There is a myth that lightning never strikes in one place twice. Makerere University surprised many when they won the FUFA Women’s Cup in 2019 given the fact they had spent most of the previous campaigns languishing in the drop zone.
However, the addition of players like Amina Nabiba, Viola Namuddu and Stella Namisango gave the team a better look and eventually attained success.
The University Side hopes that lighting once again strikes as teams prepare to play in the 2021 FUFA Women Super League.
Last season, SHE MAK played in the second division (FUFA Women Elite League) but have been able to bounce back to the top tier league with relative ease.
Coach Fred Ndawula who guided them to success two years ago is still in charge and the core of the team has remained intact.
The addition of defender Carol Anyango seems to even make them better.
And ahead of the new season that gets under on 19th, April at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru, Makerere University will hope that lady luck who followed them enroute to triumph the FUFA Women’s Cup does the same this year.
She was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) as Makerere University won the FUFA Women’s Cup in 2019 and continues to be a key player for the team.
Nababi knows what it means to challenge for the League, having won three with Kawempe Muslim Ladies.
The left footed forward dictates most of the attacks for the team and has the ability to take on defenders.
With the addition of Namatovu, SHE MAK’s strength definitely lies in their forward line. She has previously played at Muteesa I Royal University and Lady Doves.
With the support of Nababi, Rebecca Nakasato and Jemima Twesigye and Viola Namuddu who is deployed as a central midfielder despite playing right back at the national team will make the team lethal going forward.
Makerere University’s being undoing is that they sometimes appear to be without purpose and only playing for the sake.
Despite having some players with quality, they can only deliver with a bit of pushing.
