‘No human is limited’ they say, and so is Ugandan defender Jean Sseninde who recently signed with English North East Regional Women’s Football League side Wakefield Trinity Ladies on a one-year deal.
The former Charlton Athletic, Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers defender in the FA Women’s National League Southern Premier League has been out of action for almost a year due to injuries and administrative duties.
“I agreed on a one-year contract with an option of another extension with the club,” Sseninde told Goal.com.
“I had a lot of injuries and needed to recover and I have used that time off to accomplish other commitments to help develop women’s football and a couple of other administrative work in the game.”
“I am still committed to that and I will never put limits on what I can do and want all young girls to believe it’s all possible,” she added.
Sseninde further revealed that her objective is not only to get back to professional football but also to inspire young girls out there.
“For me now the goal is to settle into getting back to a professional playing setting and also inspiring many young girls in Africa and around the world.”
“They need to know that you can be successful both on and off the field if you trust God, work hard, believe in yourself and stay committed.”
“Never allow people to write you off or define you on what you want to achieve,” she concluded.
Sseninde joins other new signings who include Chelsea Pilmer, Rosie Gresswell and Tyler Carter Dabda.
Wakefield who were established in 2019 are bolstering their ranks ahead of the new 2020/2021 campaign following the cancellation of the season where they finished second on the log before the coronavirus pandemic took centre stage.
