I have a commitment to Gor Mahia and my focus is on building the team for next year’s CAF Champions League and another premier league medal. We have worked hard this season and will definitely put in more effort to perform better,” Said the jubilant tactician“It has taken combined effort from the players, staff and club officials for Gor Mahia to play how it did and we can only get better. We have identified players and areas to strengthen so we are due to sit down as a club and make decisions, the right ones for next season’s busy schedule.” He added.Dylan Kerr has been named the September Fidelity Insuarance Coach of the Month. Photo/DYLAN KERRKerr has promised to wrap the league title with a good display against Sony Sugar in their last match of the season this Saturday in Kisumu. Besides playing for maximum points in that tie, Kerr wants to give the fans a good season ender.“The Kenyan league is big and should be supported more. The league organizers and federation should do more to market the league to bring fans to stadium. It’s really disheartening to see 22 fans in the stadium and thousands of empty seats yet the football served is of high quality. Something must be done to rectify that.”“Our last game should be thrilling and we have worked on it without any complacency of having won the title. We want to play well and win for our fans. That way lifting the title feels good. Losing a match then walking to collect winners’ medals does not feel right so we have to win that game,” He added.The Briton, who joined Gor in mid season after Jose Marcelo ‘Zemaria’ had ditched the club, has an outstanding record with the Kenyan giant club, only losing once against Mathare United.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)

Arsene Wenger has revealed Arsenal could complete their first transfer of the January window within 10 days.The Gunners are being heavily linked with a move for Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny, with some reports suggesting a medical has already been passed, although he will still have to get a work permit.But, should the deal for the Egyptian go through, Wenger has admitted it’s unlikely he will buy any more players, insisting he has plenty of players returning from injury soon.Asked whether he would respond to questions about any possible moves, despite his usual coyness, Wenger replied: “I don’t give much away [about transfers] because I don’t know [what’s going on].“I want to talk about them and hopefully we are capable of doing something in the next 10 days.“It’s more about quality than quantity because our players will not stay out injured forever. Francis Coquelin is starting to run, Santi Cazorla will be back in mid-February, and Mikel Arteta is back now so, hopefully, if we can add one and, if needed, two maximum.“It’s not a dream. Nobody knocks at your door at Christmas and says ‘I have a fantastic player to sell to Arsenal.’ You have to be realistic.”

Gradually they pulled back the lead with their never say die attitude and with the last puc of the game they got the match winning point. This is a great achievement for a very young Carndonagh team, credit is also due to St Eunans who played their part in a great game. Final score Carndonagh 3.8 St Eunans 2.10.
