Bandari shift base from Mombasa to Nairobi

11 January 2016, 14:12

Nairobi - Bandari will be in the capital city from Monday as preparations begin in earnest for their CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round fixture next month.

The Mombasa-based side are due to play against St Lupopo of the Democratic Republic of Congo in February.

Having had their Mbaraki Sports Club ground closed down for renovations after it failed to meet CAF's approval, Bandari will use the Nyayo National Stadium as their home ground.

The coastal club will now also conduct their training sessions in Nairobi in order to acclimatise to the conditions.

"Our home ground will not be able to host the CAF Confederations Cup because the pitch has not been approved by CAF. In fact, it has been shut down temporarily for renovations," club spokesman Ernest Mbalanya told the KPL website.

"The coach (Twahir Muhiddin) also suggested that the team travel to Nairobi where the altitude is higher than Mombasa so that the players won't struggle much during the continental showdown and the management agreed that it was a valid suggestion," he added

This will be the club's first foray into continental competition.

Confederation Cup squad: Islam Omar Islam, Karani Makokha Meshack, Oluoch Alfred Ochieng, Owira John Otieno, Opiyo George Abege, Mudde Musa, Shariff Mohamed, Khamis Tole Seif, Menza Shaban Kenga, Alfred Maningi Opiyo, Wilson Oduor Obungu, Juma Masud Choka, Abdullatif Omar Said, Anthony Kimani Njenga, Joseph Okoth Ochuka, Atsali Humphrey Okoti, Felly Mulumba Tshiyoyo, King'atua David, Almasi Farid Juma Mohamed, Victor Reuben Ndinya,Danny Seerunkuma, Bernard Man'goli, Edwin Wafula.
