Shimonyo hungry for goals
Western Stima midfielder Fred Shimonyo is hoping that he can boost his goal tally by the end of the season.
The hard-man is the club’s third top scorer in the current Tusker Premier League campaign, with three goals to his name, just behind Wesley Kemboi and Alloys Mangi.
His last goal for Stima was in August in the 3-0 win over Karuturi Sport. With Stima chasing a top-eight finish, Shimonyo aims to net a few more goals to help his team realise their ambitions.
“I hope that I can add a few more goals to my tally. It would be nice if I can do so. This year, I have scored thrice, although I was hoping that I could score some more goals. We have struggled for goals in the league this year, as our forwards have not scored that often. So it is good to help out.”
“In the team, a few other people have helped out with the burden and that is good for us. Hopefully me, as well as others, can add a few goals to our tally and help us improve as a team and in our finish to the season.”
Meanwhile, Kemboi has recently risen to prominence following his call-up to the Harambee Stars. He featured for most of the 2-1 friendly loss to South Africa on Tuesday, with Shimonyo praising his efforts against Bafana Bafana.
“Kemboi is a good striker and a solid one for Western Stima. He works hard and plays well for the team and as well, he can score goals. Against Bafana Bafana he did well and you could not see that he is a new striker in the team. He did ever so well and gave their defence many problems.”
“He played a part in our goal and looked good. I am happy for him. Hopefully he can continue with his display in the national team and if given another chance, I am sure he will do very well,” Shimonyo concluded.
Stima next visit Thika United in a Tusker Premier League clash on Sunday.
