Ulinzi Starlets eye first win of season as Falcons visit

  • Ulinzi drew 2-2 against Zetech Sparks in their season opener last weekend at the Gems Cambridge International School and going to the next fixture they will be looking for nothing but a win.
  • Head coach Joseph Wambua understands it will be no easy task against Falcons who were the only team to win a game from the league’s first round of matches when they defeated former champions Thika Queens 2-0.

Ulinzi Starlets will be aiming for their first win of the season when they host Trans Nzoia Falcons for a Kenyan Women Premier League (KWPL) match at the new Ulinzi Sports Complex, Nairobi on Saturday.

Ulinzi drew 2-2 against Zetech Sparks in their season opener last weekend at the Gems Cambridge International School and going to the next fixture they will be looking for nothing but a win.

Head coach Joseph Wambua understands it will be no easy task against Falcons who were the only team to win a game from the league’s first round of matches when they defeated former champions Thika Queens 2-0.

“Falcons are among the title favorites because of the talent they have in their squad but we won’t be scared by that. We have to give it our all. I had problems with our attack during that first game where we looked shaky but now that’s fixed,” Wambua said.

Wambua hailed his only signing of the season, Joy Kinglday Oriyo who was roped in from Zetech Sparks saying she has started off well in her new side.

“Oriyo is the only new signing I have in my camp and I am happy for how she played her debut. She is a very lethal striker who is well known of bullying the opponents and I am sure she will be a key factor in our agenda of winning the league this season.”

Other two matches will be played on Sunday where at GEMS International School, Zetech Sparks will squire it out with Wadadia while Kisumu All Starlets will lock horns with Nakuru City Queens.
