KCB women’s volleyball team begins trials to bolster squad

KCB women’s volleyball team has kicked off national trials as they seek to bolster the squad ahead of new season.

More than 30 players reported for the trials on Tuesday hoping 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 said the move is intended to increase their 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.

NEW RECRUITS

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 masterminded the 3-0 victory over Kenya Pipeline last season, says that the bankers will seek to extend their national dominance.

“It’s a great chance for new players to fulfill their dreams at KCB. We will be a force to reckon with this season,” said Maiyo.

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 over the country are invited for the trials every day from 8:00 am at the Nairobi Railway club Grounds.
