Mukono Cricket unleash 32 talented girls team for the inaugural Inter-Hub tournament


Mukono Cricket Community is in full swing as they summon 32 talented girls for intensive training ahead of the highly anticipated Under-18 Girls T20 inter-hub tournament in Gulu.

The excitement is palpable as this marks the inaugural inter-hub event, a long-awaited opportunity for redemption after Mukono Cricket Community faced three consecutive losses to Northerns Cricket Hub last year during their tour.

While the holiday coaching camp includes boys, the spotlight is firmly on the girls’ teams.

Mukono Kings High School leads the charge with an impressive contribution of 11 players, featuring standout names like Tandeka Hope and Nakibuule Elizabeth.

St. John’s SS Mukono Namuyenjye and Masaka SS also make significant contributions, adding depth and experience to the team.

Masaka SS, with four players studying there but residing in Mukono during holidays, expresses confidence under the leadership of Captain Naula Hasifa who expresses confidence in their performance en route to Gulu.

Most of these players participated in Soroti last year in May during the Girls Schools Cricket week, contributing to the team’s quality and experience for the Inter-Hub tournament.

Other notable players join from schools like St. Cornelius SS Kalagala, Agape Christian SS, Victoria High School, Mpoma Royal, and Hilton High School.

Chairman of Mukono Cricket Community, Mr. Kintu Simon, expresses great excitement for this inaugural tournament, confidently anticipating a 5-star performance from his girls.

The addition of Coach Maria Nyende Kagoya, a former player for the Victoria Pearls, brings valuable skills, including ICC-accredited coaching expertise and excellent handling skills for girls.

Out of the 32 girls training at Takajunge Sports Ground and Mukono district headquarters play ground, only 14 will be selected to be part of the Mukono girls’ team that is set to travel to Gulu on January 24 for the under-18 girls tournament, a crucial selection criterion for the U-19 girls team.

This, along with the Girls Schools league starting in March and the Girls Schools Cricket Week, will contribute to forming a formidable under-19 girls team for the world cup qualifiers in Kigali, Rwanda, later in August.

As they embark on this journey, Mukono Cricket Community prepares for a battle of supremacy against East Enders Sports Hub, Soroti Cricket Academy, and the hosts, Northerns Cricket Hub.

The stage is set for a historic and thrilling competition that promises to showcase the talent and determination of these young talented players.
