NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 26 – With the start of the new Kenya Cup season looming, Kenya Harlequin head coach Joel Ng’ang’a expects a competitive campaign.

Speaking to, the former Quins and Simbas skipper said, “This season will be very competitive as most teams have put in a lot of resources (time, money, coaches) into their preparations. There is a better understanding of the game in terms of  structured play both offensively and defensively in most teams as seen in the sevens circuit and Floodies.”

Ng’ang’a also touched on his side’s preparations, saying, “Our Conditioning Coach Stephan Ottou has been great with the boys, getting them fit and strong. He has worked with the 15s side for 3 months. Having them in shape has made it easier for us to concentrate on improving our set pieces.”

“We have been building on playing an expansive game for the last two seasons and this season will be our breakthrough.”

We may have come short of our goal of winning the Floodlit but we are focused on lifting the Kenya Cup & Enterprise Cup crowns. We have put in a lot of time and emphasis on our basics in order to make it work,” he added.

With Kenya U19 international Roxy Suchi has joining from Kabras Sugar, the experienced  Jared Owinyo returning  from the Strathmore Leos, and Isaac Adimo once again available after being tied down by work commitments last season, Ng’ang’a said;

“Roxy and Jared will fire up our forwards. Isaac Adimo is now back in Nairobi and will feature as he is now fit to play. The control he brings at number 10 is key for us. Quins will be something to watch out for, as individuals and as a team.”

Quins start their campaign with a home clash against Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad at the RFUEA Ground.
