The president of the Gambia Football Federation, Lamin Kaba Bajo has informed members of the GFF that his office is looking forward to formalize the relationship that was built sometime in November between his office and Adventure Kicks.
According to him, the relationship has brought about a lot of positive development in women football and thus must be consolidated.
He made these remarks when he was presenting his report at the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at the Friendship Hotel, Bakau.
Kaba said, the visit of the Glasgow Girls FC to The Gambia is a strong indication of his office resolve to forge international partnership on football related development issues.
He said the visit was a memorable one, “Because it has raised the profile of women football in The Gambia. We are encouraged by the number of male spectators and the interest they showed in women football.”
He however added that, “Plans are underway to formalize this new found relationship with our Scottish friends to ensure the development of a mutual beneficial partnership for the support of women football in the country and football development in general.”
It would be recalled that in November, 2015, Adventure Kicks through the Gambia Football Federation and Gilkock Football Academy, Brufut Branch brought the Glasgow Girls to The Gambia for a week long football tour where the team played four test matches with league clubs and the women national team.
During their stay they also held a football seminar with women league clubs in The Gambia and a coaching clinic with the Brufut based Gilkock Football Academy.
The GFF and Adventure Kicks and partners are planning to make this event an annual event with the hopes of bringing more teams from Europe and vice-visa.
