Chemelil keepers battle for top spot

Chemelil Sugar goalkeeper Fredrick Onyango has been cautioned that it will not be a walk in the park for him in the coming season of the Kenyan Premier League.

The Miller’ secretary Samuel Ndung’u admitted that the department [goalkeeping] would be very competitive especially after the arrival of youngster Japheth Wamunga.

Ndung’u advised all the custodians to keep for the place since no one was guaranteed of a place in the starting XI when the league kicks off.

“The young man [Wamunga] is very determined and has been very good in training over the pre-season period,” said Ndung’u.

“He also has a good size and was highly commended during the trials by the goalkeeping tactician that we had invited.”

Wamunga was signed by the first tier side during the current transfer window after training with them since the pre-season kicked off. He has been touted to excel for the side, especially with the goalkeeping role being declared up for grabs ahead of the season kick off.

Chemelil is planning to work on their defence as it cost them towards the end of last season with the departure of former keeper John Waw to Oserian Fc during the mid-season transfer window.

The Millers are set to launch their campaign for the title against Nairobi City Stars.
