The NFA Women Super League 2015/2016 season awards ceremony were held on Saturday at the NFA Technical centre with Tura Magic crowned champions and the NFA reaffirming their commitments to women football.

After a long season spanning eight months, Tura Magic, who never relinquished top spot after match day one in September 2015, were crowned champions of the Women Super League with 57 points, having won all their 19 matches played and scoring an incredible haul of 235 goals and letting in just one goal and can still add to their tally in their final game.

The star-studded Tura Magic walked away with N$ 40 000, trophy and medals while Khomas NAMPOL Ladies led by Brave Gladiators captain Uerikondjera Kasaona took second place, dethroning V-Power Angels who moved into fourth place on 33 points as NAMPOL were on 43 points by Saturday and Poly Babes taking third place with 40 points.

Officiating at the awards ceremony NFA President Frans Mbidi reaffirmed the mother body’s commitment to women football development and called on corporate Namibia to help provide a conductive environment for the girl-child to play the beautiful game.

“Once again, we have demonstrated a serious level of commitment to women football despite limited resources and I must applaud all the clubs involved and management of the league for a job well done. Our ladies must continue to play and we will always try to make it happen. The fruits are there for all to see from national team performance and change behavior in all the ladies. The ladies are learning a lot from our women football programmes and from that front we are proud indeed. We again reiterate our call to other Namibians to come on board and make the Super League and women football bigger and better because the results can only get better”, Mbidi said.

V-Power Angels were awarded the Team of the Year award with Trevor Nekundi voted Referee of the Season and Zenatha Coleman Player of the Season. Coleman’s Tura Magic teammate Anna Shikusho walked away with the Top Goal scorer award with 55 goals, two ahead of Coleman having scored eight in Magic’s 8-0 demolition of Okahandja Beauties on Saturday.

Okahandja Beauties with 12 games played are now housed at Football House and will play all week in order to conclude their season as well by Friday, 29 April.
