Chesamisi barred from regional games

17 July 2013, 18:03 Arap Yego

Chesamisi Boys High School Football team which won the Bungoma County football trophy last Thursday has been barred from representing the County in the regional championships slated for this week in West Pokot County.

Chesamisi defeated Sendera Secondary School 4-2  in a tightly contested match at Kaptama Ground in Mt Elgon last week, that had to go to post match penalties after the teams drew 1-1, will not participate in the games after fielding ineligible players.

Speaking to the media, Francis Juma the Bungoma County Secondary School Sports Association Chairman said some of the fielded players  who participated in the games have not been in the school for the last 90 days.

“An appeal was lodged with us considering two Chesamisi players; further scrutiny by our officials confirmed that the two players have been in the school for less than 3 months which is contrary to the rules,” said Juma.

Two teams, Kapsokwony Boys High (football) school and Kongit Secondary (volleyball), all from Mt Elgon, were banned from the championships for fielding ineligible players who were not students.

Juma said he was optimistic that the teams from the County will do exceptionally well in the coming matches at the regional levels.

“Bungoma County teams impressed in the tournament of the Term 2A games after 3 teams - Kimilili Boys, Friends School Kamusinga and Moi Girls Kamusinga won the trophies in Boys Handball, Hockey and Girls Handball respectively. We will do better in this Term 2B Games,” said the chairman.

Juma appealed to the County government and even well-wishers to set up a talent academy in the County noting that the schools in the area churn out stars each year, who go to waste.

Other teams that will represent Bungoma County in the The Nzoia regional games slated to take place from July 18 - 20 at Nasokol Girls and Chewoyet High School  in West Pokot County are Lugulu Girls, St Patrick’s Naitiri, and Our Lady of Mercy Chebukaka.

The region has seven Counties; apart from West Pokot, others are Bungoma, Busia, Kakamega, Trans- Nzoia, and Turkana.
