Homeboyz excited ahead of opener
For a club newly promoted to the top flight, the biggest wish is to kick off the new season on a winning note.
That can be said for the Kakamega Homeboyz who are only a day away from their first Premier League match as a club.
Homeboyz, who are based in Kakamega town in Kenya’s western region, will host Karuturi Sport on Sunday 24 February 2013 at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega town.
“We are excited to be at this point and can’t wait to kick off. As a club our vision was to compete with the best in the business and we are now here,” club chair Cleophas Shimanyula said.
“The players and staff are all counting down the hours. We play Karuturi here and thank God that we play our first match at home and in-front of our fans. “Hopefully, we can pick up a win to push us on our way.”
To start the new season, the club has introduced replica jerseys which went on sale on Friday.
“The replica jerseys are on sale. They will go on sale in Kakamega only then we will slowly roll out. “For the pricing, we have settled for Ksh1500. We hope that the fans will support our initiative and furthermore come out in numbers over the weekend. Their support is chief for us and we hope that we can repay their faith in us,” he said.
