In Summary

  • The team has continued to register good results even after their sponsors Vihiga County failed to pay the playing unit for six months.
  • Free scoring Teresa Engesha bagged a brace while Vivian Nasaka added the other goal as they proved too strong for the guests.
  •  Queens coach Alex Alumira was full of praise for his charges noting that they executed the game plan, while hailing the ‘tough’ opposition.

Despite lack of payment of salaries for the playing unit by sponsors  Vhiga County Government, women football team Vihiga Queens are not letting it get into their heads after they won their third match on the bounce of the 2021 Women Premier League beating visiting Oserian Ladies 3-0 at the Mumias Sports complex on Sunday.

Free scoring Teresa Engesha bagged a brace while Vivian Nasaka added the other goal as they proved too strong for the guests.

And in a post match reflection, Queens coach Alex Alumira was full of praise for his charges noting that they executed the game plan, while hailing the ‘tough’ opposition.

“We are happy for winning our third match in a row, the ladies played just like we had planned and that bore them fruits, we had to prepare well because as you know Oserian is not a walk in the park,” said Alumira.

Alumira however says the girls are yet to hit the top gear but is confident they will soon attain the standards.

“Although we won, the ladies have not gotten to the level I want them to be, they are on track, and I’m more than confident that we shall get there, if we defend this cup it will be better,” said the soft-spoken tactician.

Alumira, in an interview last week said they are targeting a ticket to play in the newly formed champions’ league that will give the girls more exposure and market.

The team has continued to register good results even after their sponsors Vihiga County failed to pay the playing unit for six months.
