Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) volleyball team head coach Samson Sunguti has warned GSU’s dominance in the Kenyan Volleyball Federation National League will not go unchallenged in the 2021 season.

GSU have won the regular league title four times in a row and are eyeing their 15th in total this season which served off last weekend and now Sunguti tips other league teams to effectively compete against the paramilitary side this year.

Sunguti who led the Mombasa-based team to finish runners up in the 2019 season-their best ever- says he is not settling for anything less than the title.

“Although it’s very early to predict the season, we as KPA of course have our target and that is winning the title. We are not going for number two this year,” he said, adding: “If the management will continue to support this team like they’re doing and ensure all the top players remain at the club then we’ll be ready to wrestle GSU.”

Unlike GSU who started their season in an unusually sluggish manner for their standards managing seven points out of nine from their opening three matches, KPA got off to a flying start bagging all the nine points from their first three matches.

GSU easily won 3-0 sets against Kenya Army in their opening tie but then laboured to see off Kenya Prisons and Equity Bank in their subsequent matches with each ending 3-2 in their favour.

On the other side, KPA comfortably won in straight sets against Mombasa Prisons and Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) dropping only one set in their 3-1 sets triumph against returnees Kenya Forest Services (KFS).

African Scene

With KPA set to grace the Men’s African Club Championships for the first time this year, Sunguti says his charges are ready to balance in winning the domestic league and a fair show in the continental scene.

“We’re ready for the baptism of fire in the club championships because this is the competition we’ve been looking for a very long time. When you play with the bigwigs you get a lot of experience which will help you find it not difficult locally,” he added.

Before flying out for the maiden continental championship in April, KPA will be handed a massive boost when their star Enock Mogeni returns from Sweden where he is currently plying his professional trade.
