Busia County FC sets eye on KICOSCA top prize


Busia County FC  are determined to wrestle this year’s  Kenya Inter-Counties  Sports  and Cultural Association  Games which will be hosted  by Machakos County  on 19th-26th, 2017.

The team captain   Salim Suleiman  said the team will start training next week ready to give their best shot in the games that will bring  all the 47 counties for the eight day bonanza.

” We came close to winning the title in 2015 edition when we reached the final before losing to our neighbors Bungoma. Last year lady luck was not on our side  when we were knocked out of the quarterfinals stage by  Nairobi County.

We have  a strong team  that is capable of upstaging the defending champions  Kisii and  former champions  Nairobi,” he said, adding that  the coach to handle the team will be known next week.

 KICOSCA  Busia  Committee Secretary Stephen Makhanu said  Busia will enter teams in eight disciplines. They are football, choir, traditional dance, darts, tug of war  (men and women), Ajua (men), netball and volleyball men.

  Busia County  emerged winners in traditional own dance in Thika last year and third in borrowed dance. Makhanu said they are hoping to consolidate their supremacy at the games.

Busia will not enter  teams in  volleyball women and athletics. Makhanu said  the  KICOSCA national secretariat had  ruled out teams which  failed to qualify for the knock out stage  during last year’s games in Thika.
