The founding father of Wallidan Football Club, Alhaji OB Conateh, has revealed that Wallidan were never consulted by any club to release an international clearance for their striker Kebba Bah.
Kebba is reported to be on the verge of joining a non-league club in FC United of Manchester but the club’s manager, Karl Marginson, said the former Gambia Under 20 player could not be available for selection simply because they are yet to receive confirmation of his international clearance - a news that came to Wallidan officials as a bolt from the blue.
“It’s a news to us that Kebba Bah is with a non-league club in England. We were never consulted by any club for an international transfer certificate, though we would not hesitate to issue transfer certificate under normal circumstances,” OB Conateh told Observer Sports yesterday.
“If the club want an international clearance, they should channel it through the English FA, who will then write to The Gambia Football Association before Wallidan can come in. But as far as I am concerned, neither Wallidan nor the GFA were contacted on the matter,” said the former GFA president who wished the versatile forward all best of luck.
