Mwika urges more corporates to embrace sports sponsorship

Former Meru RFC head coach Patrick Mwika has urged more corporates in Meru to come on board and organize more sporting events to help grow talents in the region. Speaking to Citizen Digital at the end of the two-day Miathene High School Open tournament, Mwika noted that the high number of teams witnessed during the tournament is a testament of the need for more similar events. “We witnessed massive increment in the number of teams that registered for the tournament this year which is a good thing. Secondary schools, Universities and clubs alike have shown much interest in this tournament and if we can have similar tournaments then many talents will be nurtured,” he said. With the annual tournament having attracted 42 teams, Mwika commended the high level of competition witnessed in the tourney. Further stating that the competition will prepare teams adequately ahead of the upcoming Term One Secondary Schools Games. “Teams are very committed and their level of competition is so high. For sure they will be far ahead of the rest of the teams when it comes to Term One school games because of the extra training and practice,” said Mwika. The tournament in its fourth year also witnessed some catchy performances from various teams with Igembe Boy’s High School currently coached by Mwika emerging rugby 15s champions after downing host Miathene Boys 5-0. On the other hand, Meru School narrowly edged hosts Miathene by a solitary goal to become hockey champions.
