There is finally light at the end of the tunnel for Kenyan international Lilly Awuor, after she landed the requisite permit that allows her to stay in Tanzania where she plies her trade for Tanzania Women Premier League (TWPL) side Kigoma Sisters.
The Kisumu Youth Olympic Club (KYOC) prodigy who missed the first match of the second leg, was scheduled to play in a mid-week clash against Kagera FC but the opponents requested for the match to be rescheduled. She will therefore be available for the next match against Mwanza side Marsh Academy on Thursday 19 January.
Lilly currently tops the goal scorers' charts with 13 goals and states that she is happy that the permit issue has been sorted. She is looking to replicate her fine form in the upcoming league matches, following the rekindled hope.
"It was a tough opening week after learning that I could not play. Watching from the sidelines made me realize that when given a chance I should give my all because the future is not guaranteed. I will try and work hard and score more goals to help my team fight for the title. Now that there is hope I am charged to make use of every chance," the 19 - year old said.
The league resumes on Wednesday 12 January with Singinda playing Dodoma at Jamhuri Stadium, while Marsh Academy (Mwanza) take on Iringa at Samora Grounds in another tie.
