Homeboyz finalize squad



With about a month to go until the start of the 2013 season, Kakamega Homeboyz chairman Cleophas Shimanyula feels it is time to close their transfer dealings and begin fine-tuning their squad.

Homeboyz finished the 2012 season as the top side in the Western Zone of the Division One league, earning promotion to the Tusker Premier League.

The club have signed six players in preparation for life in Kenya’s premier division. According to Shimanyula, Homeboyz plan to finalise their squad this coming week to give their coach ample time to get his troops ready for what is expected to be a challenging year.

“We are almost done acquiring new players and hopefully by Friday next week (18 January), we should have a full squad ready for action,” said Shimanyula.

“We know that there is very little time between now and the time the league kicks off and therefore we do not intend to spend a lot of time looking for players at the expense of making proper preparations,” he added.

The club has already confirmed the acquisition of John Waw, Wellingtone Murwayi, Griffin Amatala, Elly Otuoma, Andrew Kulecho and striker Moses Mudavadi.
