Prince Barrie


FC Kallon young lad, Prince Barrie took just thirty minutes to make an impact for FC Kallon, scoring a brace in his side 2-0 victory over Old Edwardians at the National stadium mail bowl in Freetown on Saturday.

The win takes them to second level on points with Mighty Blackpool and Gem Stars respectively. The young lad put his side two minutes in the first after converting Abdulai Bundu aka `Abedi` cross into the back of the net.

Barrie registered his second of the day after misplacing goal keeper Osman Tommy aka `Van Der Sar` with a low volley to seal the all important victory. Sierra Leone legend, Mohamed Kallon could have punished his boyhood club after his thirty yards shot was saved Tommy.

Mohamed `Parisco` Kamara twice came very close to give his side hopes but his brilliant shot went wide.

The result means Edwards have failed to secure victory over their local rivals FC Kallon in their last seven meetings away from home.

Speaking after the match, assistant coach of FC Kallon, Amidu Karim however expressed his delight over his side`s victory. He said: “We deserved the victory because we played good football, he told this medium.

“I think we deserved more than today`s result but will try to correct where we went wrong”. He applauds Barrie and Bundu for their excellent performance, adding that the duo are the future breed of the team.

Head coach of Old Edwardians, Skeku A. Kamara said his side suffered defeat to FC Kallon because his new signings were restricted before the match. He however promise supporters that his side will bounce back against Anti Drugs in Monday`s fixture at the SLFA football academy.
