, 23rd November with some intriguing encounters.
There will be a battle of supremacy in Manjai mini stadium on Saturday as the defending champions, Serekunda East will lock horns with the other side of Serekunda, West to be precise. Serekunda East is the most successful zone in the super Nawettan but they have to fight for a place in the semi finals of this year’s lucrative tournament against Serekunda West.
This year’s surprised packages, Kombo East will welcome the boys from Sanneh-mentereng, Brufut, for what will be a maiden appearance for either teams in the last four of the Zonals. Both teams never made it beyond the quarter finals but one will surely make it this year. Kombo East had a 100 percent start to the tournament before a late Saikou Gibba penalty against Foni spoiled their perfect start.
Last year’s runners up Brikama, will on Sunday travel to Serekunda East to played against BEM in what is promise to be a mouthwatering and scintillating encounter between the two teams. BEM has what it takes to eliminate the Satayba boys as they have done it before while Brikama are going to a ground where they won their first ever zonal Championship trophy.
High-flying Manjai will clash with Bakau on Sunday at the Serekunda West park. Bakau will like to win to cement their Brazil of the Gambia claims while the boys from Manjai will like to triumph and make a statement of intent.

All matches are scheduled to kick-off at 4:30 pm local time.
