Former Homeboyz prop Elvis Wekesea has been named in Western Bulls starting squad that will play newbies and neighbors MMUST in the KRU Championship clash set for MMUST Grounds on Saturday 17 November.
The Kakamega Derby will see the prop who is at the club for the second stint start alongside Bretty Khamadi and Willis Mwimano. Gilbert Onindo and Keith Njunukha are in the second row while Wangare Steve, skipper Treasure Odundo and Nelly Mwati are in the backrow.
New signing Dan Chebui from Bungoma Sharks has been handed the halfback duties together with Powell Odongo. Dennis Lukase and Eliab Barasa will partner in the midfield as Frank Ochieng, Suleiman Odongo and assistant skipper Allan Kasiti complete the first 15.
The bench has Derrick Mambili and Brum Mukhoyi who have joined the side from South Coast and Webuye respectively. Silas Ambehi is ready for action after a lengthy layoff following an injury.
Echulusi missed the Kenya Cup slot after a loss to Mean Machine and will be hoping to beat last season performance. The side will also be eager to stop MMUST and claim the bragging rights.
