Homeboyz sign keeper Waw



Former Oserian FC goalkeeper John Waw has been signed by Kenyan Premier League newcomers Kakamega Homeboyz FC.

Waw, who has also represented Chemelil Sugar, has penned a one-year contract with the promoted outfit.

He is pleased the deal has been concluded and is looking forward to the upcoming season.

“It is true, I have signed a one-year deal at Homeboyz after we agreed, so I will be part of the attempts to maintain the team in the first tier for many seasons in the future,” said Waw.

“I am happy that the deal has been sealed since the focus now will be to concentrate on playing football and ensuring that we produce results on the pitch,” he added.

The signing will be a blow to former champions Mathare United who have been in hot pursuit of Waw’s signature after losing their first-choice keeper Martin Musalia to AFC Leopards in the current transfer window.

Waw was recruited together with Wellingtone Murwayi, Griffin Amatala, Elly Otuoma from Muhoroni Youth FC, Andrew Kulecho from Thika United and youngster Moses Mudavadi. Homeboyz earned their place in the top tier after emerging as Division One [Zone B] champions in the 2012 season alongside their Zone A counterparts Bandari FC.

Oserian FC and Rangers were relegated from the top-flight at the end of the 2012 campaign.
