Tusker shortlist 15 hopefuls
Tusker FC have identified 15 promising players after recently holding trials over 10 days at their home ground, Ruaraka Sports Club.
Confirming the news, the club’s assistant coach George Maina says the 15 men will face further assessments when the team resumes training on Tuesday.
“Many players turned up for the trials and we shortlisted 15 of them. The head coach Robert Matano will have a chance of checking them further when the team resumes training tomorrow. He comes back from Uganda this evening,” Maina said.
“We will only select several, only the best, to join our team. We want to strengthen the team and start preparations as soon as possible. The coming season will be tougher and we also have continental games to play, so the sooner we get the team together the better for us.”
Maina added that the Tusker Premier League champions are also tracking players from other clubs, but declined to mention names.
“Of course we are currently eyeing several players from other clubs but I cannot mention them. The head coach will do that at the right time but we hope to have a much stronger team than last season,” said Maina.
Tusker FC retained the top-tier title this season with 60 points having played 30 matches.
