The former Sunshine Queens forward who has scored five goals in the 2020/2021 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership has emerged as the Osogbo based side’s best player for March 2021.
Yemisi Samuel scored her fifth league goal for Osun Babes as they defeated Abia Angels 2-0 on Wednesday to finish the first round on a winning note.
She received her award during the halftime break of Osun Babes’ week 13 triumph over Abia Angels after former Delta Queens defender, Sunday Blessing had won the award in February.
The result ensured that Osun Babes finished the first round of the league in the eighth position with 17 points.
Samuel opened her goal account when Osun Babes defeated Ibom Angels 0-1 in Uyo. She added two goals to her tally as Osun Babes pummeled Pelican Stars 3-0 on December 23, 2021, before her fourth goal came against Rivers Angels in Port Harcourt as the Omoluabi Queens suffered a 2-1 defeat.
Osun Babes and Yemisi Samuel will play the relegation Playoffs alongside seven other clubs after which two teams will drop to the second tier NWFL Championship.
