Coming second in the recently concluded FKF-WPL season, Gaspo Women mean business in the upcoming season, as such, they have announced a three-month pre-season program.
Gaspo Women fell short of clinching the elusive FKF-WPL trophy after Vihiga Queens defended their trophy at the tail end of the season.
The club’s overseer, Edward Githua, has reiterated that next season will be their trophy to lose after laying down strong foundations in the pre-season. The pre-season is set to kick off on June 7, 2023.
Head Coach, Jacob “Ghost” Mulee has invited any interested candidates during the club’s trials on the State House grounds to turn up.
“The head coach has a detailed strategy for getting us the best players as the team needs a revamp. We are looking to strengthen all the departments but goalkeeping and defense are a top priority.
While experience is a good aspect to consider, we will be going for talent as some of our best players have proven that all they need is an opportunity and good guidance to perform at the highest level, experience notwithstanding,” Githua offered.
The team recently announced that they would be playing friendly matches in the coming days against Tanzanian and Ugandan runners-up Simba Queens FC and Kawempe Muslims Ladies FC, respectively. A high-altitude match is also on the cards before the two matches.
“We have held off plans to play a match 3900 above sea level but we have finally settled on 29 and 30 June for the trip to Mt Kenya. We are planning on inviting a few more players for the trip as the match requires more players given the conditions we will be playing under.” He added
