Miheso off to SuperSport for trials



Kenyan international attacking midfielder Clifton Miheso left the country on Tuesday afternoon to attend trials with South African Premier Soccer League side SuperSport United.

Miheso, who joined Thika in 2011 at the age of 17 from Kakamega High, has been a key figure at the Brookside-sponsored outfit, leading the youth team to the inaugural Under-19 Kenyan Premier League title.

Thika coach John Kamau is hopeful the youngster earns a contract with Matsatsantsa, the reigning Nedbank Cup champions.

“I am very happy for Miheso, I’ve seen him grow and develop into the player that you now see and am glad to have played part in his development,” Kamau told Thika’s official website.

“My prayer is that he makes it out there, I believe he can,” added Kamau.

Miheso made his national team debut in a barren draw against Malawi during a World Cup qualifying clash at the Moi International Sports Centre-Kasarani last year.

He impressed in the Harambee Stars’ march to the 2012 CECAFA Senior Challenge final, where they lost 2-1 to hosts Uganda. The left-footed winger scored twice to double his international tally.

At club level, Miheso netted four times last term as Thika finished fifth on the top tier table with 46 points out of 30 games.
