The 2022/23 FUFA Women Super League season drew to a close on Sunday 30th April 2023.

Kampala Queens FC won the title while coach Ayub Khalifah guided Kawempe Muslim Ladies FC to a second-place finish.

The relegation battle was settled on the final day and, several records were registered from the just-concluded season.

Allow us to start with the quickest goal under 10 seconds which was scored by Kawempe Muslim Ladies FC’s striker Allen Nassazi against She Makerere.

First League goal, own goal

The first FUFA Women Super League goal was scored by She Corporate FC‘s pacy forward Spencer Nakacwa.

The silky finisher scored for the then-defending champions against She Makerere in the league opener.

On a low note, Asubo Gafford Ladies FC‘s captain Shakirah Nagudi was the first player to score in her net.

She miscalculated a cross in a game her team lost 5-3 to Uganda Martyrs Lubaga Women FC.

First yellow card, red card

She Makerere defender Benitah Nagujja was the first player to enter the referees’ books in the 2022/2023 season.

Nagujja got the first yellow card of the league when her team was playing against She Corporate FC.

Away from the yellow corner to red, fans witnessed the first red card in the game between Kampala Queens and She Makerere.

Makerere’s Josephine Ndagire was sent for an early shower after a terrible foul on Queens midfielder Shamirah Nalugya.

Still, on dismissals, She Corporate’s Daphine Nyanyenga was the only goalkeeper to receive a red card in a game her side lost 4-3 to Rines SS.

First goalkeeper to register an assist

Uganda Martyrs Lubaga Women FC goalkeeper Sharon Kaidu Norah became the first goalkeeper to bag an assist.

She assisted Latifah Nakasi in their 1-1 all-draw against She Corporate FC in a home game in Lubaga.

Rines SS WFC goalkeeper Elsie Najjemba did the same against She Makerere when she assisted Jesca Namanda.

Most goals, assists in a single game

Lady Doves forward Norah Alupo scored the most league goals in a single game when she netted four times against Rines SS WFC.

However, Kawempe Muslim Ladies FC’s special talent Shakirah Nyinagahirwa scored 12 goals, the most in the league.


She went on to win the top scorer and MVP awards thanks to her 19 goals involvement in the league, the highest.

For assists, Uganda Martyrs Captain Catherine Nagadya registered three assists when her side beat UCU Lady Cardinals 4-1 in Lubaga, she concluded the league with the most number of assists, 11.

First Free kick goal

Scoring direct from a set piece is common in women football but it takes a lot of composure and the right technique.

Arguably the best female player in Uganda, Hasifah Nassuna scored the first free-kick goal.

This was against She Makerere in the first stanza of the game when Kampala Queens beat She Makerere 0-1 in Makerere.

Braces and Hat-tricks Record

Asubo Gafford’s Miriam Nakayiwa netted twice against Uganda Martyrs Lubaga WFC on match day two to become the first player to score a brace in the league season.

However, Uganda Martyrs’ Latifah Nakasi beat her to the quickest brace when she scored two goals in three minutes.

Her clinical display saw her side thrash Asubo Gafford 5-3 on their home soil despite coming off the bench.

On to the threes, Masindi-based club, Lady Doves’s striker Norah Alupo netted the first hat-trick of the season against Rines SS at Kabaka Kyabagu stadium in Wakiso.

Notably tthough, Asubo Gafford Ladies’ midfielder Zaitun Namaganda scored the club’s first-ever hat-trick in the top flight.

Inside just 13 minutes against Rines SS, the triple was the fastest hat-trick of the season as well.

Penalties in Numbers

Rines SS WFC were awarded eight penalties, the most in league but the side managed to convert only six.

The 18-year-old Eva Nagayi scored the most penalty goals in the league. She put six penalties past the goalkeepers.

In the custodians corner, Uganda Martyrs goalie Sharon Kaidu Norah saved two penalties.

She saved Eva Nagayi’s penalty on match day one and also stopped Hadijah Nandago‘s penalty on match day nine.

Meanwhile, the first penalty of the league was awarded to She Makerere against She Corporate FC.

Sharon Namatovu took on the responsibility but was denied by the experienced goalkeeper Fatumah Matovu
