FA CUP HOLDERS WITHDREW FROM CAF CUP


Banjul, The Gambia (TNBES) Observer Sport: The Gambia FA Cup Champions, Young Africans, have confirmed their withdrawal from the continent’s second-most prestigious club competition in CAF’s Confederation Cup.

And as the winners, Young Africans are excepted to represent The Gambia at the Confederation Cup but their decision to pull out means The Gambia hasn’t been represented at the tournament since 2007 season when Hawks
