Ulinzi to camp in Nanyuki



Ulinzi Stars are set to intensify their preparations by holding a two-week camp ahead of the 2013 Tusker Premier League season.

Stars will start training in Nanyuki on Tuesday, with team manager Captain Joe Birgen revealing they aim to line up some friendlies over the coming fortnight.

He feels the players’ fitness will benefit greatly from the exercise due to the increased altitude they will be competing at.

“We are heading to Nanyuki next week for camp and some friendly matches,” Birgen said.

“Primarily, we are searching for fitness and focus. On the other hand, the new coach will need time to sit down with the boys and work his magic. Mainly though we are looking out for the high altitude training to help us on. By the time the two weeks are up, I expect that we will be ready for action.”

“For sure we will play some friendly matches. “We have been looking at some sides like Bidco United of the division one and others that we are yet to decide on. Practice can only be confirmed by on the pitch action and friendlies give you that. They are a must,” he added.

Stars have already finalised their squad for the upcoming campaign.
