Odhiambo secures Homeboyz move
Paul Odhiambo, formerly of relegated Kenyan Premier League (TPL) side Rangers FC has finally completed his much protracted move to newly promoted league side Kakamega Homeboyz FC ahead of the 2013 season.
The striker, who spent just six months at the Nairobi team after an unsuccessful first six months at Oserian FC, was handed a one year deal on Monday 21 January when he completed a trail stint with the Kakamega side.
Speaking after landing the deal, the striker could not hide his joy at the prospect of featuring in the top flight for another season, and admitted that he hopes the move will make him a better player.
“Things are fine now; the trials were not easy but I have now sealed the move and effective Monday 21st, I am a Kakamega Homeboyz player. I was handed a one year deal at the completion of trials and I am happy with the move,” he said.
“This is a young but great team; we all saw that from the way they played in the last two seasons and I feel I will be part of a great future with the club. A number of big players have been signed here and I have been welcomed well. I can’t wait for the season to kick off already.”
Odhiambo scored four goals in the 2012 season as both teams he played for in the year suffered relegation. He is among six new players confirmed by the team this week.
