Chemelil back in the mix



Kenyan Premier League side Chemelil Sugar resumed camp on Thursday after taking a break after the conclusion of the 2012 season.

Club chairman Robert Nyakundi said the team aim to improve on their efforts last term, which culminated in a seventh-placed finish in the top tier. Nyakundi, however, has yet to finalise their plans regarding player recruitment.

“We have recalled the players to camp so that they can prepare for the upcoming season but I am yet to follow up on issues to do with the squad bolstering,” he said.

Nyakundi also revealed that head coach Mike Mururi has been given additional time off as his wife passed away a fortnight ago.

“The coach will be back but we have extended his time off duty after the loss of his wife but will resume after probably a week,” said Nyakundi.

Nyakundi added that they are not threatened by their neighbours SoNy Sugar’s interest in their top scorer Jared Obwoge Omwenga. Nyakundi is calm as the player is still under contract with the club.

Chemelil Sugar have a busy schedule ahead as they will be chasing after two cups after finishing inside the top eight places in the standings.
