Aminat Bello (Naija Ratels) –
Fantastic young forward who has all the attributes of a future star. Pace, power, stamina and capable of producing a match-winning display. She shone like a million star at the 2021 NWFL Championship season and hopefully be aiming at repeating the same form in her debut season at the elite league. She scored three goals and assisted thrice as Naija Ratels rode home to win the second-tier title.
Saidat Adebiyi – (Confluence Queens)
Saidat has no Premiership experience, but was one of the best players for the ‘New Direction’ Ladies at the Flying Officers Cup in Abuja. The young defensive midfielder joined Confluence Queens from non-league side, Young Talent 99 FC and quickly adapted to her new team pattern of play. She is expected to do very well at her maiden Premiership season.
Soribe Chinanza- (Royal Queens)
Soribe is one of the kind of player you would love to have in your team. She has great skills, pace and attacks with the ball very well. She loves taking on defenders and produces a number of eye-catching performance.
Rukayat Shobowale – (FC Robo Queens).
Versatile, resilient, dogged and capable of producing a moment of magic through her skills on the flank. A gritty and tough player. Rukayat was voted the best young player at the Flying Officers Cup Pre-season Championship and is expected to do more in the league.
Kalu Chinyere – (Nasarawa Amazons).
The former Rivers Angels midfielder is a player with a very bright future ahead of her. She is versatile player with impeccable vision across the backline and midfield. She will be hoping to get more playing time under Christopher Danjuma and was impressive in her appearances for the club so far.
Taye Ajibade – (Sunshine Queens).
Taye Ajibade is another player that will be aiming for great moments in the upcoming season. The young ‘Betty Babes’ player will seem to play a key part in her teams campaign. She did well In pre-season and would love to continue with such form.
Flourish Sebastian- (Edo Queens)
Fast, skilful and precise with her passes, Flourish Sebastian has gotten alot to show the Benin Fans when the league starts. Wemimo Mathew’s commitment to youth development will surely give Flourish the chance to blossom more in the squad.
Bridget Agomuoh- (Osun Babes )
The young Osun Babes central defender impressed enough in a Pre-season game against Bayelsa Queens. Whyte Ogbonda had given her the chance to pair with Kemi Abiodun in the absence of Sarah Iloduba and the young defender did well. She is comfortable with the ball at her feet and good at shutting away opposing attackers.
Bashiru Kafayat – (Bayelsa Queens)
The former Osun Babes forward can operate on the right, left or centrally. Her dribbling, speed and tight passing game makes her a nightmare to opposing defenders and her eagerness to be on the ball gives Bayelsa Queens midfield a perpetual attacking outlet.
Doris Ohia – (Naija Ratels)
The only goalkeeper to make this list. Doris made some of the best saves ever seen in Pre-season. She was outstanding with her timing and reflexes and got everyone talking. She has a bright future ahead of her and could be one of the best revelation in the new season..
