Red Scorpions FC head coach Chorro Mbenga has hailed her players for winning the Gambia Football Federation (GFF) Women’s 1st Division League tournament undefeated.
The Jeshwang-based team, Red Scorpions FC have earlier won the Women’s Division One League but were officially crowned after defeating Brikama United 4-2 during their final league game played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on Friday.
Red Scorpions FC has gone to the entire 2021/2022 league season unbeaten. They won 12 games, drew two and lost absolutely nothing after 14 matches.
Coach Cherno Mbenga and her charges collected 38 points, scored 38 goals and conceded 5.
“The competition was very high and teams that gave us difficulties are Berewuleng and City Girls. We saw what they did during the first round which made us increase our fight to leave no stone unturned,” said Coach Choro Mbenga.
According to her, their future target is to continue winning the league tournament, adding that they are going to scout players and make sure that what happened to them this season will not occur itself next season.
“We are going all out to scout players because honestly, we won the league but there were a lot of challenges when it comes to players. We thank God that we have a team that proves to us that they can do it and that was the belief we put in them so that we at least get the trophy.”
She added they finish the league with only 16 players throughout the second round.
“So, players are my main challenge and that’s what I want to solve going into the next season.”
