Sierra Leone Sports: Celebrating community leagues

Christian Dauda, Team Manager of Leone Stars, has said, “The community leagues have played a great role for the past four years to keep the game alive, therefore, we should complement their efforts whenever called upon for assistance.” He added, “That is why I am helping these mini leagues to achieve their aims and objectives. That is why today again I am presenting trophies and 50 medals to the organizers of the Millamac Foundation.” Ahead of their second inter-community football league final between Cockle Bay and Dorcoty communities, slated for 9 December 2018 at the Siaka Stevens Stadium, Deputy Director of Sports Lambert Sesay on behalf of the Sports Minister Ibrahim Nylenkeh, said there were no major hitches throughout the competition. He conveyed thanks and appreciation to all and sundry and further noted the Minister was “impressed with your performance.” Lambert Sesay urged both communities to advise their supporters and fans to be peaceful during and after the match, as they would not want to see a situation where the poor citizens suffer along the streets after the match. “All we want to see is peace, love, and unity; let me also appeal to the match officials to put on their best performance in this final,” he urged. Mohamed McCarthy, one of the organizers revealed both finalists would play for Le10 million with Le6 million for the champion and Le4 million for the runner-up. The Team Managers, of Cockle Bay community, Kabba S. Kargbo and Robert Salia Koroma, the Secretary General of Dorcoty community respectively, express hope of winning the championship and promise their communities will maintain the peace before, during and after the match.
