Apollon Ladies FC forward Juliet Nalukenge, who was for the 2021/22 season on loan at Chrysomolia FC, has expressed readiness to use her form abroad, to steer the Uganda Crested Cranes to big success.

The star forward had a great run in the preceding campaign where she scored seven goals, making her the club top scorer in her first season in Cyprus first division women.

“I am really delighted that in my first season abroad, I was able to play well despite being on loan at Chrysomalia FC,” Nalukenge was quoted by the FUFA website.

“I ended the season as the club top scorer with seven goals and this helped me earn a three-year contract at my club Apollon Ladies FC. I believe this will motivate me to even get better next season.”

The proficient striker will be tasked to carry her scoring boots along as Uganda prepares for the CECAFA Women’s Championship and Women Africa Cup of Nation in June and July respectively.

“I feel happy to be part of the National Team set up with two tournaments coming up, I can only promise to help the team achieve the set target,” she revealed.

Uganda will face Rwanda, Burundi and Djibouti in group A of the CECAFA Women Championship which will kick off on on 1st June and end of the 11th, same month hosted by FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.
