As part of the changes that are in line with professionalizing various departments in the club, a reshuffle has been pulled at Youth Team.
The club’s legend Jerim Onyango who was the Youth Team Manager has been moved to the club’s goalkeeping department of Youth Team and the senior team to work with the coaches already in place.
In his place, Collins Kalee who was previously attached to junior team’s technical bench will now steer the wheels as Youth Team Manager, Kennedy Ochola takes up the kit manager position with Celestinus Otieno as his assistant.
Confirming the changes, club secretary General (SG) Samuel Ochola said there is need to have a seamless team and a lean committee to make things work.
“The changes have been necessitated by the need to have a seamless team working together. There will be combined training sessions where the juniors can learn from the senior team and the coaching staff too can work and learn from each other for the betterment of the club,’’ noted the Secretary General.
SG Ochola adds that: “We will be having a lean committee with much being done at the club’s secretariat and that means, we will not be outsourcing services.”
Kalee is delighted for the new role and appreciates the club management. “I am delighted because I have been there since the inception of the junior team and I appreciate what the office has done. I will work to ensure the youth team produce players who are good enough to play at senior levels so that as a club we save on the expenditure towards signing new players.”
