Uganda Cricket Rewards Victoria Pearls Players With Contracts


Uganda Cricket Association has confirmed issuing contracts to 12 Victoria Pearls (National Women Cricket team) players!

The development means that the selected players will receive a monthly salary from the Association, a privilege that also comes with Medical care.

This is the latest move from Uganda Cricket who also awarded contracts to the Men’s team (Cricket Cranes) back in February 2021.

The Association has started that the awarded contracts will be reviewed every four months.

“We believe this will motivate the ladies to scale greater heights,” reads a statement in part from the UCA.

The move, announced on Women’s Day, comes with great motivation especially at a time in the year when they travel to South Africa for the T20 World Cup Qualifiers.

The 12 contracted players have been categorized into two groups A and B based on their performances last year:

Category A – Consy Aweko, Kevin Awino, Janet Mbabazi, Evelyn Anyipo, Immaculate Nakisuyi, Rita Musamali, Sarah Akiteng.

Category B – Stephanie Nampiina, Irene Alumo, Phiona Khulume, Patricia Malemikia, Gloria Obukor.
