Ibrahim Kamara, who is part of the U12 side, thanked Brima Mazola Kamara for his timely visit and for Inspiring them. “I will like to thank you on behalf of the football team and the entire Orthodox Mission.
This visit means a lot to us, and we will try and implement what you have told us. And to you my colleagues, an inspirational figure has given us the advice we need to be disciplined, respectful, serious, and focused on our schooling because education is paramount. We thank you Mr Kamara and we appreciate what you have done for us,” he said.
