Ulinzi name Military Games squad



After ending the 2012 Tusker Premier League season on a bad note, former top tier champions Ulinzi Stars will hope to redeem themselves in the African Military Games at the end of the year.

The continental showpiece will be held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast from December 1 to 18. Ulinzi, who suffered a 2-1 defeat to KCB on Saturday at Afraha Stadium to finish sixth on the log, are pooled alongside Gambia and Burkina Faso.

Coach Sammy Simiyu has named a strong-17 man squad that will report for duty on Wednesday 14 November. They will then shift their training base to Mombasa for a few weeks.

Harambee Stars duo Geoffrey Kokoyo and James Mulinge Ndetto, as well as leading striker Evans Amuoka are expected to lead the Kenya Defense Forces’ representatives at the two-and-a-half week tournament.

The Nakuru-based side qualified for the 2011 World Military Games in Brazil after finishing second in the 2010 event held in Uganda.

Goalkeepers: Jacktone Odhiambo and James Saruni.

Defenders: Kevin Ouma, Oliver Rutto, Josiah Okello, Mulinge James, Richard Chege, Geoffrey Kokoyo.

Midfielders: Stephen Ochollah, Stephen Waruru, Antony Nderitu, Lawrence Owino, Chester Okoyo, George Oyoo

Strikers: Ibrahim Ismail, Allan Muhati, Evans Amwoka. Coach: Sammy Simiyu, Assistants: Hussein Mohammed and Francis Onyiso.
