Kariobangi Sharks FC can finally breathe a sigh of relief after keeper John Oyemba joined the growing list of contract extensions with a new three-year deal.
Oyemba was arguably the most stand out custodian in the 2017 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season, racking up a total of sixteen clean sheets as his side managed a third place finish in their debut season.
His contract with the club had already elapsed but the new deal will now see him at Sharks until January 2021. The soft spoken custodian joins the likes of Patilah Omollo, Christopher Kimani, Geoffrey Shiveka, Hillary Dan and Eric Juma in extending contracts.
Having joined Sharks from Nairobi Stima FC back in 2015, Oyemba was present as the team earned promotion to top flight football in 2016 and went on to cement his place as the first choice goalkeeper a year later.
“We are pleased to announce that goalkeeper John Oyemba has agreed to extend his contract with the club, the player penning down a three year deal with the club,” read part of a post on the club’s website.
Oyemba’s contract extension is great news to William Muluya’s side who are looking to build on last season’s third place finish.
