Full house at Ligi Ndogo tryouts

More than forty five players have turned out for the trials at Ligi Ndogo.The team had invited trialists to fill vacancies for the FKF Eastern zone championships 2012.

Players have travelled from Kinangop, Athi River,Nairobi and  Mombasa.
The turnout is a blend of sorts featuring seasoned players,big name former premier league shots,high school leavers and college students. The trials conducted at Ligi Ndogo Ngong' Road and Kenya Science playgrounds will determine the final 30 players as Ligi renews another shot at the premier league title.Non-competents will be put on waivers this Friday. Those drafted will embark on an intense fitness, tactical and technical approach to the coming season.
Most players have displayed hype and a willingness to compete. The trials have witnessed flashes of brilliance as well as the coyness which comes with awe at the opportunity to feature at a high level. A number of players have shaken up the reverie,and are looking set to be around in November.
Still all is dependent on Coach Michael Kamure who is seeking to fill in the voids that he witnessed last season. He has incessantly drooled at the prospect of acquiring a top notch hitman to complement last year's top scorer, Abbey Kunrunmi.The arrival of Clifford Ouma,invited for trials at England's Crystal Palace soccer club will dim his view as he will not have to seek much further.Cliff is a daisy on air;gifted with ambidexterity and the uncanny instincts of most natural strikers:pouncing on loose balls.

Goalkeeper Charles Ouma who was on loan to premier side,City Stars returns this season.

With the departure of defender Karim Rersa for tryouts in Qatar,he is also seeking to fill in for a heady, hardworking player and a team leader.His core  is intact,therfore,racking Ws will mostly depend on how much last year's players respond to laid down programs and game day instructions.
