KPL newbies rope in Henry Omino as head coach

Kenyan Premier League newbies Kisumu All Stars have began preparations for the return top-flight season by roping in former Western Stima head coach Henry Omino in the capacity of head coach.

Omino, an experienced tactician in the western part of the country, will be deputized by Andrew Aroka and former head coach Francis Oduor.

In an unveiling hosted at the Moi Stadium early on Monday 24 June, Team Manager Alfred Adu exhibited confidence in the new inclusion to the Kisumu County Government-sponsored team.

Confident in Omino

”I am confident that Omino is one of the right persons and the best coach to handle this club, and with his massive experience we can only hope for the best,” says the Team Manager.

Omino’s last stint in the top flight was with Western Stima FC in the 2017 KPL season, where he paved way for Ugandan Makumbi Richard.

Second in NSL

Kisumu All Stars earned promotion to the Kenyan Premier League after finishing second in the second tier National Super League – just one point behind champions Wazito FC.

A team that heavily banks on local talent in the city of Kisumu, All Stars haven’t signed any player ahead of the new season and all eyes will be on Omino as teams delve into pre-season transfer business.
