Vihiga Queens will sign players to boost their depth and quality ahead of the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League scheduled for November 5-19 in Cairo, Egypt.

The club’s interim coach Boniface Nyamunyamu has said the six new faces will include three locals and three are foreigners to strengthen the squad.

“We’ll sign one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders and a striker in our road to Cairo. Early this week I submitted their names to the club bosses for negotiations and I’m sure by next week all will be settled so that they can hit the training ground as early as possible,” he said.

The signings come after the Queens edged Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) 2-1 in the CAF Women’s Champions League CECAFA qualifiers’ final at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Thursday last week to qualify.

Nyamunyamu appreciated the Sh500,000 cash token from the ODM leader Raila Odinga awarded to the team on Sunday.
He said that it will motivate his players to work hard

“Our former Prime Minister has also promised to meet the team before our departure to North Africa, and he requested for our full budget for possible sponsorship,” he said.
“This is a huge motivation to my girls and the team at large and that’s why I am urging other stakeholders to come on board and boost our team.”
