Four Gamcel female volleyball players are being denied transfer letters by their club, Gambia Sports has gathered.

The four affected players, as gathered by this reporter, are Volleyball stars Sainabou Tambedou, Jama Gai, Anna Marie Bojang and Jalika Jallow.

Unconfirmed sources said the players are dismissed from the team, for attacking their teammate Muminatou Mbowe in January, 2018.

The alleged attackers were said to be Sainabou Tambedou, Anna Marie Bojang, Jama Gaye, Jalika Jallow, Yama Saho, Kura Lowe and Bintou Jarju, all players of Gamcel Volleyball team.

Reports have it that Yama Saho and Bintou Jarju are still playing for the team, while Kura Lowe left the team.

The quartet requested for transfer letters before the start of the volleyball league to join Brikama, following their reported dismissal from the Gamcel Female Volleyball team.

When contacted by this reporter, Musa Susso of the Gamcel Volleyball team said he was in a meeting, while another Team Official Kalidou Bayo better known as KC won’t grant an interview. “I don’t know anything about this!” KC surprisingly told this reporter over the phone.

Bai Dodou Jallow, President of The Gambia Volleyball Federation told this medium that, his executive was yet to receive any official notification of any transfer letter request or Gamcel dismissing the concerned players.

However, he said, his executive is working on mediating between the players and Gamcel to have the players continue playing. “This is between a club and its players but we will try our best to mediate,” Jallow told Gambia Sports.

The players have been at the team for many years and according to observers, the players are key in Gamcel Volleyball team and should not be frustrated by anyone to quit the game so easily.
