KCB eye double victory as KVF league enters second round

KCB women’s volleyball team head coach Japheth Munala believes his charges have hit top form ahead of the second leg of the Kenya Volleyball Federation National League at the weekend.

The 2019 league runners up posted mixed results in the first leg and Munala is optimistic they will bounce back from last month’s stuttering start after holding intensive training at the Nyayo National Stadium Gymnasium over the last four weeks.

The Bankers will be out to right their wrongs against a rejuvenated Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) on Saturday 2 pm before a tricky fixture against former champions Kenya Pipeline the next day at the Nyayo Gymnasium.

 “Last time we lost an important match against champions Kenya Prisons and we went back to the drawing board and I’m confident we’ll find our rhythm and collect the maximum points in our two matches,” said Munala, adding: “In the first leg we struggled because the squad had not gelled well but after a intensive training over the last four weeks I believe we’re prepared to for the contest.”

KCB won one match and lost another during the first leg of KVF league, falling to Kenya Prisons (3-1) before overcoming DCI (3-0). Munala stated that their start was made even more difficult since their new recruits were unable to blend into the team due to the long break.

At the same time, the team’s captain Noel Murambi also retaliated that the squad is prepared for the weekend fixtures and that they are working hard to bag six points from their two matches.

“We’ve trained hard and rectified the errors we made on our last match, the team is ready and in good shape ahead of the weekend assignment,” said Murambi.

The second leg will be played across three venues in Nairobi, Nanyuki and Vihiga.
