The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local -

Af­ter two post­pone­ments, Thika fi­nally en­ter the KRU Cham­pi­onship fray with a home clash against the Pi­rates South Coast Pi­rates at the Thika Sta­dium to­mor­row

Thika, who were rel­e­gated from the Kenya Cup, will be seek­ing to start the sea­son with a win and hop­ing they can go on good run and se­cure pro­mo­tion back to the top tier. Chair­man Ger­ald Chege be­lieves they have learnt their from the last sea­son de­ba­cle in the top tier. “We learnt our lessons and have made adjustments and picked avery strong squad for the sea­son ahead. We hope to com­pete and gain back pro­mo­tion,” he said.

Lead­ers Res­o­lu­tion Kisii will be out to pre­serve their 100 per­cent record when they host the Univer­sity of El­doret Tro­jans at the Gusii Sta­dium while sec­ond-placed Catholic Monks made the jour­ney down to the coast to face hosts Mom­basa. USIU, who bounced back to win­ning ways with a 32-5 match Day Two win at home to the Tro­jans, host Kisumu at the USIU grounds. This is Kisumu’s first fix­ture of the new cam­paign.

Kemu Pit­bulls are yet to hon­our any fix­ture this sea­son, hav­ing al­ready given away two walkovers. They are slated to host the JKUAT Cougars in Meru with Bun­goma Sharks up against Moi Univer­sity in Bun­goma. Else­where, South Africa coach Labib Levy may be con­sid­ered for a role in the Kenya Sevens tech­ni­cal bench.
