KCB women volleyball team has kicked off the national trials as they seek to bolster the squad ahead of new season.
More than 30 players reported for the trials today envisaging to be enlisted in the squad. The Bankers will be targeting to recruit at least five new players in the five day exercise at the Railway club.
KCB Head Coach Vernon Khayinga says the move will seek to increase their commercial dominance in the volleyball league.
“The overall performance last season was fair we finished third in the league, this season we will offer stiff competition to our rivals since most of the young players have matured and ready for the big stage”, said Khayinga.
The Bankers are keen on strengthening attacking and back court defence to challenge for major trophies this season. Height and basic volleyball technique are the only requirements for the new recruits according to the coach.
Team captain Eunice Maiyo who master minded the 3-0 victory over Pipeline last season says that the bankers will seek to extend their national dominance.
“It’s a great chance for new players to fulfil their dreams at KCB, we will be a force to reckon with this season”, said Doreen.
The five players will join last season’s signings Doreen Marani, Christine Psiwa and Fosca Kasisi.
KCB performed well last season reaching major finals twice finishing on top positions.
Players from all all the country are invited for the trials every day from 8:00 am at the Nairobi Railway club Grounds.
