“Women clubs need lots of Support, and I will encourage Women in good social standing to do lots of advocacy work for the development of Women Football, Women football requires lots of finances, and that is how come they rejoiced over the YEA financial support, we have invested in Television equipment to enable us produce quality women football for spectators who may not be able to come to the match venues”.
