With the new Kenya Cup season set to kick off on Saturday 5 November, teams are into the home stretch with regard to their preparations and kenyacup.co.ke had the chance to catch up with Strathmore Leos Head Coach Mitch Ocholla for some insights ahead of the new campaign.
Commenting on the side’s pre-season preparations, Ocholla said, “So far, so good. Everything on paper is going as planned. The results we’ve posted so far are not a true reflection of what we intend to achieve this season.”
” The fourth place finish at the National Sevens Series and the Floodies plate final loss to Homeboyz are good results that we need to improve on. Come Kenya cup, our systems should be running in top gear. We do have two new players of note, Elkeans Musonye and Brian Bango who joined us in the off season from Western Bulls.”
Talking up the Leos expectations this season, Ocholla said, “We will take a game at a time and maximize on all opportunities we create this season.”
“This season’s Kenya cup will be sizzling hot. The teams are doing a great job. There are no teams that have been promoted which makes the competition stiffer. Its good that we retained the conference system that affirms continuity for the league. It will be very competitive especially after watching the Floodies, ” he concluded.
The Strathmore Leos will open their campaign away to Menengai Cream Homeboyz. View the complete fixture list on http://www.kenyacup.co.ke/upcoming
