to mentor others
Andrew Murunga who was at Gor Mahia in the 2010 season has been attached to Bandari. Striker Abdimalik Mohammed is headed to Karuturi and could help solve coach James Nandwa’s striking worries. Also headed to the flower men is midfielder Martin Lemaiyan.
According to the long term plan of the Academy, players from the Academy [also caters for Music and Arts as well as Volleyball] are expected to return to their back yard to mentor others. All have undergone coaching courses and will be expected to bring out a new crop of players in their areas.
Though most of the academy players are young, they have wide experience with most having attended International games and tournaments in Ghana, Libya and Italy as well as turning out for the Country’s U17, U20 and U23 sides.
A further three months playing at high level will give them more experience. More players will be attached once the NYTA agrees with more clubs.
