* Last season, Lamine Fanné was the star player at Casa Sports. This season, Fanné will lead the attack of ASC Diaraf. The athletic striker has scored 2 goals in 4 games for his new club. Interestingly, Fanné played for US Stade Tamponnaise of Réunion in 2009. The picture is of Fanné, and was found on the official Facebook-page of ASC Diaraf.

* Watch out for Aliou Badji of Casa Sports. The teenage striker has scored 2 goals in 3 games.

* Mamanding Kidiera and Mame Saër Thioune have both been key players for Casa Sports for 8 seasons. Kidiera is a hard-working, disciplined right-back or defensive midfielder, while Thioune is a tough centre-back. Their importance for the team can not be underestimated. Kidiera is also team captain.

* Moussa Soukouna has waited patiently for at least 7 seasons, but now the towering goalkeeper (195 centimeters) is the undisputed number one at Casa Sports. Soukouna has had a terrific start to the Senegalese Ligue 1 2014-2015, conceding only 3 goals in 5 games.

* Tall, elegant midfielder Mamadou Loum Ndiaye of US Ouakam is definitely a player to watch. Last month, Ndiaye was included in the squad of the Senegal U-20 national football team.

* Momo Cissé has been impressive in the central defence of Diambars this season. Check out the following video, showing glimpses of his qualities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhGYdHtzEBg.

* Goalscoring left-back Babacar Seck is now team captain of ASC Diaraf. Seck is a quality player, arguably the best full-back in the Senegalese Ligue 1. His excellent stamina allows him to cover every inch of the left-side of the field. I am surprised that Seck is still playing in Senegal.

* Guédiawaye FC has three Nigerian key players. Attacking midfielder Ugochukwu Nwachukwu, who I believe is the same player that featured for Enyimba FC in 2013, has scored 2 goals in the last 2 games. Prolific striker Kingsley Elechi, formerly of Lobi Stars FC and Kano Pillars FC, has scored 1 goal in 3 games. Midfielder Sunday Abah, who I believe played for Nigerian second level side Apa United FC in 2012-2013, is the least known of the Nigerians, but nevertheless a valuable member of the team.

* Benoit Toupane and Ibrahima Wadji is a very interesting striking pair at Mbour Petite Cote (formerly known as Touré Kunda de Mbour). Last season, Toupane was top scorer for Touré Kunda de Mbour, apparently with 5 goals, while Wadji was top scorer for relegated Yeggo Foot Pro, apparently with 4 goals. 19-year old Wadji is a product of the renowned Académie Mawade Wade.

* Powerful centre-back Abdoulaye Seck is back in Senegal and ASC Niary Tally after an unsuccessful period in Belgium. Seck played 2 games for ASC Anderlecht in 2010-2011, and 11 games (1 goal) for FC Brussels in 2011-2012. At ASC Niary Tally, Seck will become a key player.

* Olympique Ngor has signed 34-year old veteran striker Papa Edouard Georges Latouffe, who has played in the United Arab Emirates for several years. His clubs include Bani Yas, Ajman and Al-Khaleej.

* ASC SUNEOR has two Gambian key players. Attacking midfielder David Sambou has already scored 2 goals this season. Newly-signed striker Foday Trawally, formerly of GAMTEL FC and Brikama United FC, has yet to find his scoring boots.
