Arusha Tigers have raided Kenya Women’s Premier League side Nakuru Queens’ camp and signed two key players for their 2021/2022 Tanzanian Premier League season.

The duo is attacking midfielder Diana Cheptoo Koske and defensive midfielder Linda Nasimiyu who have all signed three-year contract with the Arusha-based side.

The club’s Chief Executive Officer Bernard Esitoko confirmed the new development saying “that’s a good gesture when we start to export our players to the foreign markets, an indication in the growth of the Kenyan women foitball”

“By the duo landing this offer proves our standards are on the upward trend, which to our belief will go a long way in improving their welfare and lifestyles.

“This is the beginning of better things to come,” Esitoko told Standard Sports.

He termed the duo as key players who have contributed to the success of the club and were instrumental to the team’s development program from its formation to promotion to the top flight football.

Nakuru Queens FC assistant coach Calistus Moraa wished the two players well in their new club.

“This is a big achievement for us in the technical bench and playing away from home will also give them the required exposure that could see them serve more years at the national team,” Moraa said.
