Bogere ready to fight for place
Thika United defender David Bogere has expressed his determination to fight for his place in the team as the new season approaches.
The 20-year-old Ugandan fullback joined the Kenyan Premier League side fresh from St Marys Kitende Secondary School in 2010 – after being scouted in the regional secondary school games.
He was a key figure in the Thika U19 team, helping them to lift the inaugural KPL U19 tournament.
However, after battling his way into the senior team, the youngster fell down the pecking order at the close of last season after blundering in the Sofapaka match which they lost 4-1.
The player admits that it was a difficult campaign for him last term, but says that he will do all he can to get back to his best.
“Well it was quite a very tough season for me, I made a few blunders towards the end of the season and especially the Thika vs Sofapaka game – it was a disaster…losing 1-4 at home… terrible. But that’s football,” Bogere told the club’s official website.
“This is a new season and I promise my coach and team-mates I won’t let them down, just watch me.”
The Brookside sponsored outfit will kick-off their 2013 KPL campaign on February 16 with a trip to Muhoroni Youth.
