Former Nigeria U20 women’s player, Sandra Godwin explained that Defenders Babes Handball Club reshaped her nose diving career.
Godwin told www.aclsports.com that leaving Kada Queens for Defenders Babes was her best decision despite being a difficult one.
She revealed that her target in 2023 is to help her team record an unbeaten run and break into the National Senior women’s team.
Godwin said, “Leaving Kada Queen for Defenders Babes was the best decision I have taken since I began handball and I do not regret it. I would have not featured at the 2022 Prudent Energy Handball League if I had stuck with Kada Queens because they were absent; it was a very different one for me but it paid off.
