Players celebrate the winning goal in the game against Sony Sugar on Wednesday 27th March, 2019
Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has admitted the 2018/19 campaign was a season of unachieved targets but assured of a better plan ahead of the 2019/20 season, with a promise of strengthening the team in the areas of weakness.
Nyangweso, who took over in midseason from Dunstan Nyaudo, noted that the biggest impediment to achieving team targets was the congestion of matches, which ate into training time, translating to limited time dedicated to correcting mistakes seen in matches.
“It was hard in the season with the congestion of matches and we can definitely look to the future with hope. We had really limited time to train and rectify our mistakes and of course in the premier league there are no easy matches,” he said.
With the team having taken a break until the start of July, the coach and his technical team will be busy trying to identify players to slot into the team. Nyangweso has revealed the team will have about three new players, in addition to three set to rejoin the team after return from military training.
Three new players
“We are going to take a deeper look into the areas of weakness, and after that we will reinforce. We are looking at the possibility of having two or three new players. We have three who are sure to join the team after coming from training so I am confident all will go well,” he added.
Masita Masuta, who scored seven goals in the 2018 season is among the players in training along with Clinton Omondi, signed from Sony Sugar.
Former Ulinzi Stars U20 defender Quintine Indeche, former Sofapaka defender Edmond Kwanya and former Sofapaka and Police FC goalkeeper Francis Atwoli are the others in training.
