Awoko reports that She made this disclosure while addressing female football club owners and managers in the Western Area on Thursday July 29th at the SLFA Secretariat.
“We crave your indulgence to get your teams fit and ready for the women’s competitions. We know the game has been in deep slumber for over a decade but now is the time to wake it up for good,” Haja Kamara said.
She admonished club owners to give their unflinching support to the new President, Thomas Daddy Brima and his new executive so that together “we can build a better football nation”.
Several stakeholders in the women’s game made salient contributions while expressing their dismay over the lack of a structured and competitive women’s league.
“We want to have a women’s league that is attractive and competitive; our talents are dying; the women’s national teams are starving and the fans are growing uninterested. Let us come together and move the women’s game forward and help the SLFA EXCO to achieve their dreams,” coach Conteh of Prisons FC said.
Mahmoud Kargbo of Mahmoud FC appealed to club owners and managers to give their best in ensuring that female football is played everywhere in the country. “As owners and managers of female football, our focus should be on the girls and infrastructural development of the game. If we put our house in order and support our female football rep in the Executive Committee, I’m sure this administration will not let us down,” Kargbo said.
Miriam Heroe, head of Female Football at the SLFA assured club owners and managers that modalities have been put in place to ensure a smooth sail towards women’s football development at national level.
