Omino happy with season



Western Stima coach Henry Omino has been reflecting on the just concluded Tusker Premier League season, in which he had targeted a top-five finish after 30 matches but ended up finishing tenth in the 16-team log.

Omino admits the team started season well but started dipping in form along the way, though he is still able to pick a few positives from the campaign.

The fact that the team managed to break its 38-point mark since winning promotion to the Kenyan top flight in 2007 is a matter for the coach to look up to, and he says he hopes the players will stick together so that next season they can make further progress.

The coach was also ecstatic that for the first time a player from the team managed to make it to the national team and seal a full debut while two others also got nominated for the upcoming KPL Awards.

“We started the season well but somehow fatigue set in towards the end of the season and we started dropping points inexplicably thus falling outside our targeted region but that is not all we take from the season. At least we managed to beat our record tally of 38 points,” Omino said.

“We also had a player make a full debut in the national team which was good, then just recently two of our players got nominated in different categories for the KPL Awards so we have many things to look out for with pride. I just hope the players stick together so we can build up from there in the coming season,” he concluded.
