NSL Mathare United bolster promotion push with seven new signings

Mathare United fortifies its squad with seven new signings in a push for promotion to the Premier League.

National Super League side Mathare United has intensified its bid for promotion back to the Premier League by securing the signatures of seven talented players on short-term contracts until the end of the season. 

This strategic move comes as Mathare United currently holds the second position on the NSL table with an impressive 36 points earned from 16 matches played this season.

The newly acquired talents, namely Donald Ange, Mohammed Kilume, Stephen Okola, Athman Ali, Boaz Maheri, Daniel Odhiambo, and Kevin Alloys, bring a wave of fresh optimism to the squad as they aim to climb back to the top tier of Kenyan football.

Among the seven recruits, Donald Ange stands out with his remarkable return to Mathare United for a second stint. 

Previously, Ange left the club and joined Kariobangi Sharks, where he made a notable impact by scoring six crucial goals. Unfortunately, his season was marred by an injury that saw him sidelined for the latter part of the campaign.

However, Ange has come back with renewed determination and promptly made his presence felt by scoring a goal in the 2-0 victory over Silibwet Leons last weekend.

Two other key additions are Mohammed Kilume and Stephen Okola, with Kilume joining from KCB, while Okola makes the switch from Sofapaka to don the famous yellow and green jersey of Mathare United.

  "The duo bring with them much-needed experience as we target promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, the club said in a statement. 

Their proven track record is expected to bolster the team's midfield and defensive capabilities significantly.

Boaz Maheri and Kevin Alloys, the newcomers from Nairobi United and Gusii FC, respectively, may have once been adversaries on the pitch, but their impressive performances against Mathare United earlier in the season have earned them spots on the team. 

Not to be overlooked is the young talent, Athman Ali, who has made the leap from regional side Kibwezi FC to join Mathare United. 

With these fresh talents now in their ranks, Mathare United is gearing up for a challenging away fixture in Kisumu this Sunday.
