The management of Bayelsa Queens FC has signed five new players for its squad in preparation for the upcoming 2020/2021 Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) season. Media officer of the club, Preye Yabrifa, said this in an interview in Abuja. Yabrifa said the new signings would boost the quality of the squad as they hope to compete in the maiden edition of the CAF Women Champions League.
The club official also said the players have began to undergo medicals to assess their level of fitness, as directed by the Nigeria Women’s Football League (NWFL) for clubs ahead of the new season. However, no date has been announced for the resumption of the league by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 pandemic, as the ban on contact sports has not been lifted.
