Western Stima to stick to transfer strategy by signing youthful talents
Western Stima chairman Laban Jobita says the club will focus on recruiting more young players when the transfer window opens.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, Jobita confirmed that most of the players’ contracts will end this month and the club intends to recruit more youthful players.
“Our current squad is a mixture of the veterans and young players; this is a policy that we intend to continue with even in a bigger way.
We are lucky to come from a region where football is the most loved game and we are always in that position to scout for the best young and talented players ,” Said Jobita .
Having seen their lead striker Bernard Omalla from Kisumu Boys thrive in his debut season scoring nine goals for the seventh place side, Jobita is not keen on signing established names.
“Most of our players contract are running out in June ,with the advice from the technical bench we will receive recommendation on who to keep and who to bring in to strengthen the squad ahead of next season ,”added Jobita.
The chairman is also optimistic that Kenya Power and Lighting Company will reverse their decision and continue with the sponsorship of the team, having announced earlier that they will terminate its sponsorship at the end of this month.
“Among the three teams that KPLC has terminated their sponsorship we are the biggest club and we are hopeful they win reconsider the decision and renew their support for our team,” the club chairman told Citizen Digital.
The termination will also affect National Super League sides Coast Stima and Nairobi Stima, who are sponsored by the company.
