Boys’ football will be one of the most hotly contested sports at this year’s Western Region Secondary School Games that begin on Monday in Mumias.

Bungoma County will be represented by county champions Kabula Secondary and Bukembe High School who lost 0-1 to the former in the last weekend’s final to claim the runners up slot.

And  ahead of the regional competitions, Bukembe have vowed to do anything possible to win the title.

The Sudi based side is expected to face stiff competition from Kakamega County champions Kakamega High School popularly known as ‘Green Commandos’, county’s second placed team Koyonzo, Busia’s AC Butonge, Kamuriai, Vihiga’s Ebwali and Chevakali.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Bukembe’s head coach David Kalamu said his boys are up to the task and ready to make the county proud.

“My boys are in high spirit and have promised to deliver; our aim is to represent the county at national championship set for Eldoret,” Kalamu said.

Bukembe are set to be handed a massive boost with the return of Patrick Otieno and David Chesoli who both ply their professional trade with KPL outfit Nzoia Sugar FC.

The duo played no role in their team’s final match at the county level owing to injuries.

Otieno who has netted thrice for Nzoia this season has been so instrumental for Bukembe, scoring in almost every match; lifting the Sudi based side through to finals but sustained an injury during training, missing their clash with Kabula.

“Otieno and Chesoli are back. They are in good form; training daily so we are hoping to lift the title in Mumias. Our opponents must brace for a fierce challenge from my boys, we are aiming higher,” added Kalamu.
