Unless they make a move to a different club, Kevin Kimani and Anthony Emeka ,former Mathare United player  and JMJ Academy players respectively will spend the next season with Belgian third tier side Bocholter (Bocholt) VV.

This comes after the side missed out on promotion to the second tier during the final stretch of the 19-team league.


Heading to the final game of the season on Sunday 5 May 2013, Bocholt is five points off the pace set by Excelsior Virton who are confirmed as promoted.

Off 35 games, Excelsior Virton sits top of the 19-team group B with 76 points while Bocholt is second with 71 points with both having played 35 games each.

Eight games

Ahead of the season finale, Kimani, the 2011 Midfielder and Player of the Year at the close of the KPL, has picked up eight games for Bocholt, his last being on 21 April during a shocking 6-1 home beating by Patro Eisden.

Emeka, a defender who just like Kimani joined Bolchot from the JMJ Academy, has featured in four games.
