Gor still needs work to thrive, says New Coach McKinistry.


Newly acquired Gor Mahia head coach Jonathan McKinstry has acknowledged that there is much work needed to improve the squad ahead of next season.

The former Uganda national team tactician guided Gor Mahia to a 1-0 win against Mombasa Combined in their first pre-season match at the newly refurbished Ronald Ngala grounds in Mombasa.

“I can’t say that the squad is not good but in every department there is a lot of work to be done to improve and I know we will be there when the league resumes,” said McKinstry.

McKinstry has however called on his players to up their game and convince him not to sign new players when the ban period lapses.

“Every new coach always wants to recruit new players but I do believe in upgrading my own so with the ban I think it is a good time for them to prove to me why I should not get into the market after the ban.”

Gor who finished third last season are planning a series of matches to give the coach time to structure his squad before the league kicks off.

The coach used 23 matches in the build-up with all the players getting a run of minutes in the friendly.

Gor Mahia were awarded Sh. 500,000 against a select side comprising of players from the two top leagues- Kenyan Premier League and the National Super League.
