GASSAMA WIN BEST REFEREE PRIZE

Gambian Papa Bakary Gassama has been adjudged the Best Referee for the Year 2014.

 

The Gambian clinched the top prize at the expense of Cameroonian Alioum Neant and Doue Noumadiez and was honoured with the Awards Gala held on Thursday, 8 January 2015 in Lagos, Nigeria.

 

Gassama was unarguably one of the foremost African referees during the year under review. The Gambian was one of three Africans selected for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, officiating the Netherlands – Chile clash at the group phase.
