Tusker depart for training camp
29 January 2016, 12:32
Nairobi - Ten-time Kenyan champions Tusker left Nairobi on Thursday morning for a
week long training camp in Uganda ahead of the new season, which starts
in two weeks.
According to media officer Diana Yonah they will play a number of friendly matches during their stay.
"We shall travel with the entire technical bench and all 28 players,
but Brian Osumba will be left behind because he is still recuperating
from a leg injury," she told the club's website.
The team will play against Ugandan Super league teams including Vipers, Sadolin Paints and Kampala Capital City Authority.
The Brewers are hoping to reclaim the league title that has eluded
them for the last three years, as well as the KPL Top Eight trophy which
they lost to Gor Mahia last season.
"Each player here knows the kind of expectations that the management
and fans out there have placed on us. They know that we need to win at
least two trophies this season and I know that they will all work
towards that," head coach Paul Nkatha explained.
"I know this season is going to be tough because teams have engaged
in very rigorous preseason preparations, and I know that we shall
achieve our ambitions."
