A renowned sports administrator, Mr. George Gomez has informed the press that he has authored a handbook he called ‘The Milestones of Gambian Football’. The handbook according to the former Executive Director is not the history of Gambian football, but rather a collection of events that happened in the past. He also noted that the book will help to promote and support the game in the country.
Though George stated that his book is not the history of Gambian football, he also pointed out that the book talks about how football started in The Gambia, where was it played, who and how it was played when league football started in the country; when the first international match was played; and, how many teams played in the national league since it started in the early 1940s, and many more. The book also addresses the achievements and lessons to learn from our international pursuits with the U17, U20 and the recent U17 women’s team. Click to read more
