Fortune FC of Farato on Thursday became the new champion, and many say, a new force in Gambian football. The team that entered formal football as a Nawettan team in Brikama in 2013 beat all the traditionally established sides to the title with three games to spare. Bankrolled by petro-dalasis from Fortune petroleum company and guided by master tactician Jane Joof, the team made a solid, albeit gradual dominance in the 23 weeks so far played losing only once with just three games to go. With the title now under their belt and the automatic ticket to represent Gambia in African club champions league, Fortune FC is well on the way to become a new force in Gambian football.” All what they need now is to put in place a professional organisational set up that would help them maintain the momentum gained at home and find them a footing in the international front. They have proven that no team in this league can dominate them and they must keep that confidence. The management must be ready to invest and attract the best of the country’s players,” a retired coach told The Standard.
