U17 Women football National team and former Uganda Martyrs Women Football Club custodian Daphine Nyayenga has joined the FUFA Women Super League champions Lady Doves on a six month short deal.
The custodian (Nyayenga) arrives at the Masindi based side in Kasenge camp this evening as a direct replacement to captain Daisy Nakaziro who parted ways with the club.
Dauphine Nyayenga joined at a disclosed fee but she will bag a UGX. 200,000 salary and entitled to all bonuses and allowances.
After the 2020/21 season, there was a sour relationship between Nyayenga and the Catholic institution Uganda Martyrs Lubaga which saw the two parties bitterly separate.
Daisy Nakaziro and Elizabeth Nakigozi parted ways with the FUFA Women Super League champions Lady Doves shortly after winning the historical first trophy for the club.
The duo have failed to reached a neutral ground for a new deal after the expiration of their contracts in June.
The custodian’s (Nakaziro) short term deal expired and negotiations to renew her contract hit a dead end which led the two to furiously leave the Kasenge camp yesterday.
The 2020-21 Best FWSL goalkeeper Nakaziro and outfield star Nakigozi were part of the team in camp preparing for the Inaugural CAF Women Champions league Qualifiers set to be held in Nairobi Kenya this year.
Daisy Nakaziro joined Lady Doves FC in 2018. She skippered the believers to the FUFA Women Super league glory in 2020- 21 and named best Goalkeeper of the league twice. She was also part of the squad that lost to UCU Lady Cardinals in 2019 finals at Lugogo.
The development confirms Nyayenga will move with the club to Kenya as first choice in the first ever CAF Women champions league zonal qualifiers.
