Real Republicans Football Club has returned back to the Premier League, after they defeated Belvic United by a lone goal to lead their group with 7 points, which automatically elevated them to the Premier League after eight (8) years in the wilderness.
The only goal which brought them back to the Premier League was scored by Alimany Samura in the first half of the match.
Their opponent Belvic United only needed a draw to see them going to the Premier League as they were leading Real Republicans by two points; but they failed to secure a point after having wasted possible chances.
After the match, the Head Coach of Real Republicans Issa Sesay said that this is one of the happiest moments in his life as he was able to bring Real Republican back to the League.
He stressed that finance would not be a problem for the team as most of the Officials have assured them that they would come on board if the team makes it to the Premier League.
Coach Sesay intimated that new players would be incorporated into the team as they prepare for the league, in order to beef up standards.
The Team Doctor, Mohamed Kamara who has been very instrumental to the team, noted that their dream has become a reality, as they have returned back to the Premier League.
The first team to be promoted to the Premier League this year was Kamboi Eagles, after they defeated Yambattu Stars by six goals to nil; and the Sierra Leone Police by one goal to nil.
