Batti Jaha crowned champions of Nianija district Nawettan

Batti Jaha captured the 2017 Nianija district Nawettan football tournament after playing unbeaten among 13 clubs including the two sides from the district capital, Chamen Nianija. 

Batti Jaha and cross-town rivals Buduk Sarreh Janko played out a scoreless draw in the final game of the tournament last Saturday before the game proceeded to penalty kicks which ended in a 5-4 win in favour of Batti.

It was a colorful final and tumultuously graced by district elites, children, men and woman from all works of life.

The national assembly member of the area, Honorable Amadou Camara, who sponsored the tournament, took the kickoff earlier before handing over the champions trophy to the winners.

Batti Jaha went home with a cash prize of D3500 while Buduk Sarreh Janko got D2000.

Gratitude was also extended to the natives of Chamen Nianija living in the diaspora who gave out D500 each to all the 13 teams that participated in the competition.
