It is always joy unlimited for a parent to witness the gradual growth, development and elevation of his son or daughter.

From the earliest hours during the first crucial cry through to the days and weeks as a toddler, pre-teens, teens, puberty to the adulthood, a parent yearns to witness growth of their off-springs.

In the sporting sphere, it is a dream for every sports personality to play for the national team and earn professionally from his or sweat.

The dream for eight Amus College School students to represent their country of birth (Uganda) will soon be realized.

These eight junior players are part and parcel of the wider (provisional) 32 man squad by coach Sheryl Botes ahead of the double header FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers against Zambia in May 2024.

Seven of these players feature for Amus College School team and Byafaayo Queens women football club in the FUFA second tier national league.

Goalkeeper Dorcus Namboozo as well as outfield players Sharlom Nambuya, Tamisi Shafiga, Asia Kakai, Mariam Namataka, Doreen “Morata” Alijat and Joyce Kaniza are at Byafaayo Queens whilst Angela Adeke is at Royal Queens women football club.

Ironically, these 8 players are currently part of the national Fresh Dairy USSSA games in Luweero and will have to depart the tournament before the crucial semi-final stage (if their team makes it past the round of 16 and quarter final stage).

To director Hon. Patrick Opolot Isiagi, he envisages this opportunity as a blessing to the players as they continue to be nurtured in their careers.
