Known for bringing to the fore some relatively young and unknown players, Nzoia Sugar Football Club will this season serve Kenyan Premier League (KPL) fans with a triple delight as confirmed by coach Bernard Mwalala.


Despite still having one of the three new acquisitions in school, Mwalala hopes to involve them sparingly given their recent showing against Gor Mahia in a friendly match in Nakuru.

''I gave my young players a chance and I must admit they did perform very well. Teka and Wafula are from school while Otieno is in form three but they showed maturity in the matches they played,'' comments Mwalala. 

The three are former Kakamega High School player Tom Teka, Dennis Wafula just recently completed his studies at Misikhu Secondary School while Patrick Otieno is still a student at Bukembe Friends School. Despite going down 2-0 to Gor, the coach noted a few positives from the youngsters.

''At Nzoia we give young players a chance and I am glad they showed that they can compete with the very best, they were fearless against Gor Mahia and the other teams we played and I believe with more training and more matches they can only get better,'' he adds.

Duo Loss

Nzoia Sugar lost key players Masita Masuta to Ulinzi Stars and Lawrence Juma to Gor Mahia and can really do with superb replacements to the losses incurred in the ongoing transfer period.
