Lady Doves WFC Director Julius Mugisha confirms that the teams’ continuous success is a result of maximum discipline right from the technical department to the players.
Lady doves clinched their maiden FUFA Women Super League title after a 2-1 win against UCU Lady Cardinals at FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.
“Our success is due to maximum discipline emphasised at the club,” Mugisha said during a live interview on CBS FM.
“I am happy with the attitude portrayed by the people at the club. You can see the dedication towards the objectives of the club, and that has started to pay off,” Mugisha added.
Lady Doves had their first shot at the women’s title in 2019 but fell at the final hurdle against UCU Lady Cardinals at Lugogo. But revenge was finally served two years later in Njeru.
The Masindi based club earned a ticket to represent Uganda at the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League finals due in November in Morocco.
However, they will have to navigate past the CECAFA regional qualifiers, scheduled for Kenya between July 17 and August 1.
“We feel motivated now as we turn our attention to qualifying for the CAF Women Champions League, but the team will require a boost in some of the positions that were lacking during the tournament,” Mugisha stated.
“We have always had healthy business with most of the teams in the country, and it is time we also benefit by getting the supporting hand that we need to represent the country well.”
“Apart from that, I would like to thank FUFA for the support they have extended to women’s football.”
As a club, we were even more excited when we learnt that the federation will be behind us as we fight to reach Champions League,” he stressed.
FUFA has always extended a helping hand to clubs representing Uganda in the continental competitions, and FUFA president Moses Magogo affirmed that Lady Doves will receive the necessary support.
Costs like air tickets for up to 25 people including players and officials plus other travel-related expenses will be catered for by FUFA.
