Stima coach ready for season start



As the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) nears kickoff, Kakamega based side Western Stima finished their preparations in fine style with a win in the friendly match against Rush FC on Thursday at the Bukhungu Stadium.

The Kenya Power sponsored side walloped their Division One counterparts 3-0 courtesy of goals from Hesbon Ogada on 21 minutes and newly signed midfielder Francis Ocholla and Job Omuse in the 78th and 87th minutes respectively.

In light of the emphatic win, the Western Stima coach Francis Baraza said the performance instills confidence in him and the team in general as they prepare for their first match of the season, away to Muhoroni Youth on Sunday 24 February.

The coach lauded both teams for an impressive show in a game he said was very open with many chances created.

“The game was a very entertaining one; an open game with lots of good chances created by both sides and it makes me confident to have sealed a comfortable win. We are going into a league game in a few days and the confidence is also very good for the players. I look forward to a good game against Muhoroni Youth”, he said.
