Bubacarr Trawally’s Yanbian have been promoted to the Chinese Super
League after finishing the season atop.
The young Gambian’s seventeen goals have been phenomenal in Yanbian’s
impressive run and subsequent promotion to the top tier.
The 20-year-old, Gambia highest goal scorer overseas, first joined the club on loan from Green Town whom he’s contracted to a longer term.
His transfer didn’t generate fuss but no sooner had the ex-Real de
Banjul playmaker settled than he began to storm Chinese league –
dominating newspaper headlines in Yanbian province.
The erstwhile Charles graduate earned call-up to the national team for
his exploits in China and starred full time in his debut for Gambia
against Namibia October 13.th
‘Praise be to God. (It) wasn’t an easy road but thank God we finally
made it to the Super League with two more games to go….feels good to
have her over to celebrate with me,’ a delighted Bubacarr whose sister
flew over to watch in China, said.
Yanbian lost only two games in twenty-eight matches with fifty-eight
points and top of the table.
