Ebrima Sohna, retired Scorpions player, who was also one of the organisers of the charity friendly game stated that the monies gained during the friendly game between The Gambia CHAN Team and The Gambia Foreign-based (professional) players will be shared between the two fans clubs (the National Scorpions Fans Club and the Smiling Coast Fans Club) to support their activities.
Ebrima Sohna, who was speaking with reporters shortly after the game, said that the initiative was meant to raise funds to support the activities of the two fan clubs of The Gambia.
“Both of the fans clubs are aware that the charity match is for them, which is why they are all present. We will share the money gained from the game to both of the fan clubs,” he said.
According to him, the charity match is a good test for The Gambia CHAN Team who are preparing for CHAN Afcon qualifiers noting that playing against the Gambian professional players and containing them to a goalless draw is a good result.
