Omollo happy with Sony blend

Sony Sugar coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo is settling well in the job since he joined from relegated Naivasha side Oserian FC at the end of the 2012 Kenyan Premier League season.

The coach has already made a number of signings since taking over from Zedekiah Otieno, with John Keo, Francis Ouma and Amon Muchiri being among the big names enlisted for the club in the 2013 campaign.

With the signings made, the former Kenya international says he is looking for a good blend of youthful and seasoned players and shared that the team needs good guidance from senior players as they enter the coming term.

“All the signings made are in search for both experience and a good blend of players – the seasoned players, well established names and the youthful ones. As a person who has been in this league both as a player and a coach I know these things are very vital in the competition,” said Omollo.

“I do not think we have made any small signings. Players like Keo, Oush and Muchiri are well established big names and I believe they will provide the leadership required at this level. Meki, on the other hand, is youthful and will bolster the team with speed and good strength. We are still eyeing a number of players which should be through in the near future,” he added.

Sony Sugar finished 11th in the standings last year.
