Thika gear up for next season



Kenyan Premier League side Thika United will resume training next week Friday ahead of the new campaign.

Thika have made quite a few signings in the off-season and according to coach John Kamau, the fresh recruits will be unveiled on the same day during a lunch break.

Former Gor Mahia and KCB striker Ezekiel Odera and Bidco United goalkeeper Adisa Zamu have been brought on board, as have promising trio Sammy Mejja (Kakamega High), Mwinyi Kibwana (Kilifi Mixed) and Josiah Gichu (Ofafa Jericho), who impressed at this year’s Airtel Rising Stars Secondary Schools Games.

“Personally, I have resumed work but for the players, we will meet on Friday over lunch,” said Kamau.

“First, I want to prepare them both mentally and psychologically. That is by discussing and sharing the festivities experiences. We will also use the event to welcome our new signings. I want the old players to know them and vice versa before we get back to business.”

“All the same, intensive training will start on Monday. I have a strong team and we hope to do much better than we did in 2012,” concluded Kamau.

Thika finished fifth on the table in the just concluded season after garnering 46 points from 30 games.
