Benue Queens player, Dorathy Nyagh says her aspiration is to be among the best female players in Nigeria professional handball. Benue Queens finished second at the 2019 National Division one Handball League in Kaduna.
Nyagh told www.aclsports.com that Benue Queens will fight to remain at the Prudent Energy Handball League for a long time.
The former Defenders Babes player said, “I work hard and smart daily because I do not know what lies ahead in the future. I am aspiring to be among the best in the Nigeria Professional handball scene and will put in more effort if I find myself playing outside the shores of Nigeria.
“My main focus now is to help my team at the 2020 Prudent Energy Handball League. This year’s edition is going to be very tough because it is round robin; the fight for survival at the league is on.
“Benue Queens are preparing very well and I know with the help of our experienced coaches, we shall return back to our Glory days”.
On her short stint with Defenders Babes, Nyagh said, “The move to the Abuja based club was for more playing time. When the Handball Federation of Nigeria (HFN) signed an agreement with Prudent Energy limited in 2018, Benue Queens did not register that was why Civil Defenders Babes got me to play for them.
“In 2019, Benue Queens HC registered for the Division one that was when I ditched Civil Defenders Babes and left for my team full time”
She revealed to www.aclsports.com her Senior Secondary School coach; Tondo Godwin encouraged her to becoming a better player.
Nyang said, “Tondo Godwin was my coach in secondary School. He is also a retired Benue Buffaloes and a Veteran (Benue Chapter).
“He is that Coach that never gives up on a player, encouraging and very optimistic when he has seen the potentials. Today, I am a manifestation of his hard work”.
