Father Joseph Gough passed away yesterday aged 73.
The erstwhile principal of St Augustine Senior Secondary School, Gough is one of the reasons for the development of Gambian Sport. The Manjai Father Gough Field is named after him owing to his tireless contribution to our game. That field today though is the nothing but a symbol of sorrow with the carpet all torn apart.
Fr Joseph Anthony Gough Cssp left Banjul to go back to Ireland on his Doctor’s advice; evidently on his own terms unlike when he unceremoniously left on July 14, 1983. a heartbreaking moment to see at that time.
Rest in Peace Legend!
