Aberdeen Shikhoyi Cup set for kick off this weekend

The 2019 Fifteen Aside franchise popularly known as the Aberdeen Shikhoyi Cup in memory of the legendary Kenya Lioness Captain Aberdeen Shikhoyi kicks off this weekend.

This year’s Franchise will be composed of three teams made up of the 9 core teams that took part in the KRU Women’s 10 Aside Festival plus another 6 teams that took part in the Kenya University Sports Association Women Exhibition 7s games.

The first team “Tembo” will be composed of the 2019 Women 10 Aside Champions Top Fry Nakuru, Shamas Rugby Foundation, Kisumu Dolphins, Egerton university, MMUST & Maseno university. The Great Rift 10 Aside Champions, Standard Chartered Impala Ladies, Menengai Cream Homeboyz and Comras make up the second team “Chui” while the third Team, “Black Lions” will be a combination of Stanbic Mwamba Ladies, Northern Suburbs and the Kenyatta University Bladbabes.

”The Aberdeen Shikhoyi 15 Aside Franchise will run for three Sundays with a week’s break in between before we get the Lioness Select and Probables. The selected players will then be cut down further to form the Kenya Lioness team that will play Uganda Lady Cranes, if all goes according to the Women Elgon Cup plan.” said the Director in charge of Women rugby Moses Ndale.

”This is part of our plan as we look at the bigger picture which is the 15 Aside Women’s Rugby World Cup Qualifiers, that will be held in August this year.” he concluded.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: https://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Jan Zac
