Homeboyz cull their ranks



After axing eight of their players last month, newly promoted Kenyan Premier League side Kakamega Homeboyz are expected to drop 20 more players this week as the team continues to restructure for the 2013 season.

In December, former AFC Leopards striker Gideon Asudzi and former Western Stima defender Wycliffe Anyangu were among the eight dropped players.

The others are Kevin Shikokoti, Dennis Nate, Alloys Ondiek, Boniface Mwaka, Hawkins Ommami and Shakil Devance.

Homeboyz are scheduled to take on Shinyalu Combined in a friendly match on Monday at Sigalagala Polytechnic Groundsas part of their preparations for the coming campaign. And according to coach Fred Serenge the game will decide the fate of 10 players at the club.

“We are in a restructuring process. We want to come up with a list of 30 players and that means that 20 of them must leave the club before the end of the week,” said Serenge.

“Today’s friendly match against Shinyalu will give us the direction as 10 players will be released after the match and then the other batch will follow suit before Friday. It is a big number and we must take risks by trimming it down – we want a manageable squad.

“However, I am happy with the general response of the players since we resumed training last week. The camp is in high spirits and I hope that we will maintain the tempo until the league kicks off.”

Homeboyz, who qualified for the top-flight league after winning the Division One [Western Zone] League title last term, have already acquired the services of former Thika United striker Andrew Kulecho, while they are reportedly closing in on Muhoroni Youth’s Elly Otuomwa.
