Gunjur village is bracing up for a football match between Cathy and Gamcel football Clubs on the eve of the Tobaski. The match has been dubbed as the clash of rivals, which is going to make it all the more exciting. The previous matches between the two teams have always been scintillating, entertaining and fiercely contested.
Gunjur league is organised by a committee selected by representatives of various teams in the village and its satellites and the winner goes home with a beautiful trophy and a cash prize. The runners-up also get a consolation prize.
Speaking about the importance of the league, the Chairman of Gunjur Sports Association, Buba Bojang, said it is not so much the pecuniary gains that make the organising of the league important but it makes the village much more lively and, more than any other thing, brings the people together.
Gunjur league is always interesting and has over the years produced players for the Gambia national teams such as Habib Kunta and star Janneh, just to name but a few, who have gone on to be among Gambia's finest players.
