The coordinator of the 2020 Nigeria Women Amateur League (NWAL) championship, Joe Amene, has expressed his delight on the successes recorded at the maiden League Championship played in Benin City, Edo State.

Kwara Ladies made history as the first champion of the NWAL with an impressive eight points to beat tough challengers, Ubakala Queens FC to the second spot on laudable seven points.

The two sides were gifted with promotion tickets to the NWFL Pro-League.

Amene however rued the absence of the nation’s cadet coaches at the championship to harvest raw talents for the respective teams.

Amene said: “The championship was a huge success with lot of raw talents in full display in the football showpiece. The turnout of appreciative football fans was huge too.

“Of course, the championship is meant to be a potent avenue for the discovery of talents especially for the national aged-bracket teams.

“Unfortunately, none of the cadet coaches was present at the six-day championship to pick players for the respective teams.

“Nonetheless, the championship lived up to its billing as the two top teams (Kwara Ladies FC and Ubakala Queens FC) that pocketed the NWFL promotion tickets to the pro-league proved their worth as the best.

“Even the other three teams equally brought lots of memories to the championship with their football artistry,” said Amene who is a board member of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL).

The teams that competed in the maiden NWAL championship are eventual winners, Kwara Ladies, runners-up Ubakala Queens, Moje Queens, Omidiran Babes and Naija Ratels FC.
