Victoria Conteh secures first win as Tigers’ coach

The first female coach in the Sierra Leone Premier League, Victoria Conteh, secured her first win as East End Tigers Coach by defeating Bo Rangers 2-1 in Freetown. Maurice Kamara scored both goals for the yellow submarines in the first six minutes, earning him the Man-of-the-Match award from Orange SL. “I feel so happy to win the man of the match award. This is a sign of motivation to continue playing well for my club and fans”, Kamara said. Conteh described her first win as “very important” to her, the club and fans across the country with the zeal to do more to win the league this season. “I feel very proud and happy to secure my first win as Tigers’ head coach. I hope to continue winning in order to increase my chances of winning the league and make history in the world”, the 45-year-old noted. She added, ” I always say, what men can do, women can do better and that I have shown to the people of Sierra Leone today.” The win has taken East End Tigers to 6th position with 7 points (W2, D1, L1) with the hope of defeating Central Parade in their next encounter on Thursday. Victoria Conteh is the second woman to manage a top-flight men’s club in Africa after Ethiopia’s Meseret Manni coached Dire Dawa in 2015. She is the only CAF ‘A’ licensed female coach in the country and has previously been in charge of the women’s U-20 team and the Sierra Leone Police Women’s outfit.
