It is now official that Amon Wamalwa has left Homeboyz RFC for Kenya Harlequins.
The former Homeboyz RFC playmaker announced that he has officially bid the club goodbye, and is ready for his next mission at the Ngong-road-based club. This is after an eight-year tenure with Homeboyz RFC.
Speaking after the announcement, Wamalwa was grateful for his close to a decade spell with the Deejayz, noting that the lessons he picked were invaluable.
“My stay at Homeboyz has been great and amazing, creating memories that last forever, and winning lots of titles. Above all, Homeboyz has made me who I am today. I am immensely grateful for the opportunities they have given me, the trust they placed in me, and the invaluable lessons I learned along the way,” he said.
The name Wamalwa came to the limelight while he was at Homeboyz RFC under the tutelage of former Shujaa assistant coach Paul Murunga and Simon Odongo. The two coaches have since joined Kenya Harlequins. Wamalwa will be keen to extend his fierce spirit under his long-time coaches.
“It is a great feeling joining Quins. I feel excited, challenged, and safe, and at the same time, I am looking forward to helping them get back to their glory days. The decision was not an easy one to make. Homeboyz has been my home away from home. I will forever be an HBR,” he concluded.
Wamalwa joins the duo of Arnold Onzere and Richel Wangila who are also at Kenya Harlequins.
The Quins finished fourth in the 2022/23 Kenya Cup regular season with 37 points while Homeboyz RFC were off to a ninth-place finish with 15 points.
2022 was the most decorated year for the prodigy who won five accolades during the National 7s Circuit. They included the Top scorer/top point scorer, player of the year overall, Dala 7s top point scorer, and Christie’s 7s top point scorer.
He was also the ESS top point scorer, 2019/2020 15s top point scorer, 2020 Kakamega 7s runners-up, and 2017 Menengai 10s winner among other honors.
