Thika United postpones AFC friendly…
Thika United FC had planned two friendlies slated for February 18th at 9am and another one at 3pm, pitting Posta Rangers and AFC Leopards respectively in their pre-season training matches ahead of the Kenyan Premier League 2017 edition kickoff.
Following a prior booking of the Thika Sub-County Stadium, the club has been forced to call off the afternoon friendly against AFC Leopards as the Stadium is booked for the afternoon of Saturday and the whole day on Sunday, prompting a deferral.
The Brookside sponsored side, shall now only play Posta Rangers on the morning of Saturday 18th at Thika Sub-County Stadium from 9am.
Meanwhile Coach Nandwa stated to www.thikaunitedfc.com his team will continue with weekly friendlies until when the league kicks off,
“As things are of now we really don’t know when the league shall kick off, for us it’s to keep the team ready and by so doing we have planned several friendly matches every week to keep the team in shape, awaiting the fixtures’ release.”
Mathare United, AFC Leopards and Bidco FC are among the teams the coach hopes to play against in the near future if the league fails to kick off. Compiled by Ken.Magu.
