Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has more options to explore after getting three more players added to his squad, with the arrivals of defender Quintine Indeche, midfielder Clinton Omondi and striker Masita Masuta.
The three fresh graduates from the Recruits Training School in Eldoret, trained with the team on Tuesday and were also present in the Wednesday morning session. In his assessment, Nyangweso termed them very good players as he explores means of incorporating them in his plans for the season.
With injuries creeping in after just three matches in the season, the coach believes the trio will fit in really well.
“The three have started training; we had our second session together today and I have to say they are very good players. At such a time when we are losing players to injury, I am sure their availability comes very handy,” he said.
The coach will however not employ them immediately. He will be trying as much as possible to preserve them, while also trying to get them to gel in the team, with the players having come straight from military training.
“I however can’t rush them back to action, having just come from military training. The kind of training they get at RTS and what they learn as footballers are two different things; while they will still be fit from the military training, they may get long term injuries if rushed to action here.
“So we are very careful how we use them but once they establish a good rhythm with the rest of the team, they will be incorporated as soon as possible,” he added.
Omondi, popularly known as Aguero, is an immediate former Sony Sugar player while Masita Masuta played for Ulinzi Stars in 2018, before leaving for military training. He scored seven goals in the season. Indeche, on the other hand, was a member of the Ulinzi Stars U20 side that won the 2016 April KPL U20 title.
In the senior team, Indeche joins a number of his team mates at the U20 side, including Ibrahim Shambi, Moses Mwangi and Swaleh Ali.
