The FKF Women’s Premier League club has urged well-wishers to come to their aid as they face a bleak future after failing to honour last weekend’s fixture due to financial challenges.

Troubled Football Kenya Federation Women’s Premier League side Trans Nzoia Falcons have appealed to well-wishers to come to their rescue amid myriad of challenges.

Trans Nzoia Falcons have been going through financial challenges with players boycotting training and matches and failed to honour last weekend’s clash with Bungoma Queens, handing their rivals a walkover.

That was after suffering a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of newcomers Soccer Assassins, a result that led to the resignation of coach Justine Okiring.

Trans Nzoia Falcons were also beaten 4-1 by Zetech Sparks before a 4-0 loss to Bunyore Starlets which has left them with no points and they are set to be docked points again after their walkover at the weekend.

“We are giving up! Whoever is ready to come in and rescue the club the doors are wide open,” the club posted on social media.

Owing to their financial challenges, the team have been forced to honour fixtures without a complete squad with their match against Bunyore Starlets seeing them field just eight players while they had 11 when they faced Zetech Sparks and Soccer Assassins but without substitutes.

“Last season, I played a crucial role in helping the team avoid relegation. However, it seems that things are not going well at the club,” Okiring told Nation last week, regarding the club’s woes.

“The newly-acquired players have decided to boycott training demanding their unpaid dues from last season. Moreover, they are only provided with one meal a day which is not enough to sustain them.”

The club was suspended from the league for one month last season after some players complained of sexual advances being made at them by some officials with a number of the club’s bosses resigning.

It is believed the Trans Nzoia county government was interested in taking over the struggling side put were put off by a hefty price tag placed on the club.
