Following in the footsteps of Gboko born players like Francisca Ordega and Dooshima Tarnum who started their career with Invincible Angels and later moved on to play for Adamawa Queens, Hambafen is confident that she has taken the right direction but signing for the Yola based side.

The Nigeria Women U-17 team forward was a revelation last season with Invincible Angels, but her best wasn’t enough to save the Gboko Ladies from going down to the Championship.
” Many people were surprised I moved to Adamawa Queens, instead of some other bigger clubs in the NWFL Premiership. She told thenwfl.com.
” The team manager Mohammed Aminu really wanted me to join the club after watching some of my games last season. He told me about the plans the club has for the future and how he wanted me to play a key role in it.
” And the I had other offers from Nasarawa Amazons, Osun Babes and Edo Queens, but I got more convinced to join Adamawa Queens after speaking with Sandra Akaajime, who is like a sister to me.
” Akaajime told me that Adamawa Queens was the best club for me, if I want to develop steadily as a young player.
They played at last season’s NWFL Premiership Super 4 and has signed some good players this season. I am looking forward to a great season, once the COVID-19 pandemic allows football activities to resume.
