Kahata set for SA trials



Thika United forward Francis Kahata will attend trials in South Africa with three Premier Soccer League sides in July next year.

This is the second time the player has landed an invitation to try with South African teams, the first time being in March 2010.

Confirming the call, Kahata indicated that he was excited at the opportunity and expressed optimism that he would succeed this time round.

“The South African league is much more developed than ours and getting an opportunity to play there will be a life-long dream,” said Kahata.

“I have been there before and even though I did not make it at first try, I have since learnt a lot and will put the skills I have learnt to use on second try.”

Earlier in the month, the player had attracted the interest of Tusker Premier League side Gor Mahia, but he turned the offer down – instead opting to stick with his parent side, while awaiting the trials.

At the time, Kahata indicated that the offer by Gor Mahia was not enticing, especially considering he was among the most experienced Premier League players, having done time with Thika for six years.

In the 2012 season, Kahata netted three goals for Thika, helping the side to a fifth-place finish, behind Tusker, Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards and Sofapaka.
