Ulinzi set sights on reclaiming title



Ulinzi Stars assistant coach Sammy Simiyu is confident his side will reclaim the Kenyan Premier League title this season.

The Soldiers, who won the 2010 KPL title, finished sixth last term after garnering 46 points, but with the arrival of coach Salim Ali and their good pre-season preparations, the former Kenyan international hopes for a better season.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Simiyu said he is proud of Ali’s in-put.

“The players are responding very well to training in week two. The coach has instilled a lot of positives into the team and everyone is looking forward to the new season,” he said.

“We have faith in the players that we have selected and we hope they are going to play well so that we recapture the league title we lost in 2011.”

His sentiments were echoed by the newly appointed captain Evans Amwoka.

“He is a coach who has also been a player and he is now a qualified coach. His standards of training are high and if we can keep with that even in game situation, I believe the returns will be positive,” he added.

Ahead of the 2013 season, the Nakuru-based outfit has bolstered its squad by signing former Mathare United link-man Elvis Nandwa and elevating the quartet of Oliver Nandwa, Salim Mohammed, Fred Chitai and Sylus Shitote from military departments.

Ulinzi will open their KPL campaign on Wednesday 20 February with an away clash against Gor Mahia.
