OFFICIAL: Chemelil to dish a walkover against KCB

Chemelil Sugar FC will dish a walkover in their Kenyan Premier League week ten game against KCB FC.

The Muhoroni based side was slated to take on the bankers at the Kenyatta Stadium-Machakos on Wednesday but that won't happen since the players have not travelled for the clash after breaking camp on Tuesday.

According to a Futaa Source at the Chemelil camp, the players who are yet to receive any salaries this season and have been depending on well-wishers to keep them going were told by the office on Tuesday that they couldn't afford the trip to Machakos.

"They have not been paid a dime this season and have been depending on friends and well-wishers for their daily bread. The office told them yesterday that they won't be travelling to Machaklos since they have no money and its something that has deflated them," the source said.

Playing for the Badge

A player who sought anonymity further added that they have tried their best to play for the badge but nothing has been forthcoming.

"We have been here as a team despite all the struggles. Some of us just want to play football and that's the reason we have been training despite the challenges. To know that the office can't afford to pay for our trip is saddening," the player added.

This is the second walk over Chemelil will be dishing this season after failing to honour their game against Bandari earlier.

Another team who have dished two walkovers is Sony Sugar FC who failed to show up against AFC Leopards in their own backyard and Tusker FC.
