March 2007


On Saturday 3rd March a batch of players from the Brufut Academy stormed the Independence Stadium to support their inspirational player Ebrima Jatta (pictured below) now with Hawks in the Confederation of Africa Football Cup Winners second round against Dulphins of Port Harcott in Nigeria.

Ebrima has been a player of the academy until late when he joined Hawks. Since joining Hawks, Ebrima has been the inspirational player that everyone in the academy looks up to.

Ebrima who was instrumental in the game again helped his team in the national league Super Cup tie on Friday 9th but went on to lose in the hands of the defending league champions Gambia Port Authority.  He is expected to travel with the team to Nigeria for the return leg of the CAF Cup Winners Cup.
