The 2016-17 Liberia National First Division has come to an end, with league defending champions Barrack Young Controllers keeping the pressure on FC Fassell at the top of the league table.
The performance of Liberian clubs in continental club events over the past years has been rather poor. Whether it is Mighty Barrolle, Invisible Eleven, Barrack Young Controller or LISCR FC, all have faced first round exits. This year proved no different as there was another poor performance was by Liberia’s representative, Nimba United.
Alpha Jalloh was once again the hero of spot kick after saving two penalty kicks for reigning Liberia Football Association knockout cup champions Barack Young Controller II.
