Chairman of newly promoted Premier side, Unisa Alim `Awoko` Sesay has told this press that his young side will come strong against his beloved team East End Lions in next week`s Premier showdown at the Ernest Bai Koroma stadium in Newton, Western Rural.

He said: “We cannot afford losing our opening fixture especially against East End Lions”, he told this press. “East End Lions is a well established club to battle out with but you never know as we have seen surprises in world soccer across the globe,” Awoko said.
Asked whether his side will bow to the `Killers` because of his relationship with the club, he replied hastily, “That is nonsense! “Despite been a stakeholder of East End Lions our priority is to be at the top five, adding that his side will not only defeat EE Lions, but will also tame the likes of Diamond Stars, Mighty Blackpool, FC Kallon and Ports Authority in their coming fixtures”, he stressed.
When asked why they chose EBK stadium, Awoko said: “The stadium is in the rural area and an area of cultivation of cannabis sativa, so taking our matches to that part of the country will spread the message out as we are advocating against the use of drugs and holistic trafficking, he added.
“We want to expose the EBK venue to the general populace and compliment the good efforts of the honorable of the constituency. He however, called supporters to rally behind the club ahead of the coming season.
