KCB target top eight finish



Kenyan Premier League KCB have vowed to fight for a top eight place at the end of the 2013 season, days after naming their final squad.

The club, which named a final squad of 25 players, is confident that it will be up to the task since it boasts a mixture of experience and youthful players.

Team manager Josphat Okal revealed that they have set a top eight target as a first goal.

“We have faith in the squad that we presented to the Kenyan Premier League [KPL] and we are expecting to make a return into the Top 8,” he explained.

It was not, however, lost to him that there are other teams that are also determined to have their way, but he insisted that the squad will offer quality opposition in their matches.

“We hope that we will be successful in our mission though it will not be an easy task for any team,” he insisted.

KCB finished last season in the 10th position after encountering a bumpy run in the final matches of their campaign, thus dropping out of the top eight teams.

This result led to the firing of their coach James Omondi, with the experienced Abdalla Juma taking over at the helm this year. They start their campaign against Karuturi Sport on Sunday.
