Mugerwa targets future
The national netball team She Cranes head coach Fred Mugerwa has named a training squad of 30 players with 28 starting training on Sunday may 22,2022 at TLC ground Kamwokya.
Mugerwa named a team to embark on preparation for the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games with the majority of new young players citing continuity and future of the team as the reason why he named more new players on the team.
“I do not expect a player to play three-four world Cups, that is why we have named more new players on the team who are energetic and much explosive,” Mugerwa noted after naming the training squad.
He also named Peace Proscovia as the team skipper replacing Stella Oyella who took over the team in her absence.
Flanked by his assistant Sarah Namuddu, Netball Federation Chief Executive officer Francis Banya and assistant team manager Charles Kirunda, Mugerwa noted the need for teamwork, discipline and unity in the team as key.
“I don’t care how good U are if you are not disciplined and a team player, you will not make it to the final squad,” Mugerwa cautioned players.
The named squad include Peace Proscovia, Mary Nuba, Hanisha Muhammad, Stella Oyella, Asina Kabendera, Christine Namulumba (goal shooters), Irene Eyalu, Shadia Nasanga and Rachael Nanyonga (goal attackers).
Midcourt players (Centres):
Margret Bagala, Jesca Achan, Sarah Nakiyunga, Annet Najjuka, Alicia Wasagali, desire Birungi and Norah Lunkuse.
Shakira Nasaka, Florence Aduniya, Shakira Nakanyike, Nassimu Muteesi, Rose Namutebi, Lillian Ajio, Viola Asingo, Joan Nampungu (assist Captain), Sandra Nambirige, Shaffie Nalwanje, Privas Kayeny, Stella Nanfuka, Faridah Kadondi and Winfred Nankya.
