Super Nawettan: JAKU Coach Cries For Help Amid Players Going For Donation
The Jarra and Kiang United (JAKU) players went for donations for camp, lodged at a health centre before their narrow two-one lost to Brikama on Sunday in their opening 2019 Africel sponsored super Nawettan at the Brikama mini Stadium.
Kebba Ceesay, the head coach of the team made this revelation in a sad mood amid no accomodation for the team in the kombo.
“The car is waiting for us, outside. We left Jarra Soma this morning, lodged at Jambajelly health centre before coming for this game. And now, after 90 minutes, we are going back to Jarra because we didn’t have any place to lodge”, Ceesay said in a disappointing tone.
The team representing the whole Lower River Region in the competition is in financial disarray and the players themselves have to go for a donation in order to camp before the game.
Asked what the LRR football Association are doing to help them, ceesay voiced : ” They are doing absolutely nothing. We didn’t see any executive member in our meeting, camp and even the field here. Our own players are going for donations for camp just the represent our region”.
JAKU, as acronym, the LRR side were incorporated in the super Nawettan last year and were praised for their impressive debut performance. However, despite being assisted financially last year, the team now struggles for finance to be within the Kombos were they’ll be playing their matches.
“We really need help” he said ” we are knocking doors but none respond to our cries. Imagine going and coming for our every game here…we will be playing on Friday and we should be here on Thursday. But no help. From Friday, we will play on Sunday so you cannot expect us to go back on Friday and come on Sunday for a game”.
According to coach Kebba Ceesay, they have written to the Mansakonkong Area council for assistance, but in a telephone call with the Chairman of the said council, Landing sanneh, he said he hasn’t received anything of such but will be willing to look into to their plight if it is received.
