FKF Premier League champions Tusker FC ended their week-long pre-season training camp in Kericho with a 2-1 victory over National Super League side Mara Sugar. 

Tusker pitched tent in Kericho since last Monday and have played four friendly matches winning three and drawing one, as they switch focus to the start of the season.

New signing Eric Otieno gave Tusker the lead inside the second minute when he re-directed a shot from Lawrence Luvanda into the net, before Mara levelled the score line minutes later with Dennis Maruti converting a penalty.

Coach Matano brought in fresh legs in the second half who managed to score the winner in the last three minutes of the game, courtesy of another new signing David Odoyo.

On Saturday, the brewers were in action against local side Town Warriors winning 2-0 with goals from Eric Mmata and Deogratious Ojok.

On Friday, Tusker faced newly promoted side APS Bomet drawing 1-1, with Shaphan Oyugi scoring their only goal.

The Brewers began their first friendly match was on Thursday against Wazito FC in Muhoroni, winning 2-0 with goals from Shapahan and Otieno.

“It has been a good camp for the team. We have come together to bond as well as get ourselves into good shape mentally and physically and I believe the team is now ready,” said skipper Humphrey Mieno.

“I believe we are ready to defend our title. We have built a very solid team and the togetherness and team spirit is enormous,” he added.

Despite Tusker’s good pre-season, the start of the new KPL campaign still remains unclear despite the Transition Committee scheduling next weekend as the start date.
