KCB ladies volleyball team has revamped the squad ahead of the 2020 season by bringing on board Malkia Strikers head coach Paul Bitok as their technical advisor.

Bitok will now work hand in hand with team head coach Japheth Munala and his assistant David Muthui.

The rest are strength and conditioning coach Philadelphia Orlando, team physio Simon Kibe and trainer Eunice Maiyo. Moses Kimani will remain the team manager.

“We had an excellent run in 2019. We believe the new lineup sets us up for greater performance in 2020 and beyond,” said KCB Group Head of Corporate and Regulatory Affairs Judith Odhiambo who also doubles up the club patron. “We are glad to have Bitok on board, his immense experience is key in our quest for challenge in local and continental honours.”

At the same time the team has signed four new players. The quartet is attacker Sharon Chepchumba Kiprono from Kenya Pipeline and centre player Edith Wisa from Kenya Prisons.

Also joining the team from Kwathanze Secondary School are libero Sandui Chepkemoi and setter Emmaculate Nekesa Masoki.

The Bankers qualified for the 2020 Africa Club Championship as runners up after edging out Kenya Pipeline and DCI during the 2019 KCB KVF National play offs.

The team will be keen to improve on their 9th position finish during last year’s Women Club Championship held in Egypt.
