Bandari bolster squad options



Newly promoted Kenyan Premier League side Bandari have bolstered their ranks by signing a raft of players in the off-season.

The dockers, who claimed the 2012 Division One League title, have brought in midfielder Ali Bai from Western Stima, Mike Simiyu from Sony Sugar, Athman Buki from Mathare United and former Thika United defender Morris Dukuly.

The duo of Abdulatif Omar (Sofapaka) and Wilson Oburu (Sony Sugar) also re-joined Bandari after signing one and two-year deals respectively.

Bandari secretary Ben Oloo is confident the new players will add value to the side.

“We have a strong team and for continuity reasons we have just signed thirteen players ahead of the new season,” said Oloo.

“I am happy the likes of Bai and Simiyu have agreed to join us. Most of the recruits have been playing in the top-flight league. They are experienced players and I am confident they will play a vital role in the team next season.”

The club’s additional signings include Aloys Mangi (Western Stima), Victor Majid (Karuturi Sports), Buki Athman (Mathare United), Islam Swaleh, Tolle Hamisi and Abdalla Ahmed (all Coast United), Roosevelt Blaty and Khamis Abud Omar (both Admiral).

The dockers are scheduled to start training on Thursday under the watchful eye of newly appointed assistant coach Twahir Muhiddin.
