Nondies set for kicking competition in honour of former President

Kenya cup side Nondies RFC is set to host the Roy Fear Kicking competition on the 17th of June.This is a contest of the boot that brings together the best kickers of Nondies RFC to fight it out for the bragging rights of the most accurate foot.
Defending Roy fear cup champion Charles Kanyi fondly referred to as “Akaranga” who won the last edition in 2013 is expecting stiff competition in this year’s edition.
Akaranga says Nondies captain Fielden Sinei,Uganda cranes international James Odong and Kenya 15s flyhalf Biko Adema will pose a great threat to his ambition of defending the title.
“I don’t have a good reason to miss out on this year’s Roy Fear Cup. I don’t know if I can win again. I haven’t kicked in a long time. Plus, it depends on who competes. Biko, Sinei and James Odongo are all really good kickers who have kicked well throughout the season,” Akaranga told the Nondies official portal.
Roy Fear was a member from the early days of Nondies. He passed away in October 1959 and a Kicking Cup was put forward in his name in 1962.
The inaugural Roy Fear Cup was won by David Opie.
Roy Fear served as the President of Nondies in 1946 and 1954. He also served as Honorary Secretary from 1932 to 1947.
He was also the Rugby Football Union of Kenya Honorary Secretary from 1939 to 1947, President of the RFUK from 1949 to 1953 and most notably the first President of the Rugby Football Union of East Africa in 1953.
