Trio eye Western Stima job



The soon to be vacant head coach role at Kakamega side Western Stima is attracting interest from established tacticians, with three applicants vying for the position as the club prepares for the 2013 season in the Kenyan Premier League.

Coach Henry Omino’s contract will be running out at the end of the year and the club’s chairman Laban Jobita had earlier intimated that the Bukhungu outfit will not be renewing his and his assistant’s contract.

Jobita has confirmed that former AFC Leopards coach, Dutchman Jan Koops, ex-Uganda international and Under-20 trainer Paul Nkata and Agrochemicals FC boss Leonard Saleh have applied for the job, for which interviews will be held in Kakamega on Tuesday 11 December.

“The coaching role, which will soon be vacant after we decided against renewing Omino’s contract, has been applied for by three good coaches. Koops, Saleh and Nkata, a former Ugandan international, have all shown interest as we look to build a better and stronger team in 2013,” said Jobita.

“All the three will be subjected to interviews in Kakamega on Tuesday next week at a venue to be communicated and I hope we will be able to pick the best of them according to our short and long-term needs.”

Omino has been the coach of Western Stima for the past three seasons after taking over from Fred Serenge. His biggest highlight was steering the team to the Top 8 Cup final in 2011.
