KCB coach assesses trialists



Kenyan Premier League side KCB have been holding trials with a view to signing eight players for the 2013 season.

The club’s head coach Juma Abdallah confirmed they are assessing a number of hopefuls until January 5.

“We want to add eight quality players; three defenders, two midfielders, two strikers and a goalkeeper, in our squad and we’ve been holding trials from Wednesday. The trials conclude on Saturday and I hope to have identified the players by then,” Abdalla said.

“Many players turned out for the trials on day one and I dropped ten on the same day. I have assessed the remaining during today’s session and will also do so during the last session and come out with final list of the successful players,” he added.

Abdalla guided Bidco United to a second-placed finish in the Division One Zone A league with 71 points from 37 matches, and was later appointed KCB trainer after the club parted ways with James ‘Odijo’ Omondi.

KCB finished tenth in the 2012 season with 30 points, and Abdalla is optimistic the team will do better in the upcoming campaign.

“I’ve assessed the team and the spirit is fine. We hope to complete the signings in good time and embark on serious preparations. I know we will do better than last season,” concluded Abdallah.
