Nyangweso Turns To Recruits For New Ulinzi Blood
NAIROBI, Kenya- SportPesa Premier League (SPL) title challengers Ulinzi Stars FC are keen on getting new blood in the June transfer window from fresh military school graduates.
Head Coach Benjamin Nyangweso who led the soldiers to the crown in 2010 has put the club in a strong position to challenge for the honours with his team lying third on 25 points, three adrift of leaders Tusker FC.
“We would like to strengthen the team and we will be busy to ensure we have a strong team. The coach and his team are doing their bit in looking at the players and knowing who they need,” club Vice-chairman, Major Joel Birgen told their official website.
Waruru to the rescue
Ulinzi organised a friendly between 21 recruits and the senior team on Thursday where the latter won 1-0 in an exercise aimed at identifying those who would join the SPL heavyweights for the second half of the campaign.
Top scorer Stephen Waruru notched his eighth league goal of the campaign to rescue a 1-1 draw against visiting Sony Sugar FC at their Afraha Stadium, Nakuru home turf in their round of 14 encounter on Sunday.
Aided by results elsewhere, notably the defeat of former leaders Gor Mahia FC at Sofapaka FC and the draw between champions Tusker FC and Kariobangi Sharks FC in Machakos, Nyangweso and his men find themselves only three adrift from the top.
