This year’s East African Military games will be played in Kenya from August 13 to the 23rd and will end a week before the 2019-20 season kicks off, which is perfect timing for Kenya’s football representatives in the games, Ulinzi Stars, as the games will give the team the opportunity to sharpen-up where needed ahead of the new season; this according to the soldiers’ head coach Benjamin Nyangweso.
Ulinzi come in at this year’s tourney to be held at the MISC Kasarani as the defending champions and this will give them much needed impetus to come out victorious at the end.
“The games come at a very good time for us; just when we are preparing for the KPL season and I am happy because it will help us in terms of fitness and getting to improve the coordination between players,” Nyangweso is quoted as saying on Ulinzi’s official website.
“We are playing at home; we have that advantage and we must make use of it. To win this title will be our top target and it will be an additional motivation for us going to the new season,” he added.
Nyangweso, led the four time KPL champions to their last league triumph in 2010 and will be keen to add to the club’s trophy cabinet this campaign after leading the team to 8th place last season after taking over mid-season from Dunstan Nyaudo.
