The Englishman, who is no stranger to East African Football having coached 2009 Kenyan premier league champions Sofapaka in 2012 for two months and Tanzanian side Azam FC, takes over at “Ingwe,” a side that has performed below par this season and lies 13th on the log.
The former Birmingham City FC, Academy tactician is expected to pick his technical bench by the 19th of this month. His first duty will be to lead AFC Leopards against Tusker this weekend before being on the dug out against Muhoroni Youth in the season finale.
The Briton who was picked from 49 applicants says his desire is to guide the team back to its glory days and will also quipped that he will help the club establish a stronger Youth team.
Hall who quit Azam FC in 2013 having helped them win that year’s CECAFA Kagame Club Cup in Dar, has signed a two year deal.
Meanwhile, with slightly over a month before Gor Mahia holds its club elections candidates eyeing various seats have expressed concern over the new directive to have the election exercise and the club’s member’s recruitment drive be done electronically.
One of those opposed to the regulation is Dan Oketch who is seeking the chairmanship position. Oketch says the directive by the incumbent offices’ move is aimed at rigging the forthcoming polls planned for December 11th.
Oketch also decried the manner in which election modalities is being run saying all those seeking various positions in the elections should be involved for a successful exercise. He is hopeful of unseating incumbent chairman Ambrose Rachier.
