Mustapha Kebbeh has named Buba Janneh of Bombarda Football Club as his first vice president, Kebba Touray of Gamtel FC as 2nd vice president and Basirou Bajo of Brikama United FC as 3rd vice president.

Two other executive positions will be filled by Borri Darboe of Bakau United FC and Lamin Camara of Lamin United FC and the Gambia Football Referees Association, Kebbeh’s group has confirmed.
