English Championship side Watford have signed on Nigerian-born forward Adekite Fatuga-Dada to a new contract ahead of the 2022/23 Women's Football season.

The 25-year-old Super Falcons invitee continues her seven-year association with the English club after joining Watford as an 18-year-old in 2015.

Fatuga-Dada is set to play for Watford in the 2022/23 FA Women’s National League Southern Division which kicks off on Sunday, August 21.

Watford confirmed the contract renewal of Fatuga-Dada on their official website, whilst also welcoming Andria Georgiou and Gemma Davison to their female team tagged 'Golden Girls.'

The club described Dada-Fatuga as a playmaker known for her 'eye for goal' while recounting the impact of the 25-year-old across various tournaments for the Watford FC Women team.

The statement read in part: ".... Fatuga-Dada looking to build on her historic Hornets career at senior level, which began as an 18-year-old in 2015.

"Now 25, the creative forward is one of the longest-serving players at the club having joined through the Watford Community Sports & Education Trust as a youngster.

"Fatuga-Dada made her debut against Doncaster Rovers Belles in August 2015 and has never looked back, making over 100 appearances and becoming an indispensable member of the squad at WSL2 and National League level.

Fatuga-Dada is regarded as one of the more experienced players in the Watford FC Women team, having helped the team secure promotion to the Championship from the National League.

"She also helped the Hornets to Championship promotion in the curtailed 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons," the statement continued.

"Known for her playmaking abilities but possessing an eye for goal, Fatuga-Dada’s experience at Watford and in the National League stand her in good stead for the upcoming season, as she embarks upon another exciting campaign in yellow."

Adekite Dada-Fatuga was invited to the Super Falcons training camp in Abuja in November 2021 ahead of the African Women's Championships Qualifiers against Ivory Coast.

The 25-year-old played for the England U19 Women's team in the past but she has now completed her registration to be eligible to play for the Super Falcons of Nigeria.
