ASC Dahra, based in the northwestern town of Dahra, had a terrible time during the Senegalese Ligue 1 2011-2012, finishing the season rock bottom of “Poule B”, scoring only four goals in 14 matches. Next season, ASC Dahra will participate at second level of Senegalese football.
There are not many well-known names in this team but some players are worth mentioning. Moussa Gueye, a central defender or libero, was often captaining the team. The consistent midfielder Cheikh Tidiane Sene was arguably the player of the season. Amadou Cissé Diedhiou was very important to the attacking play of the team. Amath Fall, formerly of ASC HLM, and the highly regarded Arona Ka, who scored three goals last season, was supposed to score the goals for ASC Dahra but both players failed to find the net.
It will be exciting to see if any of the mentioned players is able to win a contract with a top level side before the new season.
