Nyota is the name of the NCTFC mascot – and what a cracking name!

Triumphant Nyota


In 2011 at the Presentation Night and AGM, Ninja Cats Touch Football Club asked our members to submit nominations to name our mascot and make him a man (or Cat) of the people! All members who were present on the night were handed a voting slip with all the nominations written on it! After a tense voting period, we had our very clear winner – Nyota!

Garth Worboys and Gemma Myers combined to provide us with the name “Nyota”, which means “star” in Swahili, which beat out several other well-considered names. For their efforts in submitting a name, they were rewarded with a credit voucher to the excellent Ninja Cats Merchandise Store and our undying gratitude for naming our beloved mascot!
