Thika United sign young trio



Kenyan Premier League side Thika United have signed three young players ahead of the 2013 season.

The trio of Sammy Mejja (Kakamega High), Josiah Gichu (Jericho High) and Mwinyi Kibwana (Kilifi Mixed) have all signed four-year deals with the club.

Coach John Kamau confirmed the three youngsters have been recruited. However, he vowed not to rush the promising talents into top flight action, insisting they will be afford time to develop both physically and mentally.

“Our trend of signing promising players from schools continues. We have given them four-year deals each but in a real sense it’s a two year deal,” said Kamau.

“Yes, they will be on the payroll but as far as I am concerned, the first two years it will be a development period and there after we will consider giving them a KPL match,” explained Kamau.

“Gichu and Kibwana are attacking midfielders while Mejja is a defender. All of them are talented and promising players. I believe they will become great stars in the future. I will give them time to grow both physically and mentally.”

The newcomers have joined the Brookside-sponsored outfit barely four days after the club parted ways with four of their players in Haji Mwachoki, Evans Oluteyo, John Njenga and Andrew Kulecho.
