Thika looking for goalkeeper
Tusker Premier League side Thika United is looking for another custodian to join its squad.
A statement in the club’s official website quoted head coach John Kamau saying he was looking for an experienced goalkeeper to provide cover for the young goalkeepers currently in the squad.
“Well, it’s now very evident to the technical bench that we need stability and confidence to be restored in our backline and an experienced keeper can be a starting point in line with our policy in Thika united, to develop the youth,” Kamau was quoted.
Kamau has now confirmed this, saying that the club will hold goalkeeper trials after the end of the top-tier season.
“Yes it is true that we are in search of a good goalkeeper and will therefore hold trials at the end of the season, probably from Monday 3 November,” he said.
“I don’t want to risk by signing a relatively inexperienced custodian and will hence be looking for a goalkeeper with top-level experience. I have already identified players to fill other positions so if I find the goalkeeper I want, the squad will be good to go for next season,” he added.
Joel Bataro, Lucas Indeche and John Njega are currently the goalkeepers in the Thika United squad.
Bataro and Indeche have been capped in the junior national teams while Njenga rose to the Thika senior team from the Under 19 side that won the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) Under 19 Tournament last year.
