Sofapaka targets title honours



Sofapaka FC are determined to bring back the glory days after finishing fourth in the Kenyan Premier League in 2012 – a spot below where they finished the term before.

Going into the 2013 season, the club’s president Elly Kalekwa says they will have installed a strategy in place to ensure that they regain the top tier title they relinquished at the end of the 2010 campaign.

“We have been performing quite well since we ascended to the premier league in 2008, even winning it in 2009. In the other years we have been ranked between third and fourth, which for the young team that we are is not a bad performance. However, we now want to get back to the top and the upcoming season holds the promise of bigger and better things,” said Kalekwa.

In order to meet this objective, Kalekwa says they will be boosting the squad with new players to cover the slots left by those who were released.

“The quality of players we have on the team will determine whether or not we can compete effectively and that is why we are committed to having the best join us,” he said.

Sofapaka will play Mathare United on the first day of the upcoming season on February 9.
