The GFF has a new Executive Committee

GambiaThe Gambia Football Federation held its Extraordinary General Assembly on Saturday September 20, 2014 at the Paradise Suites Hotel thus ending a three-month Normalisation process. It could be recalled that FIFA dissolved the previous Executive Committee when CAF banned The Gambia from all competitions for two years for fielding three unqualified players against Liberia in the qualifiers of the CAF U-17 tournament, Senegal 2015.

Alhaji Sillah (Coach) that took over the day – day administration of Gambian Football and also organised an elective assembly that ushered in a new Executive Committee. Two Candidates Mr. Buba Bai Bojang and Lamin Kaba Bajo vied for the Presidency – the only position voted for since the other candidates for the Vice Presidential and other positions withdrew their candidatures.
