Duo delighted with Tusker switch



It has been a busy few days at the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Tusker FC with a number of players coming in as the team prepares for the 2013 season while others were released.

Obadiah Ndege, who was dropped on Monday, got his release letter from the Ruaraka side while at the same time the club sealed the signing of Edwin Ombasa from relegated side Rangers FC and Jesse Were from Mathare United.

Both players confirmed they had signed with the Ruaraka side, with Ombasa saying he hopes to achieve his ambitions as a player with the team – while Were termed it a move in the right direction as he eyes continental exposure in 2013.

“This is a good move for me; I have signed a three-year deal with the club and I hope it helps me move to the next level as a player,” Ombasa said.

Were added: “I am happy with the move, I believe it is a positive one in my career especially since the team will be playing in the CAF Champions League next year. I will benefit more from the exposure.”

Were was the Mathare United top scorer in the 2012 TPL season. He scored 10 goals for the Slum Boys, helping the team finish in the top half of the league.

Ombasa, on the other hand, did not have a great season with Rangers as the team got relegated but he was a pillar in the team, scoring one of the league’s best goals, against Sony Sugar.
