Sony Sugar wield the axe



Kenyan Premier League side Sony Sugar will release six players from their books as they prepare to recruit some fresh names into their squad for the forthcoming season.

Confirming the news, the club’s chairperson, Chris Odero, said the team will be announcing the names of the players who will be leaving the outfit on Tuesday 11 December 2012.

“This is the time to start preparations for the new season. We want to improve our performance and we therefore have to strengthen our squad,” Odero said.

“We will therefore have to drop several players and sign some. I will personally release the list of the six players we are dropping tomorrow before noon,” he added.

Odero also hinted that the club will not be signing many players during the transfer window.

“We will only sign maybe three or four players this time. We want to maintain a squad of only 24 players during the 2013 season,” Odero said.

“We are not going for big names. We want young but talented players. We’ve already identified some and initiated talks and we hope to conclude the signings soon,” he added.

Sony finished 11th in the 2012 season with 38 points having played 30 matches.
