It has always been difficult for Women’s Premier League clubs in the Northern Region to sign players from Women’s Division One clubs. Attempts have always been made but mostly have not been successful. Indeed, this has often led to confrontations. However, recent trends indicate there is a wind of change.

The second transfer window for the 2020-21 season has come with big surprises. Northern Ladies have been able to complete the signing of former Tamale Super Ladies shot stopper Amenyeku Afi and Abigail Amor from FC Savannah. The relative ease with which the duo were acquired is surprising.

Speaking on Suhupielli Soccer School on Suhupielli FM on Sunday, Issah Mohammed Iddrisu, known as Rossoneri, indicated that it was a complete lack of professionalism on the part of some Division One clubs that needlessly hold onto players who could have made impacts with Premier League clubs.

“I salute Tamale Super Ladies and Dahinsheli Ladies for always entertaining offers for their players. Their brilliant goalkeeper Afi is the latest to leave and I commend them for their gesture.” This, he said must be replicated across board, but was quick to add that other clubs do not want to play along.

Rossoneri cited a player like Salamatu Abdulai Nte as a very promising striker who could break boarders when recruited by a premiership side. She currently plays for Bagabaga Ladies, a side that has not played league football for the past three seasons, although through no fault of theirs.

Why on Earth would Nte not rub shoulders with the very players she is competing with for position in the national team, the Black Maidens? He quizzed. “If your club can’t qualify for the Premier League, let your stars join premier clubs.” He added.

Dahinsheli Ladies are noted to be pacesetters in this regard. Fakiha, Victoria and Neindoo Basira are few examples one can readily mention as haven joined elite division clubs. Ayisha and Mariam, both joined Pearlpia Ladies from Savelugu based Yoo Ladies and have since become starters.

It is part of coaching to acknowledge the talent of a player and assist him/her nurture it. This must be carried out even if the needed environment is out of your comfort zone. However, the transfer window closes on March 14. Until then, we expect to see more player acquisitions and ultimately a departure from the unwanted culture of hoarding players who ought to move to properly launch their careers.
