•Mercy Ayodi and Anniter Namata quit the club to join Kampala Queens while Winnie Babirya joined Makerere Queens in Uganda.
• Janet Bundi moved to Yanga Princess in Tanzania and Martha Obatta signed for Sethu FC in India.
Vihiga Queens' head coach Boniface Nyamunyamu says he can now breathe a sigh of relief after signing six new players ahead of next week's transfer window closure.
Nyamunyamu said the six are replacements for an equal number who recently exited the club in search of greener pastures abroad.
The tactician said the new players have what it takes to fill the gaps left by the six in the ongoing transfer window that ends on February 8.
Mercy Ayodi and Anniter Namata quit the club to join Kampala Queens while Winnie Babirya joined Makerere Queens in Uganda. Janet Bundi moved to Yanga Princess in Tanzania and Martha Obatta signed for Sethu FC in India.
Following the development, Vihiga Queens have hired the services of Sheila Juma, Emily Morang'a, and Vivian Akinyi from Nyakach Girls. Gaspo trio of Musembi Jennifer, Asingare Mirriam, and Pauline Kuthure also joined Vihiga
"We are in a competition and we must have bench power that can keep us in the game despite injuries and other shortcomings we might experience as a team," Nyamunyamu said.
"The three players from Gaspo Ladies FC are experienced and those from Nyakach Girls are equally good. For us, it is one step at a time as they aspire to gel with the rest of the squad," he added.
Nyamunyamu said he is hoping to keep the current squad intact because the Kenya Women's Premier League has reached a critical stage.
"We are left with less than four days before the window closes and losing another player will deal us a major blow," he said.
Meanwhile, Wadadia Ladies FC tactician Silvanus Wesonga says they have no plans to recruit any new player despite the exit of Tabitha Amoit who joined Ulinzi Starlets.
Instead, Wesonga said they are working on a partnership with Wiyeta Girls and St.Joseph Shikotim to recruit young players, who can grow with the club.
"Our mission is to build talents and we can only achieve that by nurturing those young girls from schools," Wesonga said.
