TRANSFERS

Nakuru confirm the capture of Kabras centre

Nakuru RFC head coach Mitch Ocholla has confirmed that centre Kelvin Kichwa Omiyo has made a return to the club from rivals Kabras.
Omiyo’s return comes after just a season with the Kakamega based side. He joins Dominic Osino, Ivan Kirabo, Pius Ogena, Joseph Amalemba on the list of key players that have decamped the club.
The centre’s availability is a boost to the side that has lost the likes of Henry Ayah, Monate Akwei, Billy Kipchirchir and Kelvin Kioko. Nakuru boss believes that Omiyo together with the other senior players will make the side stronger.
“We have a comeback to the club for Kelvin Omiyo and together with likes of Isaiah Nyariki-last season’s captain, Philip Kwame, captain fantastic Edwin Makori and Geoffrey Ominde will help solidify some of the positions,” Mitch told Scrummage.
Omiyo began his club career at Nakuru RFC and was part of the team that won the Kenya Cup title in 2013. He also helped Kabras to a second place finish during his stay in Kakamega.
Meanwhile, Ocholla is happy with how the young guys performed during their first 15s match against Homeboyz in the Impala Floodlit tournament and has hinted at using them more in the 2018/19 season.
The tactician, however, said he is not ruling out more signing in the ongoing transfer window.
“We were missing eight guys who are regular starters (in the Impala Floodies) but the guys who were available were competitive. It means we will have depth on our side and moving on we will look to grow,” the former Strathmore Leos coach said.
“The transfer ends at the 3 November but we want to use the guys we have. We cannot dwell on the on the guys who have left so we will focus on what we have. A lot of young guys coming through and am happy as a coach with their performance, ” he added.
Nakuru have signed Duncan Abuyeka and Churchil Ooko.
