Lady Doves team captains Daisy Nakaziro and Reticia Nabbosa have both signed contract extensions that will keep them at the Masindi outfit next season.
The Crested Cranes duo put an end to the uncertainty hovering around their future at the club by signing one year contract extensions.
Nakaziro and Nabbosa played a starring role in Lady Doves’ top-flight campaign for the past two seasons.
Nakaziro who doubles as the team’s first choice goalkeeper and the skipper says having unfinished business at the club prompted their decisions to renew contracts,
” We have unfinished business at Lady Doves and I have a duty to motivate my teammates to work hard this coming season so that the club attains a new record high in Ugandan football.”
The Crested Cranes shot stopper asserts.
Nakaziro joined Lady Doves at the start of the 2018-19 season from Muteesa I Royal University and has since then maintained her status as Crested Cranes second choice goalkeeper behind Ruth Aturo.
Box to box midfielder Nabbosa who also serves as Nakaziro’s immediate deputy, has previously featured Western United, Olila High School and Gokulam Kerala in India.
Lady Doves will be aiming for their first major silverware after missing out on the FUFA Women Elite League and the FUFA Women Cup last year.
A fortnight ago, Lady Doves parted ways with John Ongodia who served as the team’s head coach in the recently cancelled FUFA Women Super League campaign.
The team has had a total of 11 players renew their contracts including Sarah Nakuya, Juliet Neguwon, Adrine Birungi, Christine “Madam” Ginara, Lydia Nyandera, Eseza Kobusobozi, Esther Namaganda, Gertrude Karungi and veteran defender Gladys Nakitto.
It now implies that the aforementioned players rejoin their teammates who have running contracts with the club. That is, Fazila Ikwaput, Aisha Namagembe, Akiror Irene, Babirye Olivia, Esta Nahimana, Mary Nafula, Elizabeth Nakigozi and Madinah Nakaayi.
Lady Doves will temporarily be under the tutelage of Fred Musiime as they intensify preparations for the 2020-21 FUFA Women Super League season.
