Sofapaka kick off against Thika



Kenya Power Charity Cup champions Sofapaka will be looking forward to make a positive start in the 2013 Kenyan Premier League [KPL] when they host Thika United, on Sunday afternoon, at City Stadium.

The 2009 KPL Champions have been busy in the off-season, bringing in a total number of 11 players.

They include Hillary Echesa, Titus Mulama, Enoch Agwanda, Koko Manopi, Collins Kisuya, Charles Ouma, Obadiah Tarumbwa, Patrick Kagogo, Julius Senoga, Salim Abdalla and Kennedy Oduor.

Thika managed to recruit Sammy Meja, Mwinyi Kibwana, Antony Gichio, Ezekiel Odera, Zamu Adisa, Charles Bruno and David Kinga’tua. The Milkmen, who lost their talisman Kepha Aswani to Oman outfit Al Nasir in the January transfer window, will begin the post-Aswani era looking for victory.

However, it will not be an easy ride for the visitors as Batoto Ba Mungu are oozing with confidence after clinching the inaugural Charity Cup.

Last term, Thika beat Sofapaka 1-0 in the first leg before suffering a 4-1 demolition in the return leg.
