Re­cov­ered Makuto of Prisons ready for play-offs

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local - BY AGNES MAKHANDIA /

In­ter­na­tional Eve­lyn Makuto has re­cov­ered from the knee in­jury ahead of the forth­com­ing Kenya Vol­ley­ball Fed­er­a­tion na­tional league play-offs set for Novem­ber 25-27 at the Makande Hall in Mom­basa.

Makuto, who picked the in­jury in Septem­ber dur­ing one of the Kenya Prisons teams train­ing ses­sions at the Nairobi West ground, has missed the last two KVF legs in Voi and Eldma Ravine re­spec­tively.

The reg­u­lar Kenya Prisons and na­tional team left at­tacker ac­knowl­edged her re­cov­ery wouldn’t have come at a right time. She said: “It’s sad I have missed the last two KVF legs which set the stage for this month’s play-off.

But I am happy my team-mates staged a good per­for­mance and fin­ished the reg­u­lar league top of the stand­ing. They were also un­beaten and that is some­thing to be proud of,”

She added: “We are cur­rently train­ing at the Sa­fari­com in­door Arena, Kasarani and the train­ing is go­ing well.”

Asked about the forth­com­ing play-offs, Makuto, who is a sib­ling to for­mer most sought af­ter na­tional team player Asha Makuto, Kenya Pipe­line mid­dle blocker Vi­o­let Makuto and Gen­eral Ser­vice Unit men player Luke Makuto, said they hope to re­claim the tro­phy, which they last won in 2013.

Makuto, how­ever, said it will not be easy since their op­po­nents and cham­pi­ons Kenya Pipe­line, Nairobi Wa­ter and KCB are also ey­ing the tro­phy.
