Chinjili training with Homeboyz

Former AFC Leopards and Western Stima striker Francis Chinjili is training with newly promoted side Kakamega Homeboyz.

The veteran, who has also featured for the Harambee Stars, is a free agent having left Stima towards the close of last season.

Since then, he has been to Vietnam to try his luck, albeit unsuccessfully and is now back home.

Having gotten an opportunity to train with Homeboyz, Chinjili is hoping to land another stint at a top flight club and a chance to hit the heights once again in the Tusker Premier League.

“I am indeed training with Homeboyz,” confirmed Chinjili.

“I left Stima towards the end of last season after I left the country for Vietnam to try at a certain club. “It did not really work out for me there so after I came back home, we parted ways with Stima mutually. Since I am now a free agent, I jumped at the opportunity to train with Homeboyz which is so far looking good.

“I hope that it works out as I am really looking forward to playing in the Premier League once again.”

As for Homeboyz’s prospects for the new season, Chinjili believes they will be a force to be reckoned with come the start of the campaign.

“I have been here for a number of days and the vibe is really good. The club is really looking forward to the new season They are confident they will make an impression. Even their fans are happy to be in the Premier League and the whole town is talking about it.”

“They will do well if they continue in the way they are, preparing well and signing the right players. I hope to be a part of them,” he added.

Chinjili’s former teammate Bryan Masiolo is also training with Homeboyz.
