Grand Bassa Releases Squad for County Meet

Ahead of the opening of the 2016-2017 National County Sports Meet, the head coach of the football defending champions, Daniel Bayougar, has released a list of 25 players and five technical staff members after months of recruitment and selection.

Bayougar, who led Bassa to glory last year after defeating Monsterrado in penalty kicks, has selected three goalkeepers, six midfielders, eight defenders, and eight attackers.

Bassa might have lost some of their key players that won the 2015-16 championship, but the return of star striker David Paye, who got a last-minute equalizer against Monsterrado, and hardworking midfielder Kweku Mensah has boosted the confidence of the technical team.

Bassa, paired in Group A with Bomi, Gbarpolu, and Grand Cape Mount counties, will kick off their campaign on the opening day of the competition when they play Grand Cape Mount.
