Nzoia sign three, prowl the market for head coach

Nzoia Sugar have signed three players as they tighten their squad ahead of the new campaign.

Joining the outfit are Felix Oluoch and Erick Mango from KPL side Posta Rangers. Oluoch has penned a three year deal while Mango has put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

Both Mango and Oluoch are strikers and their immediate responsibility will be to help the sugar millers get goals when the new season starts.

Moses Mudavadi has also joined the team from Bandari FC, inking a two-year deal.

Meanwhile the club are in the market for a new head coach.

This comes barely a month after the club confirmed the appointment of John Muraya as the new team manager.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, club chairman Evans Kadenge said the committee revoked earlier decision to appoint Sylivester Murukurwa as tactician since he has many responsibilities by virtue of being the company’s employee.

He however said Murukurwa will deputize whoever will be hired to lead the team.

“The club is currently looking for a head coach to take charge of the team as they prepare to compete in the top league; the committee noted Murukurwa being an employee of the factory makes it difficult to commit himself to the team 100%. He will however deputize whoever will take up the role,” Kadenge said.

The club also made it clear the qualifications they’re looking for.

“He must have a coaching certificate, Caf C license and above, and a good communicator in English and Kiswahili languages.

“Must have over four years of experience in football management with KPL teams and must have been either a coach or an assistant coach with a KPL team in the last two or more years.

“Being a former player in KPL or in its equivalent is an added advantage and must also have a record of steering teams to success,” Kadenge said, adding that the new tactician will also be required to nurture young talent to realize their potential.
