Blak Blad’s Arcadius Khwesa speaks on brilliant scoring run in Kenya Cup


For the last few seasons, Arcadius Khwesa has proved to be a crucial finisher in both the shorter and longer versions of the game.

The dreadlocked winger has in the last two seasons finished as Blak Blad top try scorer. He currently has 25 tries in close to 30 appearances in Kenya Cup. In 2018/19 season, the former Kakamega School winger bagged 11 tries in the Kenya Cup season to finish third on the scorers’ list behind Philip Wokorach and Collins Injera who had 23 and 21 tries respectively.

In 2019/20 season, the speedster dotted 14 tries, three more than what he got in the previous season. Asked about his impressive scoring run, the winger was quick to credit his teammates for pushing him to work on his finishing in training.

“The lads are always pushing me hard during training to make runs and score. It just translates it into a game situation,” Khwesa told Scrummage.

In the 2018/19 season, Blad had to wait till the last day to confirm their Kenya Cup stay while last season they looked like they were set for relegation but a fine run in 2020 saw them turn around their fortunes.

Commenting on their impressive run in 2020 which saw them win the four of their final seven matches to finish eighth on the log, Khwesa said coaches worked hard while fans support was key in changing their fortunes.

“The coaches always told us that we are the best,  they also worked hard on and off the pitch to better the team. The support from our loyal fans was also a driving force,” he added.

With the current COVID-19 pandemic which has interrupted training, Khwesa is doing home workouts and roadwork to stay fit.

“Nothing much, just home workouts and sometimes roadwork just to keep fit.  It’s a bit hard for the skill sessions since most grounds are under lockdown,” he revealed.

The winger is aiming to get better each day to be ready for bigger challenges such as National Team assignments.

“Just improve my game if opportunities come knocking I’ll be ready to take on the challenge,” he concluded.
