Kariobangi Sharks have moved with speed to tie down five of their long serving players, by renewing their contracts.
Sharks go into the 2018 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season seeking to better their debut performance which saw them finish third overall.
The current transfer window has not been a walk in the park for them as they have lost several players to other teams, with the most notable exit being that of top scorer Masoud Juma who joined South African top side Cape Town City FC.
The William Mulya coached side is however relieved with the extension of contracts for Patilah Omotto, Christopher Kimathi, Geoffrey Shiveka, Hillary Dan and Eric Juma. Most interestingly is that the five have been born and raised in Kariobangi.
Details of the contracts have not been revealed.
“The five have been great servants of the team giving their all when called upon. Having walked with the team for this long and with their experience, the contract renewal signal the confidence they have with the team. It’s truly an exciting time to see this happen and maintaining the family unit that we have always been,” said Sharks Chairman Robert Maoga.
