Pamzo reflects on loss to KCB in season opener

Police FC head coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omolo said missing Duke Abuya and Patillah Omoto ruined his plans as they lost their opening FKF Premier League match on Sunday.

The law enforcers lost by a solitary goal to KCB FC at Kasarani Annex.

According to Pamzo, Abuya who was instrumental during their long pre-season has returned back to Tanzania to rejoin Singida Big Stars in the Tanzanian Premier League, while Omoto is nursing a knock.

“Duke scored in most of our pre-season matches and missing him days before our first match really messed up our strategies,” said Omolo.

He added, “Omoto also got a knock on our last training session which made him unavailable for selection where inexperienced players filled his position”.

The former Posta Rangers coach at the same time said that loss of concentration and 'silly' mistakes gave their opponents the match decider.

Michael Oduor scored the lone goal at the end of the first half but Omolo still believes they will be title contenders at the end of the season.


“We are going to rectify the mistakes and come back much stronger to hunt for our first three points of the season.”


Police will now regroup ahead of their second league fixture, which Omolo has promised to return to winning ways.

According to the released fixture by Football Kenya Federation they are set to face Mathare United who did not honor their opening fixture due to the ongoing case at the Sports Dispute Tribunal (SDT).

The Slum boys were relegated last season, which was declared null and void by the returning FKF National Executive Council, but challenged by APS Bomet.
