  Walsall Football Foundation Sierra Leone Emerge Champions

Monday 27th August 2018

Walsall Football Foundation Sierra Leone emerged champions of the ‘Real Amateur Football Competition’ on Saturday (25th August 2018), beating rivals Qua Smart FC 6-2.

Despite challenging heavy rain, the game went ahead in front of local supporters who despite a very wet day, still showed courage in order to witness a great match.

Walsall hit the ground running with 2 goals in the first 3 minutes of play, and constantly had Qua Smart on the back foot as Walsall continued to push forward.

The first goal came in the first minute of play from a direct shot by Walsall Captain, Mohamed P Kamara, Qua Smarts keeper saved, but couldn’t hold onto the ball, leaving Walsall Midfielder Ibrahim Kargbo to score.

Poor defending by Qua Smart made way for Walsall’s second goal in the third minute of play, after a goal mouth scramble and a poor clearance allowed Ishmail Bangura to create a brilliant run past the Qua Smart defense to score in the top corner.

Twenty minutes later, Kumara, who was all over the Qua Smart midfield throughout the first half, scored Walsalls’ third to make it 3 nil, before Qua Smart defender Alies’ heavy shot deflected of Walsall keeper William to make it 3-1 before half-time.

Qua Smart came out strong in the second half, hoping to get back into the game, but Walsall stood firm, and on the 60 minute mark, Bangura scored his second for Walsall to make it 4-1.

Walsall took control of the game once more, much to the enjoyment of their on looking, but very wet support, but on seventy minutes, Qua Smart raised their game once again, when striker Tevez wasted no time and shot passed the Walsall keeper to make it 4-2.

In the final ten minutes of the game, Bangura, Walsalls’ energetic striker, and man of the match, gave Qua Smart no breathing room at all as he completed his hat-trick to make it 5-2, before being substituted by Coach Bandu to make way for Ansumana Turay.

From there on in, Walsall finished the game with ease and comfort, and a sixth goal from Anthony Steven in the last minute of the game was enough for the referee to signal the end of the match, leaving Walsall 6-2 victors, and their support in a more than jubilant mood.

The crowd at The Carlton Carew Mini Stadium at Wilkinson Road, which included Country Minister of Sport, Ibrahim Yelenkeh and other community Stake Holders, had just witnessed its most historic and probably most thrilling youth football match that the community has even seen.

Champions Walsall FC went home jubilant with the trophy in their possession, giving them something they could be proud of.
