It was the end of a successful year for the teen sensation, and one to forever remember.
“Winning the FUFA Women's Player of the Year was a huge thing for me. There are other girls who had equally successful seasons and to be chosen as the best meant a lot for me especially at my age. And to guide the team to the CECAFA title in Jinja made it even sweeter,” Nalukenge added.
Football has been a passion for the forward from a young age. Partly, it was the influence from her father who was a goalkeeper, playing for the local teams in Kassanda.
Naturally, the youngest daughter would accompany her father to games, cheer him on and hoping that one day, she could also grace the pitch liker her daddy.
“In my family, it is just my father and brother who play football. My father played for local teams when he was young and my brother is still playing. I used to watch him play and I would be so happy. When he noticed that I love football, he started encouraging and giving me support. Whenever I played in school, he will always encourage me to do better,” remarked Nalukenge, currently on the books of Ugandan top flight side, Muslim Ladies FC.
