Barely a week after
confirming the departure of head Coach Mike Amenga (to
Bidco United), Kibera Celtic have appointed former KCB assistant Leonard
Odipo as his replacement.
Confirming Odipo’s entry, Celtic’s Director Bernard Njira
said that they needed to act swiftly in order to avert any lulls in training that
would have occurred in the absence of a coach to guide the team in pre-season
-We have offered him (Odipo) a one-year contract and he took
up charge yesterday (Wednesday 9 January 2013). He has embarked on
player-recruitment exercise and for the following one week, he shall be
overseeing trials at our Woodley grounds, in Kibera, Njira told Futaa.com.
Njira also took time to invite any players who would like to
play in the top-flight to attend the trials, which conclude of Friday 18.
-We call on individuals who feel they can play in the Division
One to attend the trials.
Amidst financial strife, Celtic still managed a 14th-place
finish in the Eastern Zone of the Division One league.
