Meanwhile, debutants St Ann’s Nyangoge Girls coach Benjamin Nyakundi is optimistic they will one better and make the cut for the finals.
“It is true we performed dismally last year. However we have won all our matched so far which is an indication of our tremendous growth. I am confident we will win in the finals,” he said.
