On Tuesday, U20 National Team(Hippos) head Coach and Assistant Cranes coach Matia Lule made a visit to the Crested Cranes camp and shared motivational, inspirational and tactical knowledge on and off the pitch with the ladies.

He preached change of mindset and attitude as factors that affect the performance of any player.

Crested Crane’s current non residential training camp at Lugogo is vital as they prepare for the 2018 CECAFA Women championship  in Rwanda and for bonding purposes.
