Ouma aims to repay voting fans



After the month long voting by fans to see their teams take part in the inaugural Kenya Power Charity Cup competition, it emerged that Gor Mahia, Western Stima, Sofapaka and Mathare United were the four top teams given the green light to take part.

The one-day tournament will be held at the Moi International Sports Centre (MISC) Kasarani on Saturday and Sofapaka FC head coach David Ouma hopes to be the first ever winner in the competition.

Ouma believes a win by his team will be the perfect gift to the club’s loyal fans who voted in the team in.

“I would like to thank all the fans and lovers of the club who took their time and resources to vote for Sofapaka to participate in the tournament. It could all have amounted to nothing without their support and it is only normal that on behalf of the players I appreciate their support,” he said.

“Giving our appreciation is not all because I assume by them taking part, they want us to go out there and give a good display and eventually come out tops. That is what I am aiming at; it will be nice for us to be the first club to win it and a good way to repay the fans’ trust.”

The Nairobi side was paired to take on Western Stima as Gor Mahia takes on Mathare United. The overall winner will take home $10 000 while the runners up will bag $6 000.

The other two teams will walk home with a consolation prize of $2 000 each.
