As they wrap-up their preparations ahead of the this year’s Airtel Sponsored Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association Term 2B Games in Mombasa, defending champions Gekemoni Boys have one thing in their mind-to retain the title.
Although it is always hard to retain a title, the Nyanza Province champions are ready to withstand the challenge of their tough opponents by defending the trophy they won last year in Nairobi.
Some of the key players that the Nyamira-based school will bank on include David Aura, Eric Onduso, Wilson Ocharo, Charles Salam, Peter Owour and Wycliffe Nyaoro.
Up for the task
Buoyed by optimism, Coach Rashid Omar says his current crop of players will have to dig deep to replicate their 2011 successes.
-We are well prepared and we are geared up for the challenges that lie ahead of us. We expect fierce competition but our target is to retain the trophy.
-Yes, I predict this year’s finals to be tough but as champions we will try not concentrate on our opponents and minimize our mistakes. Football is a game of chances and whoever utilizes his chances well, will definitely emerge the victors, Omar told futaa.com.
