West Coast Region-based outfit Brikama United have secured the country’s top-flight league title after being crowned champions for the second time in their history.

While Brikama was slugging it out with the Gambia Armed Forces  at the Independence Stadium, second-placed and title hopefuls Real de Banjul were also at the Box Bar for the race.

In a scintillating affair at the Box-Bar in Brikama, it was Ismaila Ceesay’s free kick near the box that earned Marimoo their lead 11th minutes after the opening.

FUS de Rabat’s new signing, Pa Modou Sohna, created a fine assist giving Mustapha Jallow to equal the scoring 3 mins before the break and just as it was at the end, Ebrima Joof of Marimoo was caught on handball for Abdoulie Bah to convert from the spot kick to hand Real the advantage.

But that result counted little as Brikama took all advantage to win at the Independence Stadium with goals from Adama Manneh and Momodou Bojang enough to hand them their second league title.
