Homeboyz sign striker Chinjili



Kenyan Premier League side Kakamega Homeboyz have signed former AFC Leopards and Western Stima striker Francis Chinjili.

Chinjili has been training with the team for the past week and in that time he has impressed the club’s head coach Fred Serenge, who has now offered him a two-year contract.

“Chinjili is a very experienced player and in the days that he has been training with us, he has shown that he is the kind of player we need on our team for us to impress in the season. That is why we have decided to give him a two-year contract,” said Serenge.

Club chairman Cleophas Shimanyula had previously announced that they would conclude their player recruitment by January 18.

Serenge, however, said the top tier newcomers relaxed their stance in the case of Chinjili.

“We wound down on player recruitment a few days ago, but the likes of Chinjili have been trying with us for a while and all we have done now is confirm that we have handed him a contract,” said Serenge.

Chinjili becomes the 13th off-season signing for Homeboyz following the acquisition of John Waw, Wellingtone Murwayi, Griffin Amatala, Elly Otuoma, Paul Odhiambo, George Amayo, Samuel Mwangi, David Mwanzi, Bernard Owino, Gregory Nyapala, Andrew Kulecho and striker Moses Mudavadi.
