This is such a perfect chance to use the new train to Mombasa as a team and we are very excited about it. We’ve been using flights to our away matches but this, will be a good trip which will give us an opportunity to see the different parts of Kenya on our way to Mombasa, Jolawi Obondo – Team Manager
The Team Manager’s sentiments were echoed by head coach Dylan Kerr who said they are excited and looking foward to the trip.
“It’s a trip that we are looking foward to because it will be exciting to see the different scenes along the way. lt’s a perfect chance to appreciate what nature has and who wouldn’t want to enjoy such? To me and l want to believe to many of us in the team, it’s a good idea, once in a while we can explore such,” Kerr said.
