After spending the first leg of the season away on military progression courses, Justing Onwonga returned to the team in the second half of the season, but has not had much of play time. On Sunday 19th May, he was however handed a start against Chemelil Sugar, and had a good review from head coach Benjamin Nyangweso.
Deployed on the flanks, interchangeably with Daniel Waweru, Onwonga troubled the Chemelil defence with his speed for the 60 minutes he featured and the coach noted that with more of such performances, he will be a key player in the remaining matches.
“Being his first game of the second leg I think he did well. There was a lot of pressure for him but he handled all that well; he had good runs and he also had a few shots on target and in my assessment he did well. I will give him more chances to play and see how he can aid in our targets,” he said.
The coach also spoke of his preseason plans, as the season heads to a close, noting that a few players are definitely being looked at, with the target being to strengthen the team for a bigger challenge ahead.
“My plan is to strengthen the team for a bigger and better push next season. It has been a short season with congested matches, which has caused a lot of injuries but we want to finish as high as possible then bring in two or three players to beef up the team,” he added.
