A clean and clinical defender, Alexander Florence emerged as 2019 Naija Women Football League Defender of the Season after helping Confluence Queens cement Super 4 qualification. Florence was a giant in Confluence Queens defense line up that kept two clean sheets during the 2018-2019 regular season with one defeat to Ibom Angels. Florence also steered Confluence Queens defence as they secured two away draws, 1-1 at Invincible Angels, and also holding Abia Angels to 1-1 draw away.

Coach Whyte Ogbonda in a recent chat with www.kick442.com agreed that the defense is the greatest asset for Confluence Queens as they rarely concede goals. This can be seen in the course of last season (2018-2029) with the leadership role played by Alexander Florence in the backline. This will be crucial for the club if they are to win the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership trophy come next season.
