Sunshine
Queens Coach, Kayode Olujohungbe has stated his target for the South-West outfit
ahead of the upcoming Nigeria Women Premier League 2014/ 2015 season.

The
Nigeria Women League board held its congress on March 24 where the 2nd of May
was approved for the commencement of the new NWPL season.
Speaking
to Naijafootball247.com, Olujohungbe said his target is to win both the League
and Federation Cup and is optimistic he can make up for the mistakes of last
season.
“I
want to win the double next season and we will work very hard to achieve that
feat. We went so close last season and lost it eventually but this time around
we will put all the mistakes right.
“At
some point the girls took their feet off the pedal when they were on top form
especially during the Africa Women Championship break. The girls lost form and
concentration. They found it difficult to return to full fitness and that’s why
we lost in the two competitions. But I am very confident things will go on
smoothly in the upcoming season.” said Olujohungbe
Sunshine
Queens were one of just two only teams (alongside Rivers Angels) that had 100%
home record as they won all their home games, picking a total of 30 points from
their respective home matches and Olujohungbe emphasized his team’s resolve.
“We
are going for every competition and that’s why the new girls we have brought in
to the team are from top clubs in the Nigeria Women Premier League. My aim is
to become double champions of Nigeria. If you look back at our performance, you
will know it is very possible,” he boasted.
The
Ondo State government sponsored club has acquired the services of former Rivers
Angles duo, Aminat Yakubu and Regina Macfancy ahead of the next season. Both
players have represented Nigeria at the U-17 Fifa Women’s World Cup in recent
times.
Former
Angels forward, Aminat Yakubu was in the Flamingoes team at last year’s U-17
Fifa Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica scoring 
a goal in Nigeria’s 3-0 win over 
Mexico in the Group stage.
She
was also on target for the Flamingoes team that thrashed the host, Azerbaijan
11-0 at the U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2012.
In
the same vein, Regina Macfancy who is a defensive midfield stalwart featured at
the U-17 World Cup in 2008 and was also in Kadiri Ikana’s Africa Women
Championship team to Equatorial Guinea in 2012.
Olujohungbe
who is a former assistant coach of Ondo State’s men team Sunshine Stars joined
the Queens mid last season, taking over from Kennedy Boboye who moved in the
opposite direction.
Olujohungbe
would lead the team to the 2014 Federation Cup final where they lost to Rivers
Angels and also finished third on the NWPL table behind Pelican Stars and
Rivers Angels.
They
won 11 and lost 9 of their 20 league games played last season, scoring 25 goals
while conceding 20 number of goals.
