In a season that seemed like Ajax Queens would be the perfect team to topple dominant Kawempe Muslim SS, the team did not live to the expectations.
A perfect start last season saw them lead Victoria group for a long time but broke down as the regular season went on.
The team could not even make even the playoffs.
Ahead of the 2017/18 Fufa Women elite league, Ajax Queens have begun early preparations.
The Bulenga based side kicked off training on Saturday at their home (Upward and Downward School).
The first training session saw about 10 players turn up and was conducted by Coach Charles Kayemba who is also the proprietor.
Kayemba stated that he started the preparations early enough to make sure he assess the fitness levels of the players and also integrate new players with the rest of the squad.
“We failed to make the playoffs last season which was our desired target and that is why we have made sure we prepare early enough this time round,” he said.
“I want to assess the fitness levels of players so that by the time the league starts, we are good to go. Besides, the new players need to jelly with the rest of the squad.”
However, players who are still at school have been left out of the early programme to enable them carry on with their studies.
Rwandese players, Fanny Ikamanye and Diane Uwamaria are expected to start training on Friday next week.
Players that attended training
Lukia Namubiru, Harriet Nakkuba, Carol Nakyanzi, Bridget Nabisaalu, Phiona Babumba, Phiona Wanyana, Christine Nankya, Rachael Nalunga, Mariam Musanya and Maria Nangave.
