Homeboyz ready to rumble



Kakamega Homeboyz have promised to unsettle the big boys when they arrive in the Tusker Premier League next season.

The Kakamega based outfit has been promoted to the top flight and will face off with the likes of AFC Leopards and home town rivals Western Stima in 2013.

They carry an impressive record into the elite division, having lost only once all season in the second tier. Club chairman Cleophas Shimanyula is confident the club will make an impact next year.

“I am happy and proud to have my team in the Premier League next season,” said Shimanyula.

“It has been a herculean effort all across the board, from the players to the coaching staff to our families and even supporters who have been brilliant. We as a club are looking forward to taking part in the league and are preparing in advance for it.”

“Next year, we will be ready to take on the big boys and I am sure we will show the country just how good we are. Our brand of football is unmatched and I am sure with it, we can challenge for the title at the end of the season. We can’t wait for the time to come,” he said.

As clubs climb the ladder, they are usually tempted to chop and change their squad, but Shimanyula insists they will keep the majority of players who helped them up.

“We will not change the team much, why should we? “This one is a winning formula and I am sure it can work wonders. Of course, we will add a few experienced players who have been in the top flight before to strengthen us, but they will have to fit our style. We will not just bring in anybody, but people who will improve the quality we have,” he maintained.

Homeboyz will use the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega next season, which has housed Western Stima for the last couple of years.
