The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local - BY FRAN­CIS WADEGU/

With an op­por­tu­nity to make up for their short­falls this sea­son loom­ing, Jeri­cho All Stars are chomp­ing at the bits to face Tech­ni­cal Univer­sity of Kenya in the highly billed East Vs West Con­fer­ence grand fi­nale of the in­au­gu­ral SportPesa Su­per 8 Cham­pi­ons League on Sun­day at Nyayo Sta­dium.

Jeri­cho will be out for redemp­tion in the sil­ver­ware stakes when they clash with the univer­sity stu­dents in the do-or-die high pro­file fi­nal which spear­heads the ‘Wak­il­isha Mtaa Yako’ tag-line that seeks to bring fans back to the sta­dium to rally be­hind and sup­port their lo­cal foot­ball he­roes in the grass root com­mu­nity teams.

“The road to the Su­per 8 League fi­nals has not been easy. We have worked hard to reach where we are,” re­marked coach Thomas Okongo, who took over in March this year af­ter tak­ing over from Thika United coach James Nandwa .
